Jimmy Jacobs on His Decision to Join Impact, Restrictions in WWE, Impact's Pre-Taped Shows

Current Impact Wrestling star and former WWE Creative writer Jimmy Jacobs recently spoke to The Mirror in the U.K.

His decision to sign with Impact after leaving WWE:

“I absolutely did have offers from others. I talked to ROH about going back there but I have been there for a lot of years.

“I wanted to do something new, I had a conversation with Scott D’Amore and Sonjay Dutt on the phone about different things at Impact and it just seemed like a nice fit. So my first time in Ottawa [at Bound for Glory]was a test run to see how the fit was.

“We are in a rebuilding phase and they needed somebody who could wear a lot of hats and do a lot of different things and I had experience in all those things.

“It was a nice week in Ottawa and solidified that Impact was the direction that I wanted to go.

“I also felt valued and that might seem like a small thing, but it was a big deal. I felt valued and not just by the boys and locker room.”

Feeling restricted in WWE:

“I felt so restricted for two and a half years [in WWE]and so coming in now with the freedom to grow where I want to and do what I am best suited for…

“I feel like that wasn’t an opportunity I had at the last company I worked for.”

Impact Wrestling taping their programs weeks in advance:

“One of advantages we have here is that we are taping a lot of weeks of TV in a row. What’s cool about that is that we can tell a story long term and in WWE there is not a lot of that.

“Whilst it’s similar in some ways, it’s nice that we can tell long term stories. And we have more freedom to try new things and experiment.

“It’s a time to try something that may fail. Lot of times in WWE you tread water to get to the next week.

“I feel like at Impact we can do a little more. But it’s still crazy busy. The last tapings we did in January was like nothing I have done in my life.”
