Current Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee and WWE Hall Of Famer Kane has named the US President he’d throw off the top of Hell In A Cell.
Now best known by his government name of Glenn Jacobs, Kane was a guest on The Babylon Bee podcast when the discussion brought together his two worlds of professional wrestling and politics. Although Kane has only competed in five Hell In A Cell matches, he is somewhat synonymous with the match after making his unforgettable debut during the inaugural one between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.
While Kane says there are a few candidates to be thrown off the Cell à la Mick Foley, there is one name at the top of his list:
“Quite a few, actually, probably the number one would be LBJ [Lyndon B. Johnson] because he ramped up the Vietnam War and The Great Society. So he was the worst and then there were others that were not great, all the really bad. But when we look at the double whammy of the warfare state and the welfare state, I think he’s the epitome of that and we’re still dealing with that. He was a big guy too, that actually might be a pretty good match.”
As for which US President The Big Red Machine would want to team up, there is only one choice for Kane:
“It would be me and George Washington. Well, if you’re saying I’m part of the tag team, it would be me and George Washington because you know, we could look at criticisms of Washington and, um, you know, certainly many of those ballots. Um, but frankly the country just wouldn’t be here if it hadn’t been for George Washington. He was the most important and the greatest person in American history.”
Kane’s last appearance in a WWE ring came at the 2021 Royal Rumble when he took part in the men’s Rumble match. In April he was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame alongside Rob Van Dam, Eric Bischoff, Molly Holly, The Great Khali, and Ozzy Osbourne.
