I don’t know what my life would be like without Jay Briscoe in it, and I don’t want to know.

You believed in me, you helped me, you treated me like family. There will never be another like you. I am so grateful to have known a man like you.

I love you Jay.

I don’t have the words right now to properly convey my sorrow. I love Jay & Mark Briscoe. Always have. I wouldn’t be here without them. I’m very lucky to have shared the ring & shared so many laughs with Jay Briscoe and I’m so sad to know neither will happen again. RIP my friend.

— Sami Zayn (@SamiZayn) January 18, 2023

On behalf of the @WWENXT community, I would like to express our condolences to the Briscoe family for their loss.

— Shawn Michaels (@ShawnMichaels) January 18, 2023

Jay was one of those people who was always legitimately happy to see ya. He had a twinkle in his eye and hug waiting for me no matter how long we went without seeing each other. I’m crushed knowing that warmth is gone. My thoughts are with his family and friends. He was special.

— Seth “Freakin’” Rollins (@WWERollins) January 18, 2023

After I signed with WWE, Jay would come to the Salisbury house shows to drink beer and to hoot and holler. He loved the business and he was a great human and friend. Bigger than that he was an absolutely adoring father and husband.

— Seth “Freakin’” Rollins (@WWERollins) January 18, 2023

Being in the ring with Jay Briscoe got me my first ROH contract. He and Mark being so selfless helped Jimmy and I find our footing as AOTF. Without him, I don’t know if Tyler Black could ever have been Seth Rollins.

— Seth “Freakin’” Rollins (@WWERollins) January 18, 2023

I’m doing ok. Thanks everyone for checking on me.

I love you, Jay.

Opinion: The fact that I probably could have put up three times this many tweets (not even touching Instagram etc) tells you how much of an impact Jay had on the wrestling world. All kinds of stars and promotions had something nice to say about him and you do not see that happen very often. Jay was a very talented wrestler and it is going to take a long time to accept the reality that he is gone.
