As previously reported, ROH World tag team champion Jay Briscoe passed away yesterday at the age of 38. According to Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, when word of Briscoe’s passing got to WWE, plans for a segment on last night’s NXT were cancelled.

The segment was set to feature the New Day holding a ‘funeral’ for Pretty Deadly’s title shot. However, after learning what happened, both the New Day and Shawn Michaels decided not to go through with the segment. Instead, Michaels added the tribute to Briscoe in the show, with Vic Joseph announcing his passing on commentary.
