Jericho first speaks about Jacobs posting the picture:
“Jimmy’s good and if I was there I would’ve tried to help him out, but it’s not the smartest of moves. If I work at McDonalds and post a picture of me hanging out with guys from Wendy’s and hashtag ‘Wendy’s is great,’ McDonalds might not be too happy about it.”
“I think Jimmy’s a smart guy and maybe wouldn’t surprise me if he knew something was going to happen. Maybe he was getting sick of it, I don’t know. I just know as soon as I saw that picture, I was just like ‘ooof,’ with the hashtag ‘#BCInvasion,’ you can’t do that man. I mean, you can’t. Was it a fireable offense? Well, it’s not my decision, obviously Vince thought it was, which tells me there was probably some other stuff going on and that was the final straw.”
Jericho explains he wanted to work exclusively with Jacobs, who created the idea for ‘The List’ that fans loved so much:
“And I will say this, last year, 2016, Jimmy Jacobs was my co-writer on all of it. All of it! And the weeks he wasn’t there I was like ‘Ah f–k, I don’t like this, I want Jimmy.’ So he’s very talented, and he really got me. I worked with him a few times and I went to [head writer] Dave Kapoor, ‘I want Scoville, which is his real name, Chris Scoville, on every Jericho promo. No one else.’ Because that’s how much I trusted his talent, his instincts.”
Just because it is hilarious to remember, we highly suggest you watch the following video where Jericho unveils ‘The List’ back in September of last year.
