Professional wrestler Jay Briscoe passes away at the age of 38
At the age of 38, Jay Briscoe, a professional wrestler with Ring of Honor, passed away.
Tony Khan, the owner of AEW and the person who bought the Ring of Honor event last March, posted the depressing information on social media.
“Unfortunately, Jamin Pugh has passed away,” he stated. He was a star in ROH for more than 20 years, from the inaugural show to the present. His fans know him as Jay Briscoe.
“Jay and his brother Mark dominated ROH, reigning as champions to this day. We’ll do whatever we can to support his family. Rest In Peace Jamin.”
Pro wrestling insider Dave Meltzer reported the wrestler was involved in a car accident in Delaware.
Jay, whose real name is Jamin “Jay” Pugh, joined ROH in 2002 and went on to form one of the greatest tag teams in the history of pro wrestling with his brother, Mark.
Jay and Mark were tag team partners wrestling under the name “The Briscoe Brothers”.
Jay enjoyed success as a singles competitor too, becoming the Ring of Honor world champion on two separate occasions.
Jay and Mark were inducted into the Ring of Honor’s inaugural Hall of Fame class last year.
Condolence messages are already pouring in following the tragic loss.
