Jimmy Jacobs Defends WWE Creative: "Writing A 3 Hour Wrestling TV Show Every Week Is Hard"

This past Monday, WWE Raw set another all-time viewership low with 2.19 million viewers. It was the second straight week viewership had sunk to a new low. Seth Rollins opened Raw by stating that the show "sucks" and cut a "shoot" style promo aimed at General Manager-elect Baron Corbin. 

Rollins was speaking for many fans on social media who have ripped Raw for putting on a poor show every week. The declining viewership numbers have only given fans more ammo to fire at WWE and their flagship show. Surprisingly, former WWE writer Jimmy Jacobs came to the defense of the company.

Responding to questions and comments, Jacobs defend his position in a series of follow-up tweets.

Jacobs currently works on the IMPACT Wrestling creative team.
