In an interview with Live Audio Wrestling, former WWE creative team member Jimmy Jacobs (Chris Scoville) commented on several topics, including his experience being part of the company’s creative process.

“I had a very spiritual experience. I had a spiritual experience and decided that being creative was where I was meant to end up, so in that level in my career, I was ready to go and work behind the scenes. That was all well and good for the first six months that I was there, but then one day I am producing a backstage Chris Jericho / Shane McMahon I believe, and we were just getting the cameras ready, and camera testing the shots. I stood in for Chris Jericho for like a second, just to see how everything would look, I stood in for him, and then Shane came in and we started doing this promo to see how it was going to look, and then we replay it on the screen.

I then see how I looked on the monitor, and then I was like, oh wow, I look good on that monitor don’t I? That was like the first seed where I thought, oh man, wouldn’t it be nice? There was moments like that. It wasn’t like an overwhelming, driving force of my two and a half years there, but there was certain moments where I was working on promos with guys where I would tell them to do a promo a certain way, and I would show them, I would get to the point where I would say, just let me go out there and cut a promo. There was moments like that, there were times where it was bitter sweet. There were great times there too, but I’m good now, I had my fill.”
