Kane responds to chair shot comments from fan

Feb 13, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Veteran WWE Superstar Kane (Glenn Jacobs) took to Twitter on Friday and fired back at a fan who wondered about him being Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee after taking chair shots to the head during his pro wrestling career.

A user responded to an official Knox County Government tweet with the Mayor’s statement on almost 1,000 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine going missing.

In a now-deleted tweet, the user wrote, “Maybe don’t have a guy who used to get hit in the head with a steel chair on the regular as your mayor?”

Kane fired back and pointed out how WWE banned steel chair shots to the head several years back.

“WWE banned chair blows to the head years ago so good job staying on top of your material! Nevertheless, I do love a good game of childish insults so please continue with your derisive invective. But nothing too verbose or sesquipedalian. My language skills are obviously shot,” wrote The Big Red Mayor.

Another fan responded to Kane and wrote, “One minute it’s all fake an the next you’ve been hit too hard too often. These people need to pick a side lol.”

Kane agreed, writing, “Yep, you hit the nail on the head (but not the wrestler).”

Kane continued going back & forth with a few more friendly fans, admitting that he had to look up some of his comeback.

WWE officially banned chair shots to the head in 2010, around 8 or 9 years before Kane started working a more limited in-ring schedule. It’s no secret that Kane took many brutal chair shots before that while making a name for himself in WWE.
