The tributes to Jay Briscoe continued after AEW Dynamite on Wednesday with a Ring of Honor show recorded in memory of the late star.
AEW and Ring of Honor owner Tony Khan broke the shocking news of Briscoe’s death on social media. Dave Meltzer followed up by stating that Briscoe appeared to have been killed in a car accident in Laurel, Delaware that claimed the life of another person and left two children hospitalised.
The wrestling world has continued to pay tribute to the ROH star as the industry unites in his grief over losing a friend and colleague to many.
Following AEW Dynamite on the 18th of January, a tribute show was taped in Briscoe’s memory. This show will air at a later date so if you don’t want spoilers, this is your warning to stop reading.
