– Discussion On WWE Writer Recently Getting Fired
During a recent edition of “The Brand” podcast, Vince Russo, Glenn Gilbertti (WCW’s Disco Inferno) & Jeff Lane (co-host) discussed the recent firing of WWE writer Jimmy Jacobs. Below is their conversation:
Jeff: It was two episodes ago with the Bullet Club doing their invasion of Raw. Well, one of the WWE writers Jimmy Jacobs, who wrestled in Ring of Honor, he went outside and took a picture with The Young Bucks and he apparently got fired for doing this. He posted it on his Instagram. He put #BCinvasion #Raw #YoungBucks #BulletClub. So the rumor was that he got heat for this and got fired.
Well, today he put up a new shirt and it says unprofessional which leads me to believe he was told he was being unprofessional and got fired. So what are you guys’ thoughts on this?
Glenn: He was, absolutely was. If you’re the owner…. if you’re Vincent and you look at it, is that professional? That’s something you just don’t do.
I will tell you this. When DX invaded WCW, if the boys would have gone out there and taking pictures. Eric Bischoff would’ve probably fired them on the spot.
Those guys are doing a parody of your show, you’re going out there and endorsing it. That’s what happened. He could have suspended him. Firing…..That’s pretty rough. Suspending the guy could have been a course of action to let people know – “Hey, when you disrespect the company this is what can happen to you”.
Russo: Like Glenn said, maybe you just suspend the guy, but obviously bro he was invaluable to the freaking company. At some point these guys got to use their freakin’ heads. Act like a freakin’ grown up and an adult and you won’t get yourself in trouble.
