In case you haven’t heard, Glenn Jacobs – a.k.a. Kane – is running for mayor of Knox County in Tennessee. And if that’s not bizarre enough for you, his former tag team partner, Daniel Bryan, is joining him for a fundraising event in Knoxville on Oct. 5.

But if even that’s not crazy enough, the event is legitimately called Yes, Yes, Yes-Fest!
Man, therapy really did work wonders for Team Hell No.
All jokes aside, Jacobs is taking his candidacy seriously. He’s running for the Republican nomination on a platform of limited government and low taxes and has vowed to tackle issues like the opioid epidemic, education, and competitiveness in the global economy. Heck, if I could I’d vote for him – and not just because I’m a fan.
Jacobs announced that Bryan’s appearance at the event on his campaign’s Facebook page:
“We were tag-team champions together, I would argue one of the greatest tag-teams in WWE. Normally I don’t like yes men, but I really like this yes man. Because not only is he one of the greatest performers in the history of WWE, he is also a friend of mine.”
Bryan isn’t the only WWE star to campaign for Kane, either. Ric Flair also attended a fundraising event for Jacobs in July.
The primary isn’t until May, so I’m sure Jacobs will have many other events like Yes, Yes, Yes-Fest! leading up to the election. Here’s wishing him good luck!
