Jacob Uriah Rogers (born April 27, 1977) is a Europeon professional wrestler, better known by his ring name Jake Rogers. He is currently under contract to the Revolution Championship Wrestling Federation (RCWF) on the Demolition brand. Jake is also married to Faith Marie Thatcher Rogers, a women's wrestler for the female brand of RCWF, SHIMMER.
Rogers was born in the dirt poor town of Port Royal, Jamaica, on April 27, 1977. Jake lived a hard childhood, being beaten, battered and bruised, day in and day out by the rich sons of local politicians that looked down on Jake for his rather shady legacy. Jake came from a long line of pirates that spanned from what can be called the golden age of piracy to his "father" who was put to death via hanging for raiding cargo ships around the shores of England. This occurred approximately around the time Jake was ten years of age, leading to low self-esteem as a child. Jake stayed in a state of depression until he met a young girl who also hailed from pirate roots. The young girl's name was Faith Marie Thatcher. Jake and Faith soon became inseparable as they grew up together admiring the works of professional wrestlers such as Johnny Saint and other profound English wrestlers at the time. Faith soon was able to pull a few strings and got Jake a spot on her father's crew as a Powder Monkey.
Faith's father had always had it in for Jake, giving him brutal assignments day to day, and also denying Jake the right to see his daughter. With this happening, Jake and Faith were forced to see one another in private behind the captain's back. Jake and Faith's forbidden friendship quickly turned into a forbidden love.
At the age of 16, Faith and Jake were caught having relations in the storage closet of the ship. Faith's father as enraged as he was pulled out a flintlock pistol and shot Jake off the ship. Jake seemingly unharmed by this swam to safety. Back on the ship Faith was so angry at her Father in the middle of the night Faith took her things and ran off to the shore to meet up with Jake. The couple soon realized if they wanted to make there dreams of making it big in the pro-wrestling industry, they would have to start as soon as possible. With that said, Jake and his lover, Faith Thatcher, hijacked a commercial cruiser, relying on their pirate ancestry, took over the ship and sailed for the Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Early Wrestling Career
Jake, now toughened by several years on the sea, found some wrestling training in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, by a young up and Rogan Reid to be the basis for what would soon be his large variety of styles. Jake and Faith (who also trained under Reid) made their way to the dojos of Japan once again hijacking a vessel. The couple spent two long years in the circuit, wrestling under the names, ザ 塩辛い海の犬 (roughly translated to "The Salty Sea Dog" as Jake's wrestling name) and ザ海オックスフォード運河 (also roughly translated to "The Sea Wench" as Faith's wrestling name). They wrestled each and every night, utilizing tactics and dressing in traditional pirate attire as homage to the two's pirate heritage, a tradition they would utilize for years to come. Jake cites his time in Japan for his hard brawler attitude he utilizes now.
After the time over in the Japan circuit, (Jake) Rogers and (Faith) Thatchers sailed over back to their home continent of Europe as Jake and Faith began to work all over Europe from Ireland to Blackpool. At the age of 21, Jake purposed to Faith Thatcher, merely months later the couple was wedded by none other than Papa Murda. Jake and Faith continued working around the Florida area Jake and Faith decided it was time to
start a family. Thus having Faith give to their first born child, Hope Elizabeth Rogers on April 26, 2000 in Miami, Florida, while still touring for the first time in America. Faith after giving birth to Hope was sadly injured at a house show in Miami,Florida, when Cheerleader Melissa was performing a Texas Cloverleaf, Melissa accidentally bent Faith's legs to hard, thus causing Faith to suffer from a torn hamstring, putting her out of wrestling for 8 months.
Jake now angered by this dedicated the rest of his time in the Florida circuit to Faith's injury. This fire in Rogers heart had him recognized by Thaddius Peters (aka Tad Peters), the owner and chairmen of Revolution Championship Wrestling Federation (aka RCWF).

White, and his replacement, Pedro Sanchez. After the match, he was informed that the attack from the 3 men was another form of being excommunicated from the faction. After that, Jake formerly apologized for his actions and began a friendship with Trent Reign, one of the very first people attacked by Death Cell.
