Glenn Jacobs, who wrestles as Kane in WWE, said he was seriously considering running for Mayor of Knox County, as a Republican.
He said he would make his decision after the presidential election.
He said he's talked with current mayor Tim Burchett about it.
Knox County covers the city of Knoxville, the area that Jacobs lives in.
Jacobs did an interview with WBIR television saying he's looking at doing so because he cares so much about the community.
"That's the only reason I would consider getting into any sort of government because I do care very deeply. and I think it's incumbent upon people who care about the communities to try and make a difference.
Jacobs noted that for work, he could live anywhere in the U.S., but settled in Knoxville because he love East Tennessee.
Jacobs first lived in Knoxville when he worked under the name Unabom for Jim Cornette's Smoky Mountain Wrestling promotion,. as a tag team partner of Al Snow.
