WWE News: Jimmy Jacobs is returning to CZW with a new nickname
Less than two weeks after his WWE release, Jimmy Jacobs' return to pro wrestling has been announced.
What's the story?
Fresh from his WWE release, it has been confirmed that Jimmy Jacobs will be returning to Combat Zone Wrestling. Jacobs, now using 'Unprofessional' as his nickname, will return to the company at CZW Night of Infamy on November 11.
In case you didn't know...
Just two weeks ago, former ROH and CZW legend Jimmy Jacobs was an integral part of the WWE creative machine. Jacobs had been working for WWE as a writer since 2015, and his fingerprints were all over a lot of the promotion's best work over the last couple of years.
Jacobs was released on October 11 however, after he posted a photo on his Instagram of him posing with Bullet Club members. The photo was taken during Bullet Club's 'invasion' of RAW, and was deemed unprofessional.
Jacobs returned to ROH on the final night of Global Wars, taking another 'selfie' with Bullet Club.
The heart of the matter
Whilst it is unclear whether he will compete, CZW has confirmed that Jimmy Jacobs will be returning to the company in some form in November. Jacobs will be a part of CZW Night of Infamy, which takes place on November 11 in New Jersey, USA.
The show will be headlined by Shane Strickland's defence of the CZW World Heavyweight Championship against Joe Gacy.
It has also been confirmed that Jacobs will be using 'Unprofessional' as a nickname moving forward. This is an obvious nod to the circumstances that saw him released from WWE. The nickname is sure to create a lot of conversation in and around the wrestling world.
Jacobs' return to CZW was confirmed in a tweet by the promotion, which can be seen below.
CZW Night of Infamy takes place on November 11, and more will surely be revealed regarding Jacobs' involvement over the coming weeks. As of right now, the Zombie Princess is merely confirmed to appear at the event.
A lot has been written regarding Jacobs and his recent release from WWE, with commentators split down the middle. Some believe WWE was right, others believe they overreacted.
Whichever side of the fence you sit on, it is important to remember that Jimmy Jacobs is in the middle of it all.
Jacobs was always going to fall on his feet so to speak, and it is great to see him finding work so soon after being released. 'Unprofessional' isn't a great nickname, but it does make sense in the current circumstances.
