He had arguably an even better way with Alex Shelley in 2004. If you have the means, go back and watch it. Arguably the most underrated RoH match ever, because it went on directly before Joe/Punk 2.

As stated, his body of work is incredibly impressive, and he deserves major credit not just for the Lacey/Whitmer/Cabana saga, but in being the clear lynchpin of a very dry period for Sapolsky starting in late 2006. I cannot fathom the six month stretch of October 2006 to March 2007 without Jacobs. Then there are the mentioned matches involving Shelley, Aries, and the Briscoes, but another underrated gem to be found is against Strong at Chi-Town Struggle. He also deserves credit for his part in getting Generation Next over during a very trying period for the company behind the scenes.
