Fans Stunned as World Champion Wrestler Dies at Age 38: 'This is Crushing'

Jamin Pugh, who starred in the Ring of Honor as pro wrestler Jay Briscoe, has died at the age of 38.

WMDT reported on Tuesday that two people were killed in a car accident at around 5:30 p.m. in Laurel, Delaware, but the names of the victims were not released. The Shore Line News Beacon also referenced the accident but did not reveal the identity of the victims.

The website Wrestling Headlines referenced the two reports in its coverage of the wrestler’s death.

Tony Khan, CEO of All Elite Wrestling and owner of ROH, announced on Twitter that Pugh had died.

“Sadly, Jamin Pugh has passed away. Known to fans as Jay Briscoe, he was a star in ROH for over 20 years, from the first show until today. Jay and his brother Mark dominated ROH, reigning as champions to this day. We’ll do whatever we can to support his family. Rest In Peace Jamin,” he wrote on Twitter.

ROH confirmed Pugh’s death on its website.


“It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the tragic passing of Jamin Pugh, known to wrestling fans around the world as Jay Briscoe. Our thoughts are with his family, his friends, and his fans,”

Reacting to the loss on Twitter, fans and fellow wrestlers wrote that his death was “so unbelievably sad,” "crushing," and “a big loss in wrestling.”

According to Sports Illustrated, Pugh and his brother, Mark, won 13 ROH tag team titles during the 20 years in which they competed, having won their most recent title last month.

As a solo act, Pugh won the ROH world championship twice.

The brothers were inducted into the ROH Hall of Fame last year.
