BTW, anyone else heard the rumor that Jimmy Jacobs of all people has been offered a WWE development deal?

Good. Now ROH can finally push him to the moon.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Jacobs in WWE could be great. I've always thought he was the more talented of AOTF. Although like stated, it was just papers for stuff he'd previously done, not a contract. I think it's too late for Jacobs, sadly.

I bought Resistance Pro: Sad Wings Of Destiny, and Acid Flashback: Best of Trent Acid, on eBay. $30 in total.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

He is only 26 years old. I'd wager to say he has a good bit of time left to be signed. Age shouldn't play a factor here. Reliability should.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Age-wise it wouldn't be because he just turned 28 (seems like I've been watching him forever); I think size and how they would handle him would be drawbacks more then that.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Wait...Jacobs is only 28. Well holy jeeze I'd think for as long as it seems he has been on the scene he'd be at least 30-32. Craziness. Would much rather ROH actually push him as a main event player than him go to WWE. Otherwise we'd be Jacobs-less for a bit and the world would be a little darker.

ACH being signed by ROH I can only see being a good thing for them. Taven I like as part of the reboot of HoT so I don't mind him having gone over ACH but now that the man is all signed up I don't see anything slowing him down.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

In WWE, I wouldn't even try using him as a wrestler.

I've always thought Jacobs could be an excellent heel manager in WWE - plus, he can still take bumps in that role.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Do ROH contracts still stop guys from appearing on other Indy shows?

Jacobs deserves a WWE deal more than anyone else left on the Indy scene and he'd be a great fit there if they had faith in him. You watch him these days and you can just tell he's come to the end of his life span as an Indy wrestler. Kinda going through the motions until the next big stage of his life. Thankfully that's the stage that every top Indy name was at before they left for WWE or TNA.
