    If you're hearing someone in the distance singing "Unfap My D*ck!" like a sad Toni Braxton, that's me!

    As many of you probably know, I have a downright pitiful fetish for hunky wrestlers, and very few have been as high up on my totem pole of p0rn than Jay Briscoe.

    He and his brother Mark (Jamin Pugh and Mark Pugh, respectively, in real life) have been like a lot of those AAA baseball All-stars that, for one reason or another, get some brief callups but never quite make it stick in the big leagues. For many pro rasslin fans that avoid the top promotions like the plague, "The Briscoe Brothers" are the Kane and Undertaker of the rest of the bunch. Jay is the more photogenic and the bigger loudmouth among the two, so Jay projects himself to the wrestling world like Penn does to Mark's Teller.

    They've staked their claim by being MORE outlandish and brash than anyone in the business. That is, in their performance. That's part of the reason why I've always looked past the Confederate getups, the same way I would for an Iron Sheik or a Ted DeBiase in the past. It's why, once Jay got himself on Twitter, spending plenty of time verbally bashing Obama and various and sundry liberals online, I've passed it off as mere.political ignorance that is his right to spew.

    I always wondered, though, how long it would take before he trips over the Third Rail of homophobia (and I'm not saying he hasn't already done so before). This time, he's wrapped a figure-four leg lock around the third rail. For someone who poses as uncaring about anyone or anything for a living, it would take an incredible level of outrage to wrestle him away from the Twitter. Outrage like what ensued after he said THIS last night:

    Jay Briscoe (@jaybriscoe84, via Twitter)"The Delaware Senate passed a bill yesterday that allows same sex couples to get married. If that makes you happy, then congratulations!!!!!

    ... try and teach my kids that there's nothing wrong with that and I'll f**king shoot you"


    http://www.towleroad.com/2013/05/briscoe.html

    No, he's not going to piledrive you, "teachers." This 220-pound thug will reach for his weapon of choice and shoot you with it. Now, if any of his children or grandchildren grow up to be gay, despite all his Biblical protests and roid-raged threats, then what weapon will he choose?

    It was something the brothers did as 16-and-17-year-old kids, ironically, that put them on the path to C-List fame in the first place. They worked out a contract and wrestled at Philly's famous ECW arena... underaged, by Pennsylvania state law. Somehow, no one cared that it wasn't OK, and somehow, no one got shot for signing the kids up.

    The brothers are from Sandy Fork, Delaware and grew up in Laurel, Delaware. The description on Jay's Twitter's page read: "We say grace, we say amen. If you ain't into that, we don't give a damn." Of course, somebody gave a damn, apparently, because his Twitter has been deleted.

    Ring of Honor (the largest wrestling promotion company after WWE and TNA) was quick to usher out a response for their most recognizable employee. but as the current Ring of Honor world champion (this is his first title reign, winning it just last month), he's put all their related storylines in a quandary, not to mention the reputation. With such a violently threatening statement, he's now forced his legions of fans to take sides they shouldn't have to take.

    Ring of Honor statement (via prowrestling.net)"Ring of Honor Wrestling respects and appreciates every fan regardless of age, gender, race, religion or sexual preference. The recent post by Jay Briscoe does not represent the views or opinions of Ring of Honor Wrestling, its owners, management or employees."


    It represents the view of at least one employee. Unless, of course, they've fired him.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got a bunch of pics and vids of Jay Briscoe to delete from my "stash." icon_evil.gif

    You can still jack off to him. Just pretend he's one of those straight guys who gets down when no one else is looking.

    Cageside Seats (SB Nation)This is much worse than TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bully Ray recently using gay slurs to trash talk a ringside fan. Ray was a heel who went too far in his attempts to generate heat whilst in the zone performing. It was a dumb move, but at least he and Dixie Carter quickly apologized for his indiscretion.

    Even though he plays a redneck character, Jay Briscoe is supposed to be a babyface and here he is spewing hateful anti-gay rhetoric in a public forum. There are certainly many young, impressionable gay wrestling fans out there that are struggling to come to terms with their sexuality and such statements from someone they may look up to would undoubtedly cause them psychological harm. That's why such overt homophobia needs to be completely eliminated from the wrestling business.

    Moreover, this is not the first time that Briscoe has made such a mistake, tweeting two years ago that "Damn there's a lot of fags out in New York today #WhatTheFuck". Clearly, some people never learn and that infraction must have went unpunished from Sinclair Broadcasting and ROH's higher ups at the time for him to make a similar error in judgement again. Hopefully that doesn't happen again.

    Just in the past hour, ROH takes another whack at the Damage Control Pinata.

    Now, how about ADULT hate-related behavior, ROH?

    **For whatever it's worth, ROH is owned by Sinclair Broadcasting Group, who owns the largest number of local television stations in the United States. You can Google that company and their politically controversial bends into their TV programming, it speaks for itself. Still, it's commendable that they're responding quickly to keep their ROH ship from sinking.

    Briscoe's final tweet before dumping his Twitter page:

    http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/news/283461

    Jay Briscoe (@jaybriscoe84 via Twitter)I feel very strongly about how and who should teach kids about certain things but I showed poor judgment by using that analogy and I'm sorry


    I have to go re-learn what an analogy is now.

    Matt Bishop (SLAM! Sports)I shake my head when I read people come out in public with things like this. If you want to have those thoughts privately, whatever. Knock yourself out. But what purpose does it serve to threaten to kill people who might not agree with you? That's what I don't get. What drove him to this point?

    In May 2011, I attended an ROH show in Dearborn, Mich., and had a great time. Except one problem. These same Briscoe brothers yelling at the All Night Express and calling them faggots. Not to mention most of the crowd laughing and doing the same thing.

    So, having that in my memory, that makes this statement even worse.

    I can be almost certain that Briscoe doesn't know a gay person. Because if he did, I'm almost positive he wouldn't be saying anything like this. Having seen the issues my gay friends have gone through has opened my eyes. Walking down the street in my college town and hearing someone who was driving by yell "FAGGOT!" out the window at him is something I'll never forget.

    It's devastating to them that they can't legally get married in many states, and that's why it disappoints me so much when someone I liked says something like this. Yes, you may be a Christian, but you were a human first. Have some compassion for your fellow humans and spare us the tired routine.

    Ryan Clark (ProWrestlingSCOOPS.com, via Twitter)For those unaware, #ROH President Cary Silkin is openly gay so you can imagine that he's not happy with @jaybriscoe84's tweets.


    If so, the in-ring groveling planned for Saturday should be especially interesting.

    The incident with Bully Ray, TNA's heavyweight chmpion, blew over back in March, causing TNA and the wrestler (real name Mark LoMonaco) to apologize publicly. Incidentally, Bully Ray's legendary and recently reunited tag team, The Dudley Boyz, are precisely the model the Briscoe Brothers strive to follow. Both tag teams came of age at Philly's ECW arena. Undoubtedly, Bully Ray is Jay Briscoe's mentor.

    This was caught on camera while SpikeTV's TNA show was off-air (starts at 6:15):



    Bully Ray (3/14/2013, transcribed by PWTorch)"Sit down, faggot. Yeah… [inaudible for a second]. What are you gonna do? You ain't gonna do a damn thing. You got punked in your own frickin' town. I'm punkin' you out in front of [Bully leans to the side, looks at who's sitting next to the fan, and says], I'm gonna say your daughter. You got punked! You invented fags, you fag. You should've did something already, you should've did something already, but you ain't doing nothing'. I'm punking you in front of your hometown. You frickin' queer. You shave your frickin' chest."


    http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/kellerstake/article_69383.shtml

    Wade Keller (PWTorch, 3/19/2013)No fan who attends a TNA event, which is marketed to families, should be subject to that. There might be a backstory or a context that explains why Bully picked that fan out, but there was nothing in the video that indicated the fan did anything other than stand there as Bully walked by. He was the tallest fan in the area, so perhaps Bully went after him to prove what a badass he was.

    In any case, that fan was in a no-win situation. Stand there and stare down Bully as he pelted him with one demeaning, derogatory epithet after another, including bringing his family into it, or walk away and perhaps look worse in front of his family and "home town," or punch back, which would result in his being arrested.

    Yes, Bully's gimmick is that he's a bully. There's a way to be a Bully that fits with the tone of the show. It's an honor at some stand-up comedy shows to be called out and made fun of. There are comedians who bring the crowd into it. But I doubt there are many comedians who would respect the level of vile over-the-top crassness and bigoted language that Bully used in that instance, apparently unprovoked. I talked to one experienced pro wrestler whose opinion I respect immensely and who has played both a babyface and a heel in multiple promotions in his career, and he felt Bully went way, way over the line.


    TNA went full-metal PR mode after the tape leaked. Bully Ray had the ol' conditional apology trick on Twitter first:

    Bully Ray (via Twitter)Made an inappropriate comment to a fan in Chicago. If anyone was offended by this...I do apologize. No harm was meant.


    Dixie Carter (not making that name up, she's the TNA Commissioner)Heard @RealBully5150 made inappropriate comments to a fan in Chicago. This will not be tolerated. Sincere apologies on behalf of TNA.


    Then he had this (written for him and) posted on his Twitter:

    "Bully Ray" (via Twitter)"Had a very positive talk with the man I got into a verbal altercation with in Chicago. I personally apologized for my careless choice of words and my ignorance with regard to certain slurs I used. I take full responsibility and once again I apologize to all.


    Exactly like Briscoe, the longtime tag-team performer Bully Ray had just won his first-ever individual championship belt within a month of revealing his homophobia to the public.

    It's sad that Briscoe didn't heed what Bully Ray did before deciding to Tweet what he did not even ten weeks later. It may be that TNA's consequences for Bully Ray were so light (he remained champion and was not reportedly suspended/fined) that the whole situation was completely missed by Briscoe. Of course, that assumes Briscoe has something resembling a conscience.
