Summary

The surprising story of how wrestling superstar Glenn "Kane" Jacobs beat all the odds to become the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.

Even in his heyday in wrestling, Jacobs was inspired to pursue politics by popular libertarian figures such as former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, Republican Senator Rand Paul, Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano and others, and that led him to fulfill his own political ambitions.

Before becoming Mayor Kane, Glenn "Kane" Jacobs was one of WWE's top Superstars for over two decades and traveled the globe with the likes of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, John Cena, Ric Flair, and many others. He dominated the WWE with The Undertaker as the "Brothers of Destruction." Kane reinvented himself with the help of Daniel Bryan forming "Team Hell No." He set "Good ol' JR", Jim Ross on fire.

The wrestler-turned-politician hasn't hung up his wrestling boots yet. Politics is a contact sport and Jacobs is using his wrestling skills in that arena. Jacobs supports President Trump and his agenda, and is implementing conservative policies in Tennessee.

Awful Kane

Kane forces his republican views and chasing the "American Dream", not a great wrestling memoir.

Great Story

Glenn Jacobs should be an inspiration for all free thinking Americans. A great wrestler and I am sure he will be a great Mayor.

Great book

This book goes way into every story you’d think he’d get into. It’s been a long journey and it’s great to know how it is from someone on the good side.

It Didn't Suck...

Being a big fan of Kane and the articulate corporate Kane makes me glad that he wrote this book and also narrated this book. this book did not suck. this book shows that the American dream is still a valid dream. I would recommend this book to Friends are family.

More interesting than I anticipated

I came in expecting more or less a audiobook of tales from the living legend Glenn “Kane” Jacobs, but by the end I came to appreciate him for far more than just what he showed on tv, but for his drive to do what he set his mind to despite numerous setbacks, and does give me somewhat of a different drive.
