Early Thursday, the prestigious US pro wrestling promotion Ring of Honor streamed a special tribute show to Jay Briscoe. Jay Briscoe was one of a few wrestlers who kept their names tied with ROH and devoted his career to the brand.
In addition, he is the half of The Briscoes team that widely contributed to the world of tag team wrestling legacy alongside FTR, Young Bucks, The Hardy Boyz, and others.
The Briscoes and FTR had a five-star trilogy and main-evented two pay-per-views out of three of ROH's earliest PPVs after the promotion's re-branding last year.
Unfortunately, Jay Briscoe passed away last week in a car crash, a month after capturing the ROH World Tag Team titles with his brother Mark.
Therefore, Tony Khan tapped a special tribute event for Jay Briscoe, last week, to be streamed for free on youtube and ROH's platform Honor Club on the late star's birthday.

Last week, different stars were spotted wearing armbands with the name of Jay such as Bryan Danielson, and the Young Bucks.
In addition, a special tribute message was aired before the beginning of the show.
