Jimmy Jacobs has finally talked about his departure from the WWE.

It’s been well documented that Jacobs is no longer employed by WWE. The infamous ‘Bullet Club invasion’ of Raw a few weeks ago was cited as the possible ‘straw that broke the camel’s back.’

Jacobs departed the company two weeks ago, but it’s unknown if he was released or not. What was confirmed is that there was a lot of heat on him for posting an Instagram photo of himself with Bullet Club members during the “invasion” at the Raw TV event in Ontario, California.

Although WWE has yet to issue any statements regarding Jacobs’ status, it was noted that the sports entertainment company was much angrier with the ‘invasion’ and it possibly led to them sending a cease and desist order to the Young Bucks over their use of ‘Too Sweet’.

Several fans online have pointed out the hypocrisy of the situation as former WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and former WWE Champion AJ Styles have all appeared on the Being The Elite YouTube series in recent months.

Jacobs started his career in the professional wrestling business back in 1999. He is most known for his time in Ring of Honor (ROH) where he is a five-time World Tag Team Champion.

Jacobs made his first appearance for WWE in May 2005 when he won a match against Eddie Guerrero via disqualification on an episode of SmackDown. Later in the year, he unsuccessfully challenged Nunzio for the Cruiserweight Championship on Velocity. Fast forward nine years later, Jacobs appeared on the December 15, 2014, episode of Raw as a member of Adam Rose's Exotic Express, and appeared in the same role again that same week on SmackDown. Moving along to March 2015, it was reported that Jacobs was joining WWE's creative team as a writer.

Jacobs has finally opened up about the matter in an interview with Live Audio Wrestling. The former WWE creative writer stated, "It's nothing that I'm gonna get into, but I'll say this: no mistake was made," Jacobs said. "I am A-OK with the way that everything went down."
