Like any medium, professional wrestling is a form of expression. Directly and indirectly, everything you see in art affects the way you think, the way you act, and the way you feel. Pro wrestling is no exception.

There are more of us out there than any of you can even begin to comprehend. You can use population figures and psychoanalysis statistics to try and calculate a bullshit number accounting for how many people in the world are dissatisfied with their lives, but the fact remains, none of you have ever seen an army of dissidents quite like this.

Somewhere in each of us there exists a desire for truth. And during the normal course of life things get in the way. Ideals become warped and ethics lose their standing. Murder and rape and poverty are all deeply regrettable acts, but the real tragedy of life is the loss of hope that enables those crimes. Throw in dishonesty, prejudice, cowardice, and disenchantment and you have yourself a recipe for a self-righteous society—a social order begging for direction…

This revolution is not for the faint of heart. We never promised you peace, we promised you answers. And like any good parent, we must withhold some things until you’re able to understand them. This is a re-maturation for those who have lost their way, got caught up, or for those who simply gave up and followed the beaten path. And if you’re in, welcome, but if you’re out then get in or be trampled. There is no easier way to tell you than either you are with us or you are against us. One way or another though, this Age will claim every single man, woman, and child living in this country. Ring of Honor? Ha; a microcosm of the bigger picture, and merely our platform for educating large quantities of people at a time—a large number of people who we think might feel the same as we do about life, about love, and about falling apart.

The Age of the Fall is no longer a choice. It’s here. It’s now. It’s me. And it’s you.

We hear you.

This isn't about wrestling.
It's about not fading away. Not being categorised. It's about not allowing some asshole at the front of an assembly line to stamp a label on your forehead and then move along leaving you stranded, forever branded by societies unreasonable expectations.

Every day now I wake up and wonder why my life makes a difference. What I can do that's different. How I can allow my individuality and the uniqueness that I have felt tearing at my insides for 28 years, begging to come out of it's cage, how I can let that, my own life force shine through and live a life I can be proud of.

Every time I read the truth you offer I become more convinced that one of those difference I can make is to spread the world.

I wont force anything on anyone, that's the mistake that anarchism made. But I want to offer people an opportunity to fulfill their potential.

I want to look at people and realise what makes them an individual, what scares them, what makes them cry, what makes them laugh, what makes them want to sing, but most of all what makes them them.

If each day I can treat the people I meet like they're unique then your revolution has already succeeded, and I'll keep spreading the word.

What ROH and The Briscoes and everyone else that is trying to stand in the way of the Age of the Fall don't realise, and maybe never will, is that this isn't about them. It was never personal, this isn't about The Briscoes, The Vulture Squad, or even ROH management. This is about making an example, standing up and being heard for the good of the world. If people stand in the way, so be it, I will be part of the army massing behind you pushing and pushing forward till they fall down.

The world has a huge scar across it's middle,
the Age of the Fall can't heal that, but it can start teaching people how to not let it happen again.

To the non believers,
first the revolution must take place in your mind.

u tell us we shouldnt act like sheeps...but....wouldn't following u and doing what u say make us 'sheeps'?

Same old shit. There's only one Raven, and that one is none of you. Try to create something new instead of recreating The Nest.

Can Age of the Fall get me into the Vegas show? If so, I'm totally on board.

justinjhouston said...

Age of the Fall, eh? That's a fitting name: you'll be has-beens by winter. Meh, I'll still enjoy you until then. Enjoy Halloween aka The Only Day Emo Kids Feel Normal. Cheerio, oh bearded one! Side bar...your finisher, the "Small Package Driver"...that's not, like...it's just a name, right? Not a, you know...estimate.

No wonder you're angry.

The Age of the Fall is among us. How can I become apart of this unstoppable movement

"Quote the Tyler Black ... NEVERMORE" Come on guys, you need to put away the ECW tapes and come up with a new gimmick.

Jus108t5 said...

I don't think this can be categorized as another Raven gimmick.

Raven was a social outcast who was out for his own personal gain.

The Age Of The Fall is more than a gimmick, it's an awakening.

Trends, fads, pop culture and the way society dictates how most people think and live is flawed.

I support The Age Of The Fall and I'm on board.

I just love how when anyone starts to use big words and talks about a revolution, everyone automatically goes back to Raven or "The Nest." I'm sorry to tell you this, but people have been depressed, suicidal, and purely fed up with life long before Raven or ECW!

Fact of the matter is this, you're either on board or you're not. Choose wisely or maybe you can ask The Briscoes what happens. and will happen again, when you don't.

excuse me but the age of the fall is exactly all of these things.they are the equivalent of those stupid shirts i use to see people wear from hot topic that said something like

'you make fun of me because im different.i make fun of you because youre the same'

bada said...

Um, you have to GET Raven's old gimmick in order to understand this gimmick is the same thing. For most wrestling fans, these things go right over your heads because you're idiots.

The fiends have gagged a generation of pacified fools
Bound by our greed a nation enslaved as corporate tools.
Arise and race the legacy of their lies
To realize that this in itself is an ascension
Towards the day we revolt.
As the seeds you've cast away take hold
War will be born.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun
We'll dance as the palaces burn.
A shot gun blast into the face of deceit
You'll gain your just reward.
We'll not rest until the purge is complete
You will reap what you've sown.
My redemption lies in your demise.
In such a world as this does one dare to think for himself?
The paradox of power and peace will destroy itself
To know the truth and live in fear of no man.
To realize that this in itself is an ascension
Toward the day we revolt.
As the seeds you've cast away take hold
War will be born.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun
We'll dance as the palaces burn.
My redemption lies in your demise.
Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun.
We'll dance as the palaces burn

Woke up screaming on the wrong side of the head
Dreaming of demon's who'd be better off... better off dead
Now I know I'm accountable for the things I've said before
But I just can't shut up, shut up, shut up, get up, get up, get up and get out the door

SO LET'S SING VOLUMES FOR THE SOULS THAT AREN'T FOR SALE
INDEED LATELY THERES BEEN HELL HOUNDS ON MY TRAIL

Woke up screaming on the wrong side of the Zen
So get up(x7) and say the words!
Say the word and I'll be gone
Say the Word and I'll be gone

Say the word and I'll be gone for ever, and ever...
(Get up, Get out)
Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall
Now the enemy plays for the whole fucking world

[Solo 1 - Dev / Solo 2 - Jed]

Sooner or later the nights with the satyr
Will bring back the memory
Leaving you money and time

Sweet locomotive with you is the motive
the beauty, the agony mixes the honey with grime
Sly imitator, the cats in the cradle, the dogs in the stable will
Always remain on your mind

Sooner or later it comes to the table reminding them all
That the memory always was mine.
Wake up running in the only way I can
This type of dependency turns a boy into a man!

Now I know I'm accountable
Now I know I'm responsible
NO PEACE FOR YOU LITTLE MAN!
Say the word and I'll be gone
Say the word and I'll be GONE!!!

Say the word and I'll be gone for ever, and ever...
(Get up, get out)
Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall
(Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall)
Singing the good for the bad in the age of the fall
Now the enemy plays for the whole fucking world!!!!

I was just stating that there are certain things wrong with today's society. To me, this isn't an emo thing or a "hot topic" trend. This is a expression or movement I agree with.

And...

I would love to hear someone break down exactly what Raven's gimmick was because apparently I'm an idiot who doesn't understand, and I'm not a wrestling fan because if I were, then I would understand that this is exactly like the Raven gimmick. I would see that Tyler Black is Stevie Richards, that Necro Butcher is Blue Meanie, and Lacey is Buelah.

Did you see RAW and all the Save_us.222 thing? didn't it remind you something?
