Jimmy Jacobs is going into the Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame
Jimmy Jacobs has been announced as the third inductee in the 2023 class of the Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame. The ceremony will be held at the Millenium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, April 2.
Jacobs will be inducted into the Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame by Alex Shelley, a man he faced on numerous occasions on the indies. Their most recent match took place in Game Changer Wrestling in January 2022. Shelley picked up the win on that occasion.
Jacobs spent the majority of his in-ring career on the indies, with his most prominent runs coming in Ring of Honor between 2003 and 2015. He is a five-time ROH World Tag Team Champion, having held the belts with BJ Whitmer twice, Tyler Black (AKA Seth Rollins) twice, and Steve Corino once.
Jacobs also performed for the likes of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla and IWA Mid-South. After leaving Ring of Honor in 2015, Jacobs signed with WWE as a writer but he was fired in 2017 after taking a photo with members of Bullet Club during their mock invasion of Raw.
Jacobs is currently a backstage producer and member of the creative team in IMPACT Wrestling.
Already announced for the Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame class of 2023 is Christopher Daniels and Cheerleader Melissa. Jerry Lynn, Tracy Smothers, Ruckus, Dave Prazak, and LuFisto were inducted into the inaugural class in 2022.
