The Briscoes: The Tag Team of a Lifetime Left to Stray

Jay and Mark Briscoe, considered one of the greatest tag teams of all time, never ventured to WWE despite being offered a contract in 2015. The Briscoes, named Tag Team of the Decade by Ring of Honor for the 2010s, were offered a low-paying gig by WWE, which they turned down due to its impact on their work at their family’s chicken ranch. The WWE rescinded their interest after the Briscoes declined the offer.

The Briscoes had a remarkable career, starting with Combat Zone Wrestling in 2001 and going on to establish themselves as one of the most successful and accomplished tag teams in professional wrestling history. They won numerous championships and accolades, solidifying their legacy as true wrestling greats. The trio of matches they had with FTR in ROH last year won the hearts of many fans.

Jay Briscoe’s passing on Tuesday evening after a fatal car accident near his home in Laurel, Delaware, was met with an outpouring of support from the professional wrestling community. The Young Bucks donated $20,000 to Jay Briscoe’s donation page, and many fans continue to show their support for the Briscoe family. The Briscoes’ daughters were stable after the accident, but the tragedy is a devastating loss for the wrestling world.

The Briscoes will always be remembered for their incredible matches and accomplishments, but their failure to join WWE will always be a point of curiosity. Despite being one of the greatest tag teams in the world, they chose to stay true to themselves and their family’s business rather than compromise their principles for a low-paying gig.
