• Jay Briscoe’s Daughter Set To Undergo Major Surgery After Car Accident

ROH Legend Jay Briscoe passed away last night at the age of 38 in a car accident.

The accident took place near his home in Laurel, Delaware. According to the initial police report, multiple calls were made reporting as many as 4 patients trapped.

The initial responder confirmed that there was “entrapment and fire” at the scene and “command advising 1 critical pediatric, 2nd serious patient. Evaluating two others.” Another updated stated “EMS advising 2 adult fatalities and 2 critical patients being transported at this time.”

WMDT later reported that two people died in this collision and AEW President Tony Khan revealed on Twitter that one of them is Jay Briscoe.

Jay’s wife Ashley Pugh took to Facebook to announce that their daughter was also involved in the accident and will be undergoing a major surgery:

“We need prayers! Gracie is on her way into surgery on her back. Jamin would want the whole world praying for his little girl. WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYER!!

Pray for the doctors and everyone working on her! Pray for her precious legs to move again! Pray for Jayleigh who has some pretty serious injuries, but is stable and resting! Pray for Gannon waiting at home! Pray for strength for all of us! We have a long long road ahead of us!”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 18, 2005) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2005, we lost Old School NWA/WCW/WWF Veteran “Pistol” Pez Whatley (Real name: Pezavan Whatley) at the age of 54 after a heart attack.

Some 80s NWA fans might also remember him as Shaska Whatley, which was his name during the feud with “The Boogie Woogie Man” Jimmy Valiant.

Later in his career he worked as a “Jobber To The Stars” for the World Wrestling Federation in 1990 & 1991 and then also for WCW during the early & mid 90s.

Whatley was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021 as part of their annual “Legacy Wing” inductions.
