Tony Khan's recent announcement of a tribute match to Jay Briscoe has resulted in the Twitterverse heavily praising him.

Jay Briscoe's untimely demise has caused ripples in the community over the last few days. A number of stars across multiple Promotions paid their tributes to the ROH legend, remembering him for his outstanding contribution to pro-wrestling.

While many expected AEW to pay tribute to Jay on live TV, the Jacksonville-based Promotion was apparently banned by Warner Bros Discovery Inc. media from doing so. This led to widespread outrage from fans. However, it seems that Tony Khan has managed to find a way to pay his respects to the ROH legend.

In a recent tweet, the All Elite president announced that Mark Briscoe would be squaring off against Jay Lethal in a singles match. The bout is scheduled for the next Dynamite episode this Wednesday, which coincides with Jay Briscoe's 39th birthday.
