|July 26, 1999 Interview by Hartime|
BYWAClown: First thank you for your time JJJ.
JimmyJRef: no prob
BYWAClown: Ok first question, when was your professional debut ?
JimmyJRef: March 6 as a referee in Lakeshore Wrestling Organization and
May 1 wrestling in Holland, MI vs Freak Nasty Michael Stryker
BYWAClown: Who won that match?
BYWAClown: Oh. What has been your greatest match?
JimmyJRef: I havent had enough to have a greatest. My first win versus
Gavin Starr, that was a good match, but I haven't even begun to reach my
BYWAClown: Oh. What promotions have you worked for?
JimmyJRef: Lakeshore Wrestling Organization, Midwest Territorial
Wrestling, International Wrestling Organization, and Northern States
Wrestling Alliance with many more to come including DAWN and NWA of Michigan
BYWAClown: Have you held any titles?
BYWAClown: What is your perferred style of wrestling, technical,
submission, high-flying, hardcore etc.?
JimmyJRef: Certainly not hardcore. For a guy my size, I should work a
more high flying style, but I get off on technical wrestling. I could go an
entire match with just basics and love that match.
BYWAClown: What promotion would you rather work for, W.W.F. , W.C.W.,
or E.C.W. ?
JimmyJRef: ECW has the best wrestlers in the world and some of the
most talented guys I've ever seen. To be honest, I don't know if I would be
good enough to go with a lot of those guys. But I'd love to work in ECW. I
have no desire to work in the other two. WCW maybe, but I like the indy
cirrcut a lot.
BYWAClown: In H.C.P.W.A. your known as Humping Jimmy Jacobs, were in
the hell did that name come from ?
JimmyJRef: Kevin Harvey, ring announcer and the best damn ring
announcer I've ever heard. He came up with the name
BYWAClown: Oh. This next question is more on a personal level. What do
you think of the death of the late Owen Hart ?
JimmyJRef: That just really distressed me. I'm didn't know him, nor do
I claim to, but as a fan, I'll miss him a lot. He really brought some class
to the WWF. He was a great technician as well as an entertainer. From what
I've heard, he was a great guy too. It was an accedent and a sad one. Nobody
can be to blame. Why do bad things happen to good people? We'll never really
know, but we do know that a very bad thing happened to a very good person. But it makes me mad when backyarders that never knew him hold so-called
memorial cards. They never knew him and they have no business doing things
like that. That's disrespect.
BYWAClown: Ok. Did you have a inspiration to be a wrestler? And if so
what or who ?
JimmyJRef: Well, when I started, Mick Foley was. I saw how he would do
whatever it took to give the fans their money's worth and that was inspiring.
Now, the words of Lightning Mike Quackenbush help inspire me and get me
through this. "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
BYWAClown: Wow. What 1 person in the wrestling buiness today would you
like to take on the most?
JimmyJRef: I'd have to say Lightning Mike Quackenbush because he
started wrestling at the same age I did and I've kinda tryed to model myself
after him in a way. Also Shane Douglas. I'd like to work him too.
BYWAClown: What can we expect from JJJ or well HJJ in the future ?
JimmyJRef: PWI top 500 in 2000. You can also expect to see some great
matches and endless entertainment.
BYWAClown: Well HJJ I want to thank you for your time.
JimmyJRef: yeah sure. no problem
