Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
Since I'm new here and in the process of getting my BTB operational I thought this would be a good way to show people what I can do.
BTB Match Writing Tournament
Round Two-No Holds Barred
For over a year Jimmy Jacobs and Lacey were the power couple in Ring of Honor. With Jimmy Jacobs at the helm the Age of the Fall dominated Ring of Honor for the better part of a year. Jimmy Jacobs and Tyler Black even managed to win the tag team titles on two occasions. Jimmy Jacobs was looking to expand his group by adding the services of Austin Aries. After several recruiting attempts, including one by Lacey herself, Austin still refused to join the Age of the Fall. In a surprising turn of events Lacey left Jimmy Jacobs to be with Austin Aries. Jimmy Jacobs, already mentally unstable as it is, began to show signs of a full mental breakdown. At Return Engagement Jimmy repeatedly spiked himself in the head and even sat out the main event match against the Vulture Squad.
Several weeks later Jimmy Jacobs and the Age of the Fall ambushed Lacey leading to her departure from Ring Of Honor. Austin Aries tried on several occasions to exact revenge against Jimmy Jacobs but Jimmy constantly ducked the challenge or made it tag team matches. Eventually Austin Aries won matches against Necro Butcher and Tyler Black on back to back shows despite heavy interference to finally get a match against Jimmy Jacobs at Death Before Dishonor 6. Gabe Sapolsky, knowing the intense hatred these two men share and knowing that the match probably wouldn’t end cleanly, took it a step farther and made the match a Fight without Honor. How far will each man go to win the match? How much blood will be shed?
