In late 2014 he was brought into WWE as an enhancement talent again, but he called Daniel Bryan and Joey Mercury prior to that date and said that he wanted to become a writer in WWE, not a wrestler. When he showed up to the building that day Bryan and Mercury brought him to the head of the writing team and put in a great word for him, and he began the process of applying to become a writer.
As part of his application, he had to fantasy book an entire buildup to WrestleMania’s main event in 2015, which was Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. His booking included Lesnar attacking Dean Ambrose prior to WrestleMania, infuriating Reigns who’s good friends with Ambrose.
At WrestleMania, Ambrose would limp to the ring to get his revenge on Lesnar and then Seth Rollins would also rush the ring, cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Lesnar and becoming WWE Champion. WrestleMania would go off air with all three members of The Shield in the ring and fans wondering if they’re back together or not. Apparently WWE officials liked his application as he was hired shortly thereafter.
Jericho asks Jacobs if he felt like he may have overstepped his boundaries in WWE early on. Jacobs says that he was very carefree when he started there first, before he knew that he was supposed to be scared of and intimidated by Vince McMahon. Soon enough he came to understand that McMahon’s presence is something that all the writers are accustomed to being intimidated by.
