Glenn “Kane” Jacobs’ autobiography “Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and Liberty” will be released through the Hachette Book Group in hardcover and ebook on November 26.
Jacobs, currently serving as the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, will cover his career in wrestling and how he got started in politics up to his victory in the 2018 election.
According to Knox News, the book initially was going to be ghostwritten by Jack Hunter, who has helped Senators Rand Paul and Jim DeMint with books. Hunter is a former white nationalist and League of the South member. Jacobs says that Hunter only helped stylistically and was not part of the final project.
Here is the release describing the book:
In an era where political outsiders are successfully challenging the establishment, WWE superstar Glenn “Kane” Jacobs won the election to become mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
Even in his heyday in wrestling, Jacobs was inspired to pursue politics by popular libertarian figures such as former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, Republican Senator Rand Paul, Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano and others, and that led him to fulfill his own political ambitions.
Before becoming Mayor Kane, Glenn “Kane” Jacobs was one of WWE’s top Superstars for over two decades and traveled the globe with the likes of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, Ric Flair, and many others. He dominated the WWE with The Undertaker as the “Brothers of Destruction.” Kane reinvented himself with the help of Daniel Bryan forming “Team Hell No.” He set “Good ol’ JR,” Jim Ross on fire.
The wrestler-turned-politician hasn’t hung up his wrestling boots yet. Politics is a contact sport and Jacobs is using his wrestling skills in that arena. Jacobs supports President Trump and his agenda, and is implementing conservative policies in Tennessee.
