Back in USWA days, Jacobs underwent a few character changes and during the holidays he adopted the "Christmas Creature" character.

"(Kevin Lawler) calls me later, and this is December, and he's got this idea for an evil Christmas character, the Christmas Creature," Jacobs said. "So my mom made me this costume. Kevin Lawler designed it, and my mom put it together — green mask, candy-cane striped sleeves, tinsel, tights and all. The costume even had flashing lights with a battery pack," Jacobs said.
