Mark Briscoe experienced an unthinkable tragedy when his brother Jay Briscoe was taken from us far too soon. Jay Briscoe died in a car wreck last Tuesday, and the pro wrestling world is still in mourning. Despite Jay Briscoe’s death, WarnerMedia would not allow Tony Khan to honor his name during last week’s episode of Dynamite. Old tweets from Briscoe haunted him, even after his passing. Now, it seems that WarnerMedia has backed off this stance a little.
It was previously noted that WarnerMedia was not going to allow to wrestle on Dynamite, even after Jay Briscoe’s passing. Now things are much different as Mark Briscoe is booked for his AEW debut.
Tony Khan was very happy to announce that Mark Briscoe will be in Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday night, where he will wrestle on AEW Dynamite. Briscoe will take on Jay Lethal, and it just so happens to be Mark’s birthday too.
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
We will have to see how this pans out. Obviously, Mark Briscoe will get a massive pop in Lexington, Kentucky. Odds are it will also be an incredibly emotional moment.
Our thoughts are still with the entire Briscoe family during this sad time. Mark Briscoe broke his silence on the matter through a family friend, and he is confident that he will see his brother again some day in Heaven. Now, Jay Briscoe will watch his brother’s AEW Dynamite debut from above.
