Jacobs fashion choices also seemed to garner him some heat with McMahon, who seemed to pick on him for basically everything including the way he dressed, walked and even the way he stood still. Jericho informs that McMahon’s jokes often incite a gang mentality backstage as everyone loves to laugh at the bosses jokes and suddenly you’re outnumbered.
Jericho also agrees that certain fashion styles are not always approved of by McMahon, and McMahon was particularly turned off by Jericho’s decision to start wearing a scarf during his most recent WWE run.
Jacobs began working exclusively with Jericho during his most recent run. Jericho demanded that he wanted to work solely with Jacobs after discovering that Jacobs was a very good writer and the two men went on to develop the Kevin Owens/Chris Jericho storyline, which they’re both very proud of.
Jacobs says that writing for WWE is a thankless job because if things are good the credit goes to the performers, but if things go bad it’s the writers’ fault. He only recalls receiving one compliment from Vince McMahon and that came when he was writing the ‘Rose Bush’ TMZ-like news segments for Adam Rose.
Jacobs informs that McMahon was very excited about 205 Live initially but the show has never really picked up steam. He thinks that show is in a tough position, going on late after 2 hours of Smackdown without the presence of any major stars on the roster. He also points out that guys like Seth Rollins are working that in-ring style at the main event level better than the 205 Live guys are, so it’s a tough sell for fans.
