At his watch party, Jacobs, a Republican, claimed his victory while reminding his constituents that when he first announced his bid for mayor, he was greeted with “pretty resounding laughter” from some politicians.

“But this professional wrestler got into a no-holds-barred, last-man-standing match, and when the bell rung, he was victorious, We were victorious.”

The former champ, who spent roughly 20 years in professional wrestling and won several world titles, ran a campaign focused on keeping taxes low, while prioritizing quality education, job creation, and improved infrastructure.
