More transcripts from a recent interview with Jimmy Jacobs has surfaced.
It’s well known by now that Jacobs is no longer employed by WWE. The infamous ‘Bullet Club invasion’ of Raw a month 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.
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’.
Jacobs has finally opened up about the matter in an interview with Live Audio Wrestling.
“I’m really not sweating much of any of it. I’m not sweating any of it. The WWE is not a final destination for anybody. The living, breathing, moving organism machine is a place where you drop by; had a great 2 ½ years, did some pretty fun stuff, but I’m excited to do other things in my life now.”
“Six months ago was a crazy time. If you asked me 2 ½ years ago when I started with WWE, I would have said absolutely told you final destination, for sure. Six months ago, no.”
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.
“I had a great time working for WWE, but a lot of things happened in my life, and working there was a cool experience but WWE is great, but it’s not the end all, be all in the world.
You dedicate eighteen years of your life to something thinking that WWE is the mecca of something; in our business it is the top draw, that is where the money is made and most fans see.”
“Guys would leave WWE or quit WWE voluntarily I used to think; what are you doing? There’s nothing else out there, WWE is it; but then when you work there you realize that there is other things out there, and I grew an appreciation for my time on the independence for the guys that go out there as independent wrestlers and what they are doing, and it really gave me a perspective for my time in the business, and a perspective for my time in life.”
“I didn’t sense it, but i was ready to be me again regardless of circumstance. If they weren’t going to fire me I was going to walk in there with my ears pierced, with my hair; there’s a certain way things are done there.
But it’s nice to have my freedom back by painting my fingernails, piercing my ears; it’s like the Zombie coming out of the grave again. Jimmy Jacobs is back from the dead.”
