When you think about it, the world of politics is a lot like the world of pro wrestling. Both are dominated by larger than life characters, bitter feuds, soap opera-style plot twists and shock victories. Both can be utterly ridiculous at times, but also extremely entertaining. Perhaps this is why the two worlds mix so well.
Yes, you heard me; wrestling and politics have a long history of overlapping, as we’ve seen very recently with Glenn Jacobs (AKA, Kane) becoming the new mayor of Knox County, Tennessee. In celebration of the ‘Big Red Machine’s triumph at the polls, we’re going to look back at five other times pro wrestling and politics collided. Strap in, everyone, this is going to weird.
