• Former WWE Writer Jimmy Jacobs Opens Up About Unhealthy Work Environment In WWE Due To Vince McMahon

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, former WWE writer Jimmy Jacobs talked about unhealthy work environment backstage in WWE due to “crazy man” Vince McMahon.

Below is what Jacobs said:

“It was just not a healthy work environment for me. I don’t want to speak for them, but people in WWE generally it doesn’t seem like a work environment conducive to people’s like people feeling good, enjoying themselves. It breeds a lot of insecurity, a lot of discontentment…a lot, yeah.

A lot of it’s cool, a lot of WWE is really fun, except for there’s like this one black cloud that hangs over the entire place and that’s the crazy man. It just creates this environment where people aren’t trying to do their best.

They’re not trying to come up with the best segment, or have the best match, or do the most creative thing, or do what’s best for the fans. It’s just like, ‘what’s the crazy man not going to yell at me about?’

That’s it man. That ain’t no way to run that place. So, he can bring in Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff and you know, whoever he wants — Bill Watts and whatever bookers from the past…he could move all the pieces around, but as long as ‘this piece’ is on the board the game’s gonna get played the same, man.”
