Jimmy Jacobs was fired by the WWE in October for posting a photo of himself with The Bullet Club while they were planning to invade Monday Night Raw.
Jacobs has since been working for other promotions, including Ring of Honor, Impact Wrestling and Combat Zone Wrestling, among others.
Though that one small mistake by Jacobs was enough to lose a dream job with the world's greatest wrestling promotion, he holds no regrets over the incident. During an interview with Wrestling Inc., Jacobs talked about why he did it, and why he doesn't regret posting the photo:
"I got a text from my buddy that said, 'Hey, are The Young Bucks at the arena?' I was like, 'Are they?' I went outside and I saw them, I was thrilled to see them...
Right after we caught up and right before we left we said let's take a picture together. We took a little picture and I put it up online, and what happened, happened. No regrets about that, not even a little bit."
Though Jacobs' tenure with the WWE lasted a mere two years, he was responsible for some of the biggest storylines. In fact, it was Jacobs who introduced the idea of The List of Jericho - which became one of the most popular WWE storylines and gimmicks in 2016-17. Chris Jericho reinvented himself by simply putting people he deemed as "stupid idiots" on a list, much to the joy of the WWE Universe.
Jacobs also told Wrestling Inc. that though he lost a great job with the WWE, he's having the most fun in his career right now, though he greatly enjoyed working for Vince McMahon's promotion.
Jacob most recently appeared for Combat Zone Wrestling at their Cage of Death show, where he would defeat Jimmy Havoc. It remains to be seen where Jacobs will go from here on out. But even though he's no longer employed by the WWE, Jacobs appears to be doing very well for himself.
