Kane from WWE, now a mayor, voted against a mask ordinance and Twitter went wild

In a vote to determine whether or not people would have to wear masks inside certain buildings in order to uphold hygiene standards in the battle against COVID-19, Mayor of Knox County Tennessee Glenn Jacobs (aka Kane from WWE) was the only one who voted no.

Twitter netizens began to stir awake, pointing out that Jacobs, as Kane, wore a mask for a big chunk of his wrestling career and finding the disconnect hilarious. Some of them were quick to react, responding to the initial tweet with gifs, photos, and anecdotes from the mayor’s former career.




Twitter really is a wild place to be.
