Briscoe, whose real name was Jamin Pugh, passed away on Tuesday evening, and the news was verified by Tony Khan, the owner of Ring of Honor and All Elite Wrestling companies.

According to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, Briscoe was apparently killed in a car accident near Laurel, Delaware, at approximately 5:30 in the afternoon.

Delaware State Police say that two people died in a car crash in Laurel on Tuesday night.

The incident took place in the vicinity of Laurel Road and Little Hill Road at approximately 5:30 p.m. and resulted in the prolonged closure of the road.

Khan provided confirmation of the devastating news later on Tuesday.

“Unfortunately, Jamin Pugh has died,” Khan wrote in a tweet.

He was a star in ROH for more than 20 years, from the first show to the present. He is known to fans as Jay Briscoe.

“Jay and his brother Mark were the best in ROH, and they are still the champions to this day.

“We’ll do whatever we can to support his family. Rest In Peace Jamin.”

Jay Briscoe and his brother Mark were members of the renowned ROH tag team that won the tag team championship 13 times

At ROH Final Battle 2022 on December 10, 2018, they beat FTR, which was made up of Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood. This was the start of their last reign.

On January 17, Jay tweeted a picture of a new hat with a “13X” patch, which seemed to be a reference to the tag team’s 13 championships.

After the news of Briscoe’s passing spread throughout the wrestling community, tributes came pouring in almost immediately.

A tweet from a former ROH owner read: “The world has lost a magnificent man, and I have lost one of my children. RIP!”

The tag team of Usos wrote: “Jay Briscoe was a good friend. My heart goes out to your family. Go to heaven, uso.”
