Jimmy Jacobs expresses gratitude for his time with IMPACT Wrestling.
Jacobs had worked for WWE before joining IMPACT in November 2017 and becoming the company’s creative director. Jacobs was spotted backstage at the June 14 edition of AEW Dynamite, and it was later announced that he had joined the company’s creative team.
He reflected on his time with IMPACT Wrestling in an Instagram post, expressing thanks for the experience. He remarked that he would remember his time there fondly and that he is excited to witness the magic they will create in the future.
“Nothing I write here can adequately capture my feelings about my time with IMPACT Wrestling. I’m beyond grateful for the playground I got to create in and the playmates I got to create with. From the first day I arrived at IMPACT in November of 2017, I was blessed to collaborate with a cast of dedicated and bright human beings in an effort to share our passion with the world. It was refreshing to be surrounded by people who not only tolerated my idiosyncrasies, but more often than not, embraced them. I’m proud to be a part the vision we all created and of the progress that the company as a whole has made throughout that time. I will always have love in my heart for that entire crew, roles big and small, as when you’re in the trenches making TV every single week, you really appreciate the fact that it takes the effort of each and every person to make the cogs in the machine go round. I will always cherish my time with the special group of people at IMPACT Wrestling, and I look forward to seeing the magic they make in the future.”
AEW reportedly hired Kevin Matthews in a backstage role in addition to Jacobs.
