LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – After making good on his bet with Mayor Linda Gorton, former WWE superstar Kane (otherwise known as Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs) dropped by Shriners Hospital for Children.

Prior to the basketball game between Kentucky and Tennessee, Jacobs made a friendly wager with Lexington Mayor Gorton.  He said that if the Vols lost, he would take her to lunch.

She picked KSBar and Grill and the two made an appearance on KSR.

As part of the bet, Jacobs also agreed to make a donation to Shriner’s.  KSR and Hey Kentucky’s Matt Jones agreed to match the contribution.

Jacobs swung by the hospital to meet with patients and staff.
