The wrestling world experienced a tragic incident as Jay Briscoe passed away at the age of 38. His untimely passing led to an outpouring of support and prayers on social media. The pain of his loss will be felt for a long time, but it seems Briscoe will be happy to know in heaven that his family will be taken care of by many – including The Young Bucks.

The ROH Hall of Famer was involved in a fatal car crash on Tuesday evening when another driver crossed the center line and hit his vehicle head-on. This was confirmed by the Delaware State Police, who are investigating the entire matter.

As previously reported, a donation page was set up by Briscoe’s family friend for fans to offer their help for the Pugh family. As soon as the donation page was set up, it ended up smashing its original goal of $50k in a couple of hours.


Now the current goal is $100k and has raised $63,520 so far. The two largest donations came from The Young Bucks, who donated $10k each for a total of $20k. Both Jackson Brothers also wrote touching messages for Jay Briscoe and his family.

Nick Jackson wrote,”I love you guys. Praying for the entire family. My heart breaks for you all! I know he’s in heaven looking after you all now and will continue to be a guardian angel. Love y’all so much.”

Matt Jackson also wrote: “Jay, we love you and miss you man.” Their donations were one-minute apart from each other.

Cody and Brandi Rhodes also donated $1k. The pro wrestling world is still donating to this cause, so many more high-dollar donations are likely to follow.
