Jimmy Jacobs is an IMPACT Wrestling Producer and creative team member. he is also a former Ring Of Honor Tag Team Champion and WWE writer. In short, Jimmy Jacobs is somebody who knows the ins and outs of wrestling as good as anybody available for hire.
While speaking to 411Mania, Jimmy spoke about the IMPACT Wrestling move to AXS. Jimmy spoke about the move being a relief to the whole roster and crew as they will now have more eyes on them, "I think, as a company as a whole. Because the big issue over the last year, I don’t it had to do with the quality of the work or anything like that," he began. "It’s like, we were putting on a good show, with good stories, and good wrestlers, all that sort of stuff. But nobody’s seeing it. If a tree falls in the forest, man. And so having a platform where more eyeballs can be on our product is what I think everyone is looking for."
Jimmy also revealed his desire to do more creatively unique wrestling shows with the backing of the AXS TV facilities and production, "I hope so, man. It’s a matter of, like I said, the final calls are not mine. I would love to do Undead Realm Championship Wrestling, you know. Do it every day, once a week or once a month. We’re doing some fun things, we’re doing a retro show on October 27th, and it’ll be on — I think on our TV or something at some point. But basically an ’80s throwback show, which I think is gonna be super-fun."
Jimmy feels that this will give IMPACT a creative edge over ROH, NXT, and AEW in this crowded 2019 wrestling space, "I think we’re gonna do some different things like that. And we get to do those things, and WWE’s not going to and AEW’s not going to, and Ring of Honor’s not going to. And NXT sure as hell ain’t going to do anything that like, takes a wink at wrestling or goes beyond the squared circle, or beyond, you know, something crazy. Something silly.”
Before they can hit AXS TV, the IMPACT Wrestling crew will present Bound for Glory on Sunday, October 20, 2019.
