Jimmy Jacobs has found his groove both on-air and off-air for Impact Wrestling, but admitted recently that he also had discussions with Ring of Honor.
Despite the fact that he was fired from his job working in creative for WWE last after taking a selfie with several Bullet Club members, he said that the stable didn't make a play for him to join ROH, even though he did make a cameo in the company. I spoke with Jacobs recently, and he elaborated on his relationship with Bullet Club.
"Honestly, we had very little talk about that sort of stuff. They were super gracious. After I got fired from WWE, I think they felt a certain responsibility for it. I talked to Young Bucks particularly and I told them this whole thing has been a blessing. They've been very helpful to me as far as hooking me up with a t-shirt guy, designs, getting my foot back in the door of independent wrestling. As far as career moves, I was able to handle myself. They made no pushes whatsoever. I'm close with them, but we're not like best friends. They have their All-In show, if I'm on it, I'm on it. If I'm not, I wouldn't be surprised either. We're close, but we're not that close. They are friends of mine, but I'm not talking every career move with them," Jacobs told me.
Shortly after his ROH appearance, Jacobs went on to debut for Impact, where he's spent the past several months working as an on-screen character and a creative force.
