The Briscoe Brothers are the professional wrestling tag team of Jay and Mark Briscoe. They are currently wrestling for the American promotions Ring of Honor (ROH), Full Impact Pro (FIP), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), as well as occasionally for the Japanese promotion Pro Wrestling NOAH. They are currently the reigning ROH Tag Team Champions.
Their wrestling careers have seen them work in promotions all over the United States and the world, beginning in the northeast United States with the East Coast Wrestling Association and Combat Zone Wrestling. They have won tag team championships in nearly every promotion they have worked for, and are seen as a consistent draw and one of the best tag teams on the independent circuit.
Best known for working in Ring of Honor, the Briscoe Brothers are the only wrestlers currently working for the company who were featured on its first-ever event in February 2002. Other than an 18-month absence from August 2004 to February 2006, the brothers have been focal points of the company throughout its history, feuding with some of their biggest stars and holding the ROH World Tag Team Championship a record eight times as a team. On December 29, 2007, during their fourth reign, the Briscoe Brothers became the longest reigning tag team champions in ROH history. The record was broken three years later by The Kings of Wrestling.
Famous quotes containing the word brothers:
“In certain respects, particularly economically, National- Socialism is nothing but bolshevism. These two are hostile brothers of whom the younger has learned everything from the older, the Russian excepting only morality.”
—Thomas Mann (18751955)
