WWE producer gone due to Bullet Club photo? Submitted by Aaron Rift on 10/11/2017 at 06:35 PM
According to Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet.com, WWE writer/producer Jimmy Jacobs is no longer working with the company.
The incident that led to his departure apparently had something to do with an Instagram photo Jacobs uploaded. When the Bullet Club showed up outside the arena prior to WWE RAW in Ontario, CA, Jacobs had taken a photo of himself with the group and got "major heat" for this. WWE has not commented on the matter.
Last year in an interview with The LAW, Chris Jericho gave Jacobs credit for coming up with the "List of Jericho" concept:
"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 Iíve got this idea of the List of Jericho and you put a couple names on it. Oh yeah, thatís a great idea and we did it."
