The showing was incredibly emotional for the two stars, who put on a great match for the fans to watch.

Tonight’s edition of Dynamite featured an emotional Jay Briscoe tribute package as well. The vignette showcased the professional as well as private live of the late veteran. According to Tony Khan, the main event match was requested by both Mark Briscoe and Jay Lethal.


As previously reported, Tony Khan successfully convinced the executives at WarnerBros Discovery to let Mark Briscoe wrestle on national television. The management had shunned Khan’s attempts to have the Briscoes on AEW shows in the past.
