Very cool to see Jakob as one of the newest guys to enter the game! This guy is a classic, throwback heel. Loud, obnoxious, and brazen but a total wimp who you want to see get his butt kicked!
I love his art! Great job by Werner knocking another one out of the park! I'm looking forward to seeing who everyone puts Jakob against first. So many great storyline possibilities with a colorful character like this!
Can't wait to get Jakob in my fed. I have a lot of plans for him already!
I'm going to stick Jakob with Donst and run them at the tag belts, but I'm also going to stick Jakob in there vs. the very best singles guys like Quack, Kingston, UMB and Danielson. Kind of like breaking him in. Plan to do the same thing w Kobald when I get back to my fed.
BTW bonus prize for the first person to recognize the hidden tribute to COTG history in the Jakob art...
So, is it just me or is Jakob in the same pose as the original Vanity card.
Nice work guys. Great eyes. You are both correct. Just something we decided to do during production. We talked about how he was similar to Vanity in character, then decided to just go w it. I think Werner (as usual) destroyed it. Jakob loves it, obviously. For those that don't know he's been using it as his Twitter pic for a few weeks now.
CHIKARA + WERNER = AMAZING!!!! I see Jakob being a cult favorite, like Vanity (as Troy said). You don't have to have incredible stats to be a star in COTG. Can't wait....... Wish I could go to Chi-town but will have to wait on Wally the slowass postman. Oh well.
