Jimmy Jacobs, who is currently working with Impact Wrestling had been signed to WWE from 2015 till 2017 when he was released from the company.
The alleged reason for him being fired was his photo with NJPW Superstars which was posted on Instagram. Jacobs is a former wrestler but worked as a writer for WWE, and is even credited for being the brains behind ‘The List of Jericho.’
In a recent interview with Hannibal TV, Jacobs explained why everyone is scared of Vince McMahon.
A month after I was there, he wanted to fire one of the writers for not knocking on his door, his office door, before he came in. Vince is like, ‘Yeah, come back with this promo,’ and he came back with the promo without knocking on the door and Vince was like, ‘What the hell!’ and he wanted to fire him.
It was a whole thing. I was like, ‘Wow, that’s all it takes.’ You’re always reminded, you’re one weird interaction away with Vince from being fired, and so that becomes like your mentality there.
Vince McMahon is known to be quirky person, and that’s why it’s not surprising that the staff is afraid of him.
