WWE Donating $100,000 To Knoxville Public Safety Foundation

According to The Knox News, WWE is making a donation of $100,000 to The Knoxville Public Safety Foundation at the request of Knox County Mayor Glen Jacobs, known in WWE circles as Kane. The request for a donation was made by Kane as “appreciation for making a series of appearances for WWE this fall”, one of which is The Crown Jewel Event in Saudi Arabia. Kane has also not ruled out wrestling for WWE, even while serving as mayor. WWE will be presenting the check to the Foundation in January of 2019 when the company holds a live event in Knoxville. Below is what WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon said along with the response of Knox County Mayor Glen Jacobs (Also Known As Kane):
