Jimmy Jacobs has been a fixture of Ring of Honor almost as long as there has been an ROH. From his debut in 2003 until this very day, the Michigan native has captured the attention of the ROH faithful through his battles with Alex Shelley, his partnership and subsequent violent rivalry with BJ Whitmer, and his very controversial leadership of The Age of The Fall.
One of the most unique men in wrestling today, Jacobs career has been one of constant reinvention. From the furry boots and HUSS chants to the spike wielding, bloodthirsty leader of AOTF, Jimmy Jacobs has become just as known for his character as for his in-ring ability and for creating some of the most memorable moments in ROH's history.
Now, for the very first time, Jimmy Jacobs sits down with ROH cameras to openly discuss everything from the beginnings of his wrestling career in the Mid-West to his introduction to Ring of Honor to his partnership with Tyler Black. Jacobs is brutally honest about how he nearly lost his job with ROH, how he saved himself with one music video, and how it all lead to that night at “Man Up” that no ROH fan will ever forget.
Jimmy opens up about how The Age of The Fall came together, about how the creative changes within ROH affected it, and how his time away from Ring of Honor ended up being much longer than expected. Jimmy is also very blunt about the problems that he experienced in his personal life during his sabbatical from Ring of Honor.
This is a one of a kind look at the life & career of one of the most intriguing individuals who has ever graced the ROH ring. From his story with Lacey to his own relationship with professional wrestling, this is a set we could only call From Love To Hate: The Jimmy Jacobs Story...
