If you're a World Wrestling Entertainment fan, "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs could be responsible for some of your favorite moments. 

The Michigan-born Jacobs had a decade-plus in the wrestling ring before he was hired as a WWE writer in 2015. His written segments included wrestlers Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens'surprise confrontation at the Festival of Friendship event. It was so popular that Mattel is immortalizing it in an "Epic Moments" playset for fans to relive.

He left WWE this past autumn, and headed back to the ring. On Thursday, December 7, he'll compete at Uptown VFW as part of an event put on by Minnesota's own F1rst Wrestling. It will be Jacobs' first match in the Twin Cities in over three years.

Go 95.3'sChaz Kangas spoke to Jacobs about writing for the WWE during the stretch of time that U.S. president Donald Trump – close friend of the company's CEO Vince McMahonwas elected.

He also described wrestling for the Insane Clown Posse's Gathering of the Juggalos, and recalled a sound malfunction in Minnesota. He ended up giving an impromptu concert of his own entrance music.
