WWE News: Matt Hardy to campaign for Kane
The WWE locker room appears to be firmly behind Kane's mayoral bid.
What's the story?
According to an announcement on Kane's Facebook page, Matt Hardy will help the former WWE Champion in his campaign to become Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
In case you didn't know...
Kane announced his candidacy for Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee on April 11, 2017, and was endorsed by Senator Rand Paul. He also previously stated that his focus would be on creating jobs and bringing new businesses to the area.
In the interim, however, Kane has returned to professional wrestling, primarily feuding with former powerlifter Braun Strowman on WWE's flagship show, Monday Night Raw.
The heart of the matter
The event featuring Matt Hardy will take place from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on Thursday, January 25, and will cost either 25$ in advance or 35$ at the door. Here is the statement posted on Kane's Facebook page:
"Tickets will be available tomorrow morning for our event coming up on Thursday, January 25th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm. The link to purchase tickets will be posted on both our facebook page and our website.
We understand that this is during the work/school week and that you may be tired when you arrive…but we promise, by the time you leave….you will be WOKEN!!!!
Tickets will be $25 in advance OR $35 at the door. Tickets will be limited so be sure to purchase ahead of time or your chance to meet Matt Hardy will be DELETED!"
The Knox County, Tennessee, mayoral election will take place on May 01, 2018. Prior to that, Kane will attempt to win the Universal Championship from Brock Lesnar in a triple threat match also featuring Braun Strowman at the Royal Rumble on January 28, 2018.
Whether or not you agree with Kane's libertarian values, it's hard not to feel happy that professional wrestlers can now make an impact on society outside the squared circle.
