Jay Briscoe Dies In Car Accident

Jay Briscoe Dies In Car Accident – As noted, ROH World Tag Team Champion Jay Briscoe passed away earlier today at the age of 38.

While details are still limited at this time, Delaware State Police did report that Jay Briscoe and another passenger died Tuesday evening after a fatal car crash in Laurel, Delaware. The crash occurred in the area of Laurel Road and Little Hill Road around 5:30 PM Eastern.

The other passenger has yet to be identified other than adult. According to a report on the Shore News Beacon, the car had two other passengers that were “critical” with one being referenced as pediatric. The words “entrapment” and “fire” were also used.

Briscoe (born Jamin Pugh) was set to turn 39 later this month.

The wrestling world has responded to this tragic news with touching tributes to their fallen friend and colleague.

During tonight’s WWE NXT, commentator Vic Joseph sent condolences to the family of Jay Briscoe following his passing.

AEW star and one half of FTR, Cash Wheeler tweeted his initial reaction to the tragedy, writing:

“I’ve been in tears since I heard the news. I just don’t have the words. Rest in Peace Jay.”

FTR’s Dax Harwood later posted a photo on Twitter with he and Cash Wheeler drinking a beer with The Briscoes following ROH Final Battle 2022. He wrote:

“I’m doing ok. Thanks everyone for checking on me. I love you, Jay.”

The Briscoes and FTR put on a critically acclaimed trilogy of matches in 2022 over the Ring of Honor World Tag Team Championships. Jay and Mark Briscoe defeated Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler in a Double Dog Collar match to claim their 13th reign with the titles.

WWE star Cody Rhodes took to Twitter and wrote the following:

“I didn’t interact much with him, but upon meeting Jay I instantly understood something about him…his family was his everything. All the love in the world to them this evening.”

Cody’s former Elite stablemates The Young Bucks changed their background photo on their Twitter account to a picture of the former two-time ROH World Champion.

The Young Bucks were one of the career rivals of The Briscoes during their run in Ring of Honor.

Long-time ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni tweeted the following:

“Jay was one of a kind.

I traveled often with Jay and Mark. We couldn’t have been more different but that’s what made our friendship something I’ll cherish forever.

He’d give you the shirt off his back, his last dime. He was so proud of his kids. Loved his family so much.”

ROH Founder Cary Silkin took to Twitter and posted a photo of himself with Briscoe. He wrote:

“I lost one of my kids and the world lost a great man! RIP!”

WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H has taken to Twitter to pay his own tribute to the fallen legend. He tweeted:

“An incredible performer who created a deep connection with wrestling fans across the globe. My condolences to the family and friends of Jay Briscoe.”
