The Young Bucks paid tribute to Ring of Honor legend Jay Briscoe in a recent video.

Jay Briscoe tragically passed away last Tuesday following a devastating car accident. Briscoe's daughters were also in the car and suffered their own severe injuries. Fortunately, both are in stable condition and are in recovery.

The Young Bucks and The Briscoes shared many years within various locker rooms on the independent circuit, including Ring of Honor. Between the two teams, they have held 16 separate ROH tag title reigns. It's just a shame they never got to face each other in AEW due to the ban put in place by Warner Bros. Discovery.

The Bucks honored the veteran during last week's Dynamite, donning 'Jay' armbands. But they had some words during this week's Being The Elite as well. They said that since starting AEW in 2019, they always wanted to bring the "three best brother tag teams," referring to themselves, The Lucha Brothers and The Briscoes.

"Remember when we first started AEW, we told them, it was like we wanted to start the tag division. We said we need the Lucha Brothers and we need the Briscoe Brothers. We need those sets of brothers, we'll have the three best brother tag teams in the world. They were one of our first teams we tried to hire and we couldn't get it done," said Matt Jackson.

WWE honored Jay Briscoe when news broke of his passing

WWE acknowledged the death of Jay Briscoe who passed away in a car accident today.Class act πŸ™β€οΈ

Tributes to the star were not scarce last week, but perhaps the most surprising nod came from a company that hasn't often recognized outside events. WWE announced the news that Briscoe had passed during their NXT show on Tuesday. They also reportedly nixed a planned funeral segment featuring The New Day.

Jay Briscoe was later honored by Michael Cole ahead of last week's Friday Night SmackDown, in another touching tribute for the late star. AEW may have been unable to honor the veteran during Dynamite, but Tony Khan has confirmed he will release a tribute show to ROH's streaming platform, Honor Club, and YouTube free to watch for all fans.
