Jimmy Jacobs explains how he got his WWE job

During his long career in wrestling, Jimmy Jacobs fought both in WWE and in the independent circuit. He is signed to Impact Wrestling as a wrestler and producer, and is known for his 12-year career in Ring of Honor (ROH), where he is a five-time World Tag Team Champion.

He has also worked for WWE as a writer. Recently interviewed on Booker T's Heated Conversations podcast, he explained how he got his WWE job: “I was working on the independent level for a long time, ten years for Ring of Honor.

So I’ve wrestled all the guys that are there now, your Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins and I were a tag team for years, and Dean Ambrose, and Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, everybody. And my career, it pretty much plateaued. And I’m not the best athlete anyway, my in-ring game was never my strong suit.

It was my promos. It was the creativity. So I had started just on the independent level, that’s what I did. And it dawned on me one day, like, my time here in this business is not about what happens here in the ring, it’s gonna be about the creativity."

On November 5, 2017, Jacobs made his Impact Wrestling debut at Bound for Glory. Then, he joined the promotion as an on-air wrestler and backstage producer. He became the manager of Kongo Kong.
