Early Thursday, All Elite Wrestling organized a tribute match for Jay Briscoe who passed away last week. The match main evented the latest episode of Dynamite and it was between his brother and historical tag team partner, Mark, and his top ROH rivalry Jay Lethal.
Last week, Warner media rejected AEW's request for setting up a tribute show to Jay Briscoe on TV due to their previous comments on the LGBT community 10 years ago.
However, pro wrestling fans took social media to push Warner corporation's TBS to air a better tribute for the last Briscoe.
