Our New War

Since we last spoke one war was ended, another began, and a third is now scheduled for renewal...

Two and a half weeks ago we did just as I said we would. We tore down the superficial. We vanquished the facade. When Jimmy made Alex Shelley give up, Jimmy not only gained a measure of personal revenge, but through his desire and fortitude he showed the world that if you can visualize answers, they will appear. And now there is no longer a shadow; no longer a mask. Contracts and image and money mean nothing. Fuck exploitation. The reality isn't in the show, it's in our hearts. We believed. And we conquered. And as the garbage crashed like hail on our parade... I have never known such a beautiful shower of disappointment turned elation.

Unfortunately, our celebration was quickly soured, and just as Jimmy had put what he thought to be the last of his demons to rest by defeating Alex Shelley, it appears that old ghosts still haunt him. For now. There is not much I can ascertain relating to love and lust and how they effect Jimmy in this situation. All I can say is that anyone who has ever felt the sting of a broken heart has to empathize. More to follow...

One exception I do take in regards to Austin Aries is his use of the word "hypocrite" in relation to us and our fight.

In today's cynical world, where it has become more of a crime to believe in anything at all than it has to sit-- idle and ignorant, what kind of person do you think you are, Austin? I understand as well as anyone what personal turmoil and indecision can lead to. I know the road depression paves and uncertainty paints so simple and pretty. It's not easy to go down the gravel, signless road. It's not easy to figure things out on your own.

What we are Austin, is an alternative to that nice road that takes you to the big city and that nine to five-tired name tag-weekend warrior bullshit lifestyle. And you know what? On our end, there stand Age of the Fall and no one else. So we're fighting one versus one million. And you know what else? We're not afraid. Of the blind stereotypes like the Motor City Machine Guns. Or, of the silent cynics like you and 90% of middle class America. The ones who love to talk about all the things in this life that need to change, but never once stand up. Or even take a single look in the mirror.

And now it seems like you have been given a World Tag Team Championship. Wow. I bet you feel proud... Come the Hammerstein, we'll show you what action is all about when we pry that belt from your undeserving hands. Whether they are alive and clenched, or cold and dead...

But before we reach that road, Age of the Fall invades the nation's capitol. And there, on May 9th I find myself pitted--one more time-- against "The Best In The World."

...Bryan, the last time we met I took for granted your experience. I will give you all the credit in the world, as your moniker may not be such a stretch. But I truly believe that in Dayton last year, it was not you who beat me. It was me who beat me. A lot of kids go into matches with wrestlers they idolized just happy to be there. And the first time, maybe that is a halfway viable excuse, but it's also new motivation for me. I can defeat you Bryan Danielson. This time, will be nothing like the last time. This time, Bryan, I will defeat you.

That was great to read and true. Tyler Black vs. Bryan Danielson...I can't choose because I respect both guys, however I would just like for yourself and Danielson to steal the show May 9th. Then May 10th, steal not only the show but the belts with Jimmy Jacobs by your side. See you May 10th, Tyler.

Wow, ow boring and unoriginal... AOF is another rehashed "Jimmy-Loves-Lacey" angle. Oh well, at least you are getting better as a wrestler nd getting more respect, Tyler.

Here is how May 9th will play out... Tyler will get his ass whipped by Danielson.. Then Jimmy will get the living shit kicked out of him by Jay.. Then on the 10th both you pussies will get murdered by Aries and Briscoe... So stop the crying... You guys are a group of cry baby hacks.. One guy is a drug addict, on is a pussy, another is a one legged wonder, then you have a homeless guy, then the sissy follower... Get over the high horse..

Jimmy - Did you lose a 'hair vs. hair' match recently? Or is George Weingraff doing you hair?

It was great to meet Tyler Black in Orlando. I'm sure he'll come around soon and stop drinking Jimmy's kool aid.

where's the next post? nothing more to harp on about? at the end of the day you complain about all that is wrong with the world yet how do you propose to change any of it?

You have crybaby in Jimmy who in his first speech he found nothing in love, yet he loses it over Lacey leaving him, if love means nothing, then so do Jacobs and everything he supposedly stands for. Tyler and Necro don't really fit into the whole 'the world has no place for us' mentality, Tyler has everything he needs to dominate the business and Necro is so unique in what he can do then that there will always be a place for him.

When AOTF started it was new, cutting edge, dark. Now it's a joke, the whole momentum you gained has changed on things you supposedly find no truth in - emotion and love.

you guys have slipped into mediocrity with only Tyler looking like getting to the top, Jimmy, nobody takes you seriously.

Get a grip guys or get the next bus out of ROH. Hell, Bobby Dempsey is more over than you.
