As of today (June 25, 2013), Jay & Mark Briscoe are no longer under contract with Ring Of Honor. Jay Briscoe is still currently the company’s World Champion.
PWTorch is exclusively reporting that ROH’s parent company, the Sinclair Broadcasting Group, only recently became aware of Jay Briscoe’s controversial Twitter comments made in early May when he wrote that he would “shoot any teacher who teaches his kids about same-sex marriage”. ROH quickly went into damage control mode including deleting his Twitter account, having Jay make a public apology and donate his paycheck to an equal rights charity.
Apparently this wasn’t enough. Jay & Mark’s contracts expired and there are no plans to renew them despite Jay Briscoe being the ROH Champion. At the most recent television taping, both Briscoes were written off of television with injury angles. No statement has been made yet on what the status of the World Championship is.
