According to a report from WVLT in Knoxville, Knoxville Mayor and WWE Superstar Glenn “Kane” Jacobs will be donating his Royal Rumble appearance fee to charity. The money will be donated to the Knox County Mayor’s Applied Technology Scholarship Fund for TCAT Knoxville.
The site also reports that Jacobs was given a COVID-19 rapid test before he left. He received another one when he got to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. He then received a third one before he returned to work. During his travels, he wore a CDC-approved face mask and kept his distance from everyone when he wasn’t in the ring.
Jacobs began the scholarship last month and initially donated $5,000. The scholarship benefits Knox County employees who are students at TCAT Knoxville.
