According to Knox News, WWE Superstar Kane is receiving criticism because he is wrestling while running for major in Knox County, Tennessee and the early voting starts on July, 13th. Kane opponent Linda Haney said that Kane should take the job seriously by communicating with his constituents.
“I was really stunned to find out he was still pursuing it. I thought it was in the past. I thought in this crucial time he’d want to be here and be with the people. Being an entertainer doesn’t make you a political figure. It may get you some votes, but I believe people want someone with common sense and who is (ready to lead).”
Kane responded to the comments of Democratic opponent Linda Hayney that he would work full-time after he wins the election in Knox County. The former Major Mike Ragsdale and current Mayor Tim Burchett revealed that Kane is seriously preparing to become the Mayor to serve the people.
In his defense, Kane said, “After I am elected mayor, I’ll be mayor. (Though) I may still do a few special things. I’ve done it for 23 years now and have quite a history, it’ll always be part of my life. I think the question is, if I am taking it seriously, and of course I am. I wouldn’t (be running) if not. I’m sure some people will say that (I’m not focused) and some others will say that’s the coolest thing ever. Again, you can’t make everyone happy. You just do what you can and that’s it … you’re always going to catch criticism no matter what you do.”
