Chris Jericho says Jimmy Jacobs used risky judgment in posting a selfie of himself with The Bullet Club, which led to him being fired by WWE.

“Jimmy’s good, and if I was there I would’ve tried to help him out, but it’s not the smartest of moves,” Jericho told Robert Pasbani of “If I work at McDonalds and post a picture of me hanging out with guys from Wendy’s and hashtag ‘Wendy’s is great,’ McDonalds might not be too happy about it.”

Jericho just finished a crazy 24 hour stretch of three concerts in three time zones, just a few hours before ROH’s Global Wars PPV and before Jacobs made a surprise appearance on the event.

“I think Jimmy’s a smart guy and maybe wouldn’t surprise me if he knew something was going to happen,” Jericho said. “Maybe he was getting sick of it, I don’t know. I just know as soon as I saw that picture, I was just like ‘ooof,’ with the hashtag ‘#BCInvasion,’ you can’t do that man. I mean, you can’t. Was it a fireable offense? Well, it’s not my decision; obviously Vince thought it was, which tells me there was probably some other stuff going on and that was the final straw.”

Jericho praised Jacobs for their collaboration on his creative work on air in 2016. “And I will say this, last year, 2016, Jimmy Jacobs was my co-writer on all of it,” he said. “All of it! And the weeks he wasn’t there I was like ‘Ah f—, I don’t like this, I want Jimmy.’ So he’s very talented, and he really got me. I worked with him a few times and I went to [head writer] Dave Kapoor, I want Scoville, which is his real name, Chris Scoville, on every Jericho promo. No one else. Because that’s how much I trusted his talent, his instincts.”
