The wrestling community was deeply saddened by the passing of Jay Briscoe at the age of 38. His unfortunate passing has led to an outpouring of support and condolences from fans and fellow wrestlers on social media. The loss of Jay Briscoe is deeply felt and will be mourned for a long time, yet fans and professional wrestlers continue to offer their support and condolences to his family and loved ones. That being said, the family of the other driver and their family did not get the same warmth and have been getting attacked on social media. Now it seems Jay Briscoe’s wife and friends are against these attacks.

The ROH Hall of Famer was tragically involved in a fatal car accident last week. The Delaware State Police confirmed that another driver crossed the center line and collided with his vehicle head-on. The police are currently investigating the incident.

As previously reported, a donation page was set up by Briscoe’s family friend for fans to offer their help for the Pugh family. In fact, it ended up smashing its original goal of $50K, getting close to $300k.

The driver of the other car was named Lillyanne Ternahan, who also lost her life in the tragic accident. The organiser of the Pugh family donation page, Josh Wharton, recently addressed the nasty attacks Ternahan’s family has been getting, as he condemned the attacks.

“It’s been a tough week for our community, but also has been heartwarming to see the outpouring of love towards the Pugh family during this tragedy. Once again-Jamin touched so many lives across the world and that has been evident by the daily tributes, comments and love we’ve all witnessed. The girls are still progressing, as God continues to hear all of our prayers.

Unfortunately this has not been the case for the other family, as there have been numerous rumors and information out there-which has led to attacking/degrading comments on social media that the family has seen. Her children will read these at some point.

Jamin, Ashley, the Pugh family, myself and K.c. do not stand for this. In a time of tragedy, pointing fingers does not reverse what has been done.

The driver of the other vehicle has 2 young children, and we all should be showing the same love and compassion for them as we have done for the Pugh’s. Be reminded that their world has also been turned upside down undeservingly, and there is a huge hole left in their family.

I am sincerely asking that everyone stop with the negative comments and feelings towards them. Let me remind you all that none of us, and I know myself better than anyone-have things we are not proud of. We all struggle with something.

To judge an entire life by the outcome of this tragedy is not who we are. Only love can conquer hate. Instead of expressing harsh feelings, pray for them.”
