World Wrestling Entertainment star Glenn Jacobs, known to fans by his stage-name Kane, is reportedly weighing a primary challenge against Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.).

According to libertarian magazine Reason [2], sources close to the athlete have indicated he’s “open to the possibility” of entering the political ring against Alexander.

Jacobs, who currently resides in Knoxville, Tenn., has been moderately active in libertarian politics, acting as an outspoken opponent of an Internet sales tax and endorsing Ron Paul [3] during the 2008 election.
