Question about rolling back a JIRA upgrade from version 6.1.6 back to 5.2.8

My Environment for JIRA:  

1. One JIRA server that is a VM (W2K8 R2 Standard) 64-Bit
2. The database for our JIRA environment saves it's data to a database. We use SQL Server 2008 R2 for it.
3. 15-20 JIRA users only in our environment.

I read that there are about 3 different approach to upgrading JIRA. I plan to upgrade using the rapid upgrade method which consist of doing an in place upgrade using the upgrade wizard. I've already tried upgrading in a test environment, and all is well. However, I did not incorporate live data to the testing environment. It was only to test if a bug will be fixed if we upgrade. Since I do trust our vCenter snapshot capabilities, I only plan to revert back to the previous snapshot in the event the upgrade fails, and the JIRA app is no longer functioning properly. If there is a need to rollback, would reverting back the VM (the JIRA server) to a previous snapshot sufficient enough, or would I also need to restore the database as well? Do anyone have any experience with the need to roll back this upgrade?

Performed the upgrade myself successfully, even though no one here posted any advice. Is this a site that I would pay for if no one responds?
