WWE Hall of Famer Ripped By Fans After Car Wreck

Jay Briscoe, the one-half of the Briscoe Brothers tag team who passed away at the age of 38-years-old. Ringside News reported the emergency medical services log from the call where Jay Briscoe passed away. It appears that a woman also died at the scene. This story gets even worse as more information is revealed. It is believed that Jay Briscoe’s daughter was also in the wreck, and she was referred to as a “critical pediatric” in the log.


Bryan Alvarez later reported that Jay Briscoe’s daughter’s school is closed tomorrow. He posted an official announcement from the school which described this event as “an unthinkable tragedy.”

It has been noted that pro wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer was recently called out for reporting false stories. Eric Bischoff retweeted a link to an article that was calling Meltzer out, along with a caption to rile up fans.

Dave is the definition of a useful idiot. Sloppy, lazy, and zero integrity. Surprised it’s taken this long to expose him for what he is. Prominent Wrestling Journalist Dave Meltzer Accused Of Publishing Stories Based On False Information
Pro wrestling veteran Eric Bischoff replied to his own tweet once again as he made one more attempt to get fans’ attention. It seemingly did work:

Let’s expose this piece of garbage for what he is: retweet with wreckless abandon!

Fans replied to Eric Bischoff’s second tweet with anger. “Jay just died, sit down” one fan tweeted back. Another commented to say:

“With all due respect Eric, the wrestling world is mourning tonight. Maybe move this fight to another day.”

The majority thinking was that Eric Bischoff should have saved that tweet about Dave Meltzer. This simply wasn’t the right time for such a comment. Another fan made things very clear with their reply.

Eric, I think the MAJORITY of wrestling fans are focused on SOMETHING ELSE right now…

There’s a such thing as a TIME and a PLACE and sorry man, but THIS ain’t it.

A wrestler has DIED tonight and people are MOURNING… the LEAST you can do is pay some RESPECT!

During his 20+ year wrestling career, Jay Briscoe was most well known for his time in Ring of Honor along with his brother Mark Briscoe. The two brothers were 13-time ROH Tag Team Team Champions that also recently won the titles against from FTR last month at ROH Final Battle. It was a match praised heavily by the wrestling world as one of the best tag team matches ever.

The Briscoes are also in the ROH Hall of Fame that were inducted in the inaugural Hall of Fame that was announced last year. Jay was also a two-time ROH World Champion as well.
