Planned segment on NXT scrapped due to Jay Briscoe’s death

A planned segment on NXT featuring The New Day and Pretty Deadly was altered last night out of respect for Jay Briscoe, who passed away just hours before the broadcast.

According to John Pollock of POST Wrestling, The New Day were supposed to host a funeral segment for Pretty Deadly but after news broke that Briscoe passed away, NXT management scrapped the segment which would have been insensitive and then quickly altered things up.

The New Day, Pretty Deadly, and Gallus – who now face each other in a triple threat tag team title match at Vengeance Day – took the screens after Vic Joseph announced Briscoe’s death on live television.
