Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Warner Bros. Discovery did not allow AEW to hold a Jay Briscoe tribute show on Dynamite last night.
Jay and his brother Mark were banned from appearing on AEW television by Warner Bros. Discovery due to several old homophobic comments which Jay made over a decade ago. Briscoe had since apologized for his comments but the apology was not enough for WBD to allow them on screen.
AEW opened the show with a 10-second in memory graphic of Briscoe and several wrestlers wore an armband to honor their departed colleague.
The company filmed a tribute show following Dynamite which will air on ROH’s streaming service Honor Club and on ROH’s YouTube channel, with further tribute shows possibly in the works.
