QU Alumnus (and What Nightmares Are Made Of) Wrestles Political Career
Following in the footsteps of the great Jesse Ventura, it looks like another pro wrestling superstar may be looking to pile drive (that’s a thing, right?) the world of politics…and this time, he’s a Quincy guy.
In a recent interview with rare.us, the Quincy [College] University alumnus wrestler known as Kane (aka Glenn Jacobs) revealed that he is considering a run for a political office (perhaps even mayor of his current hometown, Knoxville, Tennessee).
In the interview, he stresses his Libertarian philosophies and what he defines as The American Dream.
“Maybe we need fresh blood and new perspective…I think that’s maybe what people are looking for,” he says.
Perhaps Kane, whom WWE.com describes as “a monstrous abomination that seems to have been extracted directly from your childhood nightmares” is right.
Jacobs attended Quincy University from 1985 to 1987 where, at seven feet and 300 pounds (billed anyway), he was a dominant force on the basketball court. Following his sophomore year, he transferred to Northeast Missouri State to pursue football where he (presumably) destroyed everything in his path.
PLEASE let this happen!
