November 19, 1999 by Michigan Wrestling Online
Wrestler's name: Jumpin Jimmy Jacobs
How long have you been a pro wrestler?
I've been refereeing since March of 99 and wrestling since May of 99.
Who where you trained by?
Who was your first opponent in the ring?
Freak Nasty Michael Stryker
Who has been your toughest match throughout your career?
versus the Blitzkrieg Kid. We wrestled each other to a 15 mintue time limit
Who is your favorite wrestler?
What or who do you look up to for motivation?
First, I look to God. I also look to my friends to help me out.
Have you ever been in a hardcore match. If yes what was the match?
Never have, and I never want to :)
If you could wrestle for any of the big three promotions who would you wrestle for?
What titles have you held in Michigan?
What has been a defining moment in your career?
I have a few defining moments. Refereeing a match with Superfly Jimmy Snuka
was pretty damn sweet. Another time was when I slipped off my pogo stick
and took a nice back bump on the cement. Another was as a referee- I
bodyslammed a guy named Jumpin Jerry Fox, helping to cost him the match.
That'll teach him to use the name "Jumpin" again. lol
What independent wrestling orginizations have you wrestled for in
Lakeshore Wrestling Organization, International Wrestling Organization, New
Options Wrestling, Midwest Territorial Wrestling, Northern States Wrestling
Alliance, Detroit Area Wrestling Network, NWA of Michigan, and Thunder
What advise would you give to someone trying to make it in pro wrestling today?
The words of Lightning Mike Quackenbush, "Everyone is going to tell you that
you can't do it. Put that out of your head immediately; don't dwell on it,
don't even give it a second thought. You are only limited by yourself. Be
persistent, and be true to your dream."
If you could wrestle anyone in the world today who would it be and in what
kind of match?
Probably Shane Douglas or Dean Malenko. I wouldnt want to wreslte either
one of them right now because I feel I'm too inexperienced and might limit
them too much. Not that I think I'm a bad wrestler, but I would rather
wrestle one of them in a few years when I have more in ring experience.
What do you like most about the Michigan Wrestling Insider?
Do you have any additional comments?
Check out my site http://www.angelfire.com/mi2/jimmyjacobs Be nice because
mean people suck. Don't complain about Michigan Indys. Look for the good
in them, not the bad. Finally... dont dream it, be it. It's not enough to
want something. You have to f'n do it.
