Jimmy Jacobs tells another Vince McMahon story.
Former 5-time ROH World Tag Team Champion Jimmy Jacobs has worn many hats in the wrestling business. Jimmy still wrestles on the independent scene and is a former WWE creative writer and current IMPACT Wrestling writer. Jacobs stepped up on social media last week to have a conversation with wrestling fans about how difficult it is to write television for WWE every week when WWE's flagship show RAW was being heavily criticized because of the lack of creativity that viewers feel the show is lacking.
Along with working in WWE comes interactions with the head honcho Vince McMahon and Jacobs has shared a few stories about the interactions he's had with Vince and at Starrcast during 'All In' weekend, Jacobs sat down with Colt Cabana for a live 'Art Of Wrestling' show and spoke about the rumors of Vince McMahon hating when other people sneeze around him.
“The rumor was always that Vince McMahon hates it when people sneeze and that’s just like the rumor. You don’t know. You hear these things about Vince but you don’t know if it’s true or not, and as time goes on - its been a few months - nobody had sneezed in front of him and finally, Vince is about here, and Triple H is about here [pointing to opposite ends of the stage] and Triple H sneezes, and Vince just goes, ‘Oh God’ and then he, like puts up his invisible shield." Jacobs laughs. "Fast forward like a year and a half later, and look, there’s been times I was in a room - like a small room with Vince and I’d stuff a sneeze. Fast forward a year and a half later, and we’re in a production meeting. I’m sitting next to Adam Pearce and Vince is up at the front table, and I’m trying to stuff the sneeze but it comes out and Vince goes, ‘Oh God, Adam, you should put up your shield'."
