Mark Briscoe To Make AEW Debut On Dynamite

Mark Briscoe

Tony Khan has announced that to celebrate the life and legacy of Jay Briscoe, Mark Briscoe will be making his AEW debut on Dynamite.

Jay Briscoe passed away on the 17th of January following a car accident that also killed the driver of the other car involved. Briscoe’s two daughters were also in the car and they remain in hospital for treatment to serious injuries at this time.

AEW Dynamite on the 18th of January aired a brief tribute to Jay Briscoe at the start of the show but Tony Khan chose to film a full tribute to Briscoe under the Ring of Honor banner that will air for free on Honor Club at a later date. Reports suggested Warner Bros. Discovery did not want a full tribute show airing on TBS.

Earlier reports suggested that such a ban still extended to Mark Briscoe but this, thankfully, has proven not to be the case with Tony Khan announcing on social media that Briscoe is set to make his AEW debut in Lexington, Kentucky on Dynamite as he goes one-on-one with another ROH legend, Jay Lethal. The match takes place on what would have been Jay Briscoe’s 39th birthday:

“Tomorrow 1/25 Lexington KY Live on TBS 8pm ET/7pm CT Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite Mark Briscoe vs Jay Lethal Requested by both men to celebrate the life + legacy of the late great Jay Briscoe on his 39th birthday, his longtime friend/rival Jay Lethal vs his brother Mark Briscoe”
