The political Brothers of Destruction
Glenn Jacobs, better known to WWE fans as Kane, is currently campaigning to become mayor in Knox County, Tennessee. On Thursday, the “Big Red Machine” ran a fundraising event to boost his efforts to become mayor, and boy did he ever have quite the special guest on hand to support his political quest. It’s been advertised for a few weeks now, but none other than The Undertaker showed up on Thursday night to lend his support to his storyline brother. Fans and supporters were able to get their picture taken with the famous duo, and really, it’s just a sight to behold seeing these two together on a political venture.
Considering The Undertaker rarely makes appearances in public out of character, this was a nice gesture on his behalf to support his longtime real-life friend. It’s still a bit too early to tell whether Kane could actually pull out the mayoral victory, but he’s pulling out all the stops in his candidacy, that’s for sure.
