Russian Connections Surface in Tennessee Republican Mayoral Candidate's Campaign

The fix is in! WWE superstar and demon from hell Kane looks likely to be the next mayor of Knox County, Tennessee, and already his allies from the world of professional wrestling are taking over the county.

Though Kane is set to team up with Daniel Bryan, a radical leftist who helped campaign for him during the primary and supports compost toilets and Veganism, to face the Bludgeon Brothers at WWE Extreme Rules this weekend, he spent yesterday campaigning at a local auction. But Kane wasn't alone — he brought along Rusev, a fellow WWE competitor who is set to take on AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at Extreme Rules.

Further, it seems that Rusev was shown the royal treatment, with current Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett officially declaring it "Rusev Day" in Knox County, honoring the Bulgarian wrestler who has shown support for Russia in the past. At an event in 2014 in the UK, a personal representative of Russian President Vladimir Putin read a proclamation of congratulations for Rusev's accomplishment in winning the United States Championship. According to Rusev's wife, Lana, Rusev's victory served to demonstrate Russia's superiority over the United States. Buchett is running for Congress.

How can the people of Knox County elect a man whose associates are open supporters of America's greatest enemy? If Kane captures the tag team titles at Extreme Rules, Rusev captures the WWE Championship, and Kane becomes Knox County mayor, their combined power and influence will be unimaginable. Of course, WWE Hall-of-Famer Donald Trump is currently the President of the United States as well, and his connections with Putin are also well documented. With the current mayor already paying tribute to Putin's champion, has the battle already been lost? Early voting begins today, so hopefully Knox County officials will closely monitor the election for any interference from Russia or Rusev on Kane's behalf.
