One article that I read about Kane running for office mentions that in reality he is only 6'6 275ibs.

jbcarol:
I hate that he has been off of local radio for the last two months due to equal time.

That makes watching him catch a grown man jumping off the top rope on the outside, gorilla pressing him, and throwing him back in the ring over the top rope at damn near 50 even more impressive.

By all accounts Kane is a pretty good dude, I hope he does well.

Mayor Jacobs just became 247 champ pinning R Truth under the shadow of Neyland Stadium goalpost.
