JAY BRISCOE: NJPW and NOAH hold 10-bell salute tribute to Jay Briscoe

Posted on 1/21/123 by Colin Vassallo

A beautiful tribute to Jay Briscoe was
held on night two of Wrestle Kingdom 17:
NJPW vs NOAH at the Yokohama Arena
earlier today.

The main show opened with all the NJPW
and NOAH stars coming out and
surrounding the ring for the tribute.
Hiroshi Tanahashi and Naomichi Marufuji
stood in the ring and each held a
portrait of Briscoe. A 10-bell salute
was then held and after that was done,
his theme song “Reach for the Sky Boy”
was played in the arena.

Jay held the IWGP Tag Team title once
with his brother Mark and the NEVER
Openweight Six-Man Tag Team titles with
his brother and Toru Yano while in New
Japan Pro Wrestling and also held the
GHC Junior Heavyweight Tag Team title
with Mark in NOAH.
