Kane and Titus O’Neil are each coming out with autobiographical books later this year.
Glenn “Kane” Jacobs’ book will be called Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and Liberty and will be released on November 26.
In an era where political outsiders are successfully challenging the establishment, WWE superstar Glenn “Kane” Jacobs won the election to become mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
Even in his heyday in wrestling, Jacobs was inspired to pursue politics by popular libertarian figures such as former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, Republican Senator Rand Paul, Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano and others, and that led him to fulfill his own political ambitions.
Before becoming Mayor Kane, Glenn “Kane” Jacobs was one of WWE’s top Superstars for over two decades and traveled the globe with the likes of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, Ric Flair, and many others. He dominated the WWE with The Undertaker as the “Brothers of Destruction.” Kane reinvented himself with the help of Daniel Bryan forming “Team Hell No.” He set “Good ol’ JR,” Jim Ross on fire.
The wrestler-turned-politician hasn’t hung up his wrestling boots yet. Politics is a contact sport and Jacobs is using his wrestling skills in that arena. Jacobs supports President Trump and his agenda, and is implementing conservative policies in Tennessee.
Titus O’Neil’s book, under his real name Thaddeus Bullard, will be called There’s No Such Thing As a Bad Kid: How I Went from Stereotype to Prototype and will be released on August 6.
An inspiring story from one of WWE’s most charitable Superstars
One conversation from one caring person can change the course of a child’s life ― Thaddeus Bullard knows that first-hand. Growing up, he was repeatedly confronted with negative words and actions. By the time he was a teenager, he figured that he was the bad kid everyone said he was ― until an adult looked him in the eye and said, “There is no such thing as a bad kid.” Unfortunately, like young Thaddeus, many children across North America are labeled “bad.” They may have short attention spans, unstable home environments, inattentive parents, or learning difficulties; they may get into trouble at school, get bullied, or bully others. Often, these young people are diagnosed with an emotional or behavioral disorder and placed in special education classes. They internalize these labels, and the imposed limitations affect their ability to learn, behave, and fit in with others.
There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Kid chronicles Thaddeus’s turbulent childhood years as he encountered those who helped him to shed the label and realize his unique greatness and his value and potential. Thaddeus’s remarkable story will provide hope and inspiration to children in similar circumstances and will help guide well-meaning adults in how to pay forward their successes to a generation of disadvantaged children.
