Mike Johnson also reported on PW Insider that Jay Briscoe passed away in a car accident. There are very few details at this time.


“Briscoe passed away several hours ago in what we have heard was a ‘car accident’, although obviously details are very very preliminary as of this writing.”

WMDT News reported that “A fatal car collision in Laurel left two dead Tuesday evening according to Delaware State Police. The incident occurred in the area of Laurel Road and Little Hill Road around 5:30 pm and caused an extended road closure.” No names were released at the time of the report,

This is a tragedy and our thoughts are with Jay Briscoe’s family and friends at this time.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
