WarnerMedia Officials Against AEW Signing The Briscoes

Ever since its inception back on January 1st, 2019, All Elite Wrestling has really been making a name for themselves in the pro wrestling industry and they have even been garnering global recognition and huge amounts of success all around the world and they have also been reaching worldwide audiences and markets. Now that All Elite wrestling has reached their third year in the pro wrestling industry, the company has truly become a world-wide name and they can even be considered as a worthy competitor for the WWE.

One of the biggest factors in AEW’s continued success is the caliber of talent the company has signed since the promotion launched back in 2019, with names such as The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, “Hangman” Adam Page, Chris Jericho, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole in their pool of roster. The company has also signed tag teams such as FTR, reDRagon, The Hardys, The Kings Of The Black Throne and Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus, who are the current AEW World Tag Team Champions, but one tag team that the fans want to see compete in AEW, though will probably not get the chance to see are The Briscoes (Mark and Jay Briscoe).

As soon as Ring Of Honor (ROH) announced this past December that they are going on a major hiatus and the promotion even released majority of, if not their entire roster, plus the Twitter feud that would just add to the speculation, it was believed that AEW would sign The Briscoes to a contract, but even before AEW President and CEO Tony Khan purchased ROH, there seemed to be a talk that AEW did not have any interest of plans to sign The Briscoes.

Fightful Select reports that a person of influence at WarnerMedia didn’t want AEW to sign Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe to a contract with the promotion, mainly due to Jay Briscoe’s homophobic tweets from 2013, even though one-half of the 12-time ROH World Tag Team Champions had already apologized for the tweets at a ROH show, so it wouldn’t have mattered if AEW had an interest in signing them because the WarnerMedia officials not wanting The Briscoes to be signed would have been an issue and a conflict.

There’s no word yet on if The Briscoes will be signed to ROH now that it’s owned by AEW President and CEO Tony Khan, but they are set to defend the ROH World Tag Team Titles at Supercard Of Honor against an opponent that has yet to be named, though that match was set before Khan purchased ROH and there’s a recent report that notes The Briscoes are no longer locked in for the show. People in ROH have said that The Briscoes haven’t caused any problems or issues for the promotion since those tweets and that Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe were even made for TV, but AEW and WarnerMedia can’t be blamed for their decisions.
