Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Jimmy Jacobs is no longer working at WWE and the final straw seems to have been a picture he recently took with Bullet Club outside of Raw.

 

Sources say the backstage producer made his exit last week, but we’ve been unable to confirm if he was released or not. We are told, however, that there was major heat on Jimmy for posting an Instagram picture of himself meeting with BC while they filmed Being the Elite last month (seen below).

As we previously reported, WWE officials were much angrier than anybody expected after Bullet Club’s “invasion” and it lead to them sending The Young Bucks a legal letter.

A rep for WWE had no comment.

Jimmy Jacobs is the man who came up with the idea of the list of jericho

Nah he said it on his podcast a couple of months ago, Vince wanted the list to become a character in it's own right - but Jericho molded the idea into what we got. Possibly Jacobs helped somwhere, but Jericho never said about him specifically.

Oh, I thought you were saying Jericho said Vince was the one who had Jacobs fired. I think I heard/read that Jacobs was the one who came up with the idea for the list and after that Vince wanted it to become a character, or whatever.

 

From Jericho:

So what happened was the gift of Jericho and I wish I could take credit for saying I came up with it but Jimmy Jacobs, who has become a writer in WWE, his name is Chris Scobille but his wrestler name is Jimmy Jacobs, no stranger to anybody who is a fan of Ring of Honor or any of those big independent companies. He said I’ve got this idea of the List of Jericho and you put a couple names on it. Oh yeah, that’s a great idea and we did it.

Basically it was a collaborative effort of Jericho, Jacobs and Vince. Jacobs came up with the name for it. Jericho added his OWN promos and content to the gimmick as usual. Vince approved it.

Have a feeling that they will turn around and realize they made a mistake by firing him.

Okay so AJ Styles, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn should all be fired because they appeared in a Young Bucks video too right? Im saying it doesnt look good on WWE and they tend to think better of it later sometimes. They fired Daniel Bryan and Emma once upon a time then they got their jobs back a short time after.

Emma was never actually fired, was she? I thought she was just suspended then sent to NXT

I just want to point out if I was a backstage producer I wouldnt have participated in that shit. Thats just me. But people have friends in different companies and that shouldnt be punishable. But taking a pic with your friends in the mist of them trying to get attention outside of the arena or whatever...idk.

I'm actually really surprised that WWE are still a bunch of salty bitches about the competition. I thought they were coming around to the idea that crossovers were good for everyone involved.

I mean its not a matter of being salty. The cease and desist was sent for a business reason. Does it suck the fun away? For sure. But I mean its a trademark or whatever, sooo.

That's just hilarious, tbh. You really think that the Bullet Club "too-sweeting" was hurting WWE in any way? Besides that, the concept of too-sweeting started with the cliq back in the day, and was their own thing...it really wasn't even a WWE concept. It was just a thing that a few good brothers did, which is why it made the jump to Japan. If anything, WWE didn't give a shit about the hand motion or the phrase until they stole Gallows and Anderson from NJPW and started using their blatantly stolen "club" name. So, yeah...it's just being salty. There's no other word for it. Made even more obvious by the fact that they made no claims on the hand sign or phrase until the invasion happened.
