Jimmy Jacobs Reportedly Released from WWE Over Bullet Club Photo
Wednesday, October 11, 2017
Jimmy Jacobs was a well-respected wrestler on the independent scene for several years. Jacobs captured the ROH World Tag Team Championship on five different occasions. He worked in promotions such as Ring of Honor before he joined WWE back in 2015. He was brought into WWE as a creative writer, and he stayed in that position until recently. Jacobs was believed to be respected by most of the WWE locker room, and he is credited for devising concepts such as Chris Jericho's "List of Jericho." It appears that something may have led to Jacobs moving away from the company, because it has now been reported that Jacobs no longer works with WWE.
It was reported earlier today by Pro Wrestling Sheet that Jimmy Jacobs is now no longer part of WWE in any way, shape, or form. As noted, he had been working as a writer ever since he joined the company back in 2015. It is still unclear whether he walked out on his own or if he was released from the promotion, but it appears that Jacobs may have been pressured into leaving. The belief is that he had major heat after he posted a photo of himself with The Bullet Club when they invaded Monday Night Raw recently. Jimmy Jacobs is believed to have left the company last week, and it very well could have been because of this photo with the popular faction.
The recent invasion by the Bullet Club during a Monday Night Raw taping gained a ton of attention, and the belief was that those in WWE (especially Vince McMahon) were very furious about it at the time, and it is also believed that this caused WWE to send a cease and desist letter to The Young Bucks. No one in WWE has commented on the matter yet, but numerous other wrestling news reporters, such as Dave Meltzer, have confirmed Pro Wrestling Sheet's report to be accurate. No word on if Jimmy Jacobs plans to resume wrestling elsewhere, but at only 33 years of age, he definitely could end up just about anywhere if he chooses.
