• AEW Wasn’t Allowed To Do A Tribute Show For Jay Briscoe

ROH Legend Jay Briscoe passed away in a car accident. He was 38 years old.

AEW President Tony Khan wanted to do a tribute show for Jay on Wednesday’s Dynamite, but Warner Bros. Discovery didn’t allow them to do it, because of Jay’s past homophobic tweets, for which he had apologized.

Also because of this, Tony was never able to bring The Briscoes to AEW programming.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Tony tried many times to bring The Briscoes to All Elite Wrestling, but Warner Bros. Discovery told him no:

“This past year there were many attempts to get them on the show. They were actually flown in a few times to television, but they weren’t allowed to be used.

There were plans for them on the 9/4 All Out show in Chicago, to be in a six-man tag with FTR & Wardlow vs. The Briscoes & Jay Lethal.

But without being able to promote it on television and because the broadcast partners didn’t want them on AEW broadcasts, the decision was made to bring the Motor City Machine Guns in out of nowhere to team with Lethal.”
