Gerald Brisco Death Rumors False, Family Upset With Diamond Dallas Page

Rumors circulated Thursday that WWE Hall of Famer Gerald Brisco had passed away after suffering a mild stroke recently. Jim Ross has confirmed the rumor as a hoax.

“Just talked to Jerry Brisco and he is ALIVE and doing well,” he wrote on Twitter.

Diamond Dallas Page believed the rumor to be true as he offered condolences on Twitter.

DDP wrote, “Gerald Brisco was a Great Wtestler! A Great TV character but most of a Great Man! And he will be Extremely missed! RIP Brother!”

He later clarified his remarks, writing, “Just found out Gerry is Alive and well! Thank God! Damn some times I hate the twitter thing.”

Page’s statement upset Brisco and members of his family.

Brisco wrote on Facebook, “I’m well enough to kick DDP butt for putting this out there and upsetting my family.”

    rumors are a terrible thing people love to post “oh he’s dead” & “oh that person died” the thing is people are gullible at the time to believe them for example i read in another post “king kong bundy to do whatever” i cant remember.

    i remember saying to myself “didnt he die 15 years ago” we all can get sucked in by the rumor mill, what ddp did isnt wrong, he just got sucked in, but gerry’s family getting upset with ddp is unwarranted, so the guy made a mistake we’re not a perfect species & people tend to fuck up from time to time.

    Gerry vs DDP for TNA title at BFG 2017. They’ll be old enought then. But Gerry needs to realize DDP meant no harm.

    Gerry was part of a legendary tag team in NWA. But DDP was the ORIGINAL “People’s Champ”, and one of the few GOOD original stars of WCW. He was awesome. End of story.
