Kane returned to the WWE during this week’s episode of SmackDown Live and the popular tag team of Team Hell No reunited as well. However, what does this mean for Kane’s mayor aspirations?
For those who don’t know, WWE superstar Kane’s real name is Glenn Jacobs and he is running for mayor of Knox County in Tennessee. Back on May 2, Jacobs picked up 14,633 votes in the primaries, 23 more votes than the second place finisher, to move on in the election.
Jacobs will face Democrat Linda Haney on Aug. 2 for the Mayor role in Knox County, the third largest county in the state. Jacobs is a Libertarian.
However, two-and-a-half weeks before that election, Kane will team with his old tag team partner Daniel Bryan in a match at the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
The Kane return to the WWE happened at the end of SmackDown Live. Bryan was about to beat Luke Harper when Erick Rowan interfered. As they beat him down, the red lights came on, the explosion at the entrance occurred, and Kane came down to the ring.
Kane saved Daniel Bryan and then asked for a hug. It was strange but makes sense because when Team Hell No partnered up before, they were forced to go to counseling together and ended up hugging it out to become a successful tag team.
The pair hugging left SmackDown Live general manager Paige so excited she awarded them with a tag team title shot at Extreme Rules on July 15 against The Buldgen Brothers.
