Jimmy Jacobs : biography

February 17, 1984 –

During mid-July 2009, it was revealed that Jacobs had left ROH. A video package was shown on Ring of Honor Wrestling, where Jacobs announced that he was leaving, and he later confirmed his departure in an interview on July 14.

S.C.U.M. (2011–present)

Jacobs returned to ROH on May 21, 2011, when he was revealed as Steve Corino’s sponsor. At the August 13 tapings of Ring of Honor Wrestling, Jacobs wrestled his first match for ROH in over two years, losing to Mike Bennett. After several months of trying to "purge" himself of evil, Jacobs hinted a heel turn at the 10th Anniversary Show in a No Disqualification match against Kevin Steen, but lost after freezing in shock when he hit Steen with his trademark spike. Later that month, at Showdown in the Sun, Jacobs fully turned heel by helping Steen beat El Generico in a Last Man Standing match on March 30, and beat Generico himself the next night in an impromptu match. On May 12, Jacobs and Steen were joined by Steve Corino to form the S.C.U.M. (Suffering, Chaos, Ugliness, and Mayhem) stable. On September 15 at Death Before Dishonor X: State of Emergency, Jacobs and Corino defeated Charlie Haas and Rhett Titus in the finals of a tournament to win the vacant ROH World Tag Team Championship. They lost the title to the Briscoe Brothers (Jay and Mark) on December 16 at Final Battle 2012: Doomsday in a three-way match, which also included the team of Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander. On June 23, 2013, S.C.U.M. was forced to disband, after being defeated by Team ROH in a Steel Cage Warfare match.
