In a recent interview with the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Jimmy Jacobs discussed several topics, including departing his role with IMPACT Wrestling earlier this year and his decision to sign with All Elite Wrestling which includes roles on the AEW Dynamite, AEW Rampage and AEW Collision shows.
“AEW’s great, it’s a madhouse, I welcome the madness. Last year, I was living in rural Georgia, I bought about seven acres out in the middle of nowhere, I was working for IMPACT Wrestling just a couple of weekends a month and I was working on a farm a couple of days a week, I was living that life and I was like, hmm, this is a little too mellow for me, I need to get thrown in the blender and whirl around the chaos, and apparently that’s where I’m best adapted for, so AEW is my home right now.
As for how I got here, Bryan Danielson called me and said, hey we’re starting a second show and we need someone in the chaos. Well, I’m great in the chaos man. They needed someone who was going to be there at all the shows, someone who has the aptitude that I have, and there’s other people that have the aptitude that I have and can do what I do, I’m not particularly special, but also I have no life, so it was just, can you be on the road whenever.”
