Kane presents the $100,000 check in Knoxville.
During a recent Q&A session on Reddit, former World Heavyweight Champion and Knox County Mayor Glenn "Kane" Jacobs revealed that he stuck to his WWE 'Crown Jewel' commitment in the midst of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi's murder because WWE donated a $100,000 check to the 'Knoxville Public Safety Foundation' before the Khashoggi story came to the forefront. Jacobs added that he was not willing to break that promise to the first responders of the area that he is the Mayor of.
At tonight's WWE Live event in Knoxville, Tennessee, Jacobs was introduced by former WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins ahead of Rollins' scheduled bout against the current I.C. Champion Dean Ambrose.

Jacobs said that he has had some proud moments in WWE but being at the Knoxville live event is something that he is most proud of because he was presenting a $100,000 check on behalf of World Wrestling Entertainment to the 'Knoxville Public Safety Foundation'.
Although Glenn "Kane" Jacobs is focused on his Mayoral duties, in interviews over the past few months he has not ruled out the idea of returning to the ring.
Once tonight's live event in Knoxville concludes, Fightful will have results from the show published on the site.
