A spokesman for Glenn Jacobs told the Knoxville News Sentinel that Kane still planned to wrestle at the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel on November 2 in Saudi Arabia, despite the controversy surrounding the event. Back in August, Jacobs became the mayor of Knox County, Tennessee.
This was his comment at the time, through Jacobs' spokesman, Rob Link.
"Mayor Jacobs won't speculate on Mr. [Jamal] Khashoggi's disappearance. However, he and his family are in the mayor's thoughts and prayers."
Last month it was announced WWE was donating $100,000 to the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation for Kane's upcoming appearances. WWE will present a check to the foundation at the next WWE live event in Knoxville, which is tentatively scheduled for January 2019.
In an update by the same news outlet above, it seems Kane is still committed to go to the event.
"Mayor Jacobs is still going to the Crown Jewel event because he made a commitment to not only the WWE, but the Knoxville Public Safety Foundation and the first responders of Knoxville and Knox County."
