Mayor Glenn Jacobs votes no for public building masks in Tennessee

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to the New York Post, WWE legend Kane does not seen to like masks during this coronavirus pandemic. Glenn Jacobs, who is a mayor in Knox County, Tennessee wrote a mask for much of his career in sports entertainment.

Yet, during the pandemic, he does not believe that people need a mask during visits to public buildings. He was the only individual, who voted against the Knox County Board of Health.


According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, there was a 7-1. Besides Jacobs — who has been out off of WWE TV programming since being named the mayor — it also included six medical professionals and a Knox County Schools member.

Despite Jacobs one vote, his voice was outweighted by the others, who voted for a mask in public. And this went into effect on Friday and will be in place for the foreseeable future.

This was put in place due to ‘new coronavirus cases and hospitalizations have increased in recent days.’

One person on the board said that wearing a mask could potentially limit hospitalizations moving forward.

“Masks impact transmissions, so in three weeks cases have not spiked, so in six weeks hospitalizations have not been affected,” Dr. James Shamiyeh told the paper. “There’s a natural lag in any conversation that you have around COVID.”

The 53-year-old Republication succeeded Tim Burchett. He made his wrestling debut in 1992 and wrestled under many names, including Angus King, Bruiser Mastino, Christmas Creature, Diesel, Doomsday, Mayor Glenn Jacobs, Isaac Yankem, DDS, Kane, Mike Unabomb, and Unabomb.

However, it wasn’t until 1997 when he emerged as Kane when his career started to take off as a pro wrestler.
