ROH Hall Of Famer Welcomes New Baby

It's a bouncing baby Briscoe!

IMPACT Tag Team Champion Mark Briscoe welcomed a child into the world on Monday. Murphy "Big Murph" Pugh was born a month and a half early, but according to an update from his uncle Jay, "he's getting stronger every day."


Mark Briscoe initially shared a photo of the newborn on Instagram. According to Mark, Murphy, who weighed in at a reported 5 pounds and 5 ounces, is "relaxing and doing great...getting ready to crush life on the planet Earth."

Jay & Mark Briscoe were inducted into the ROH Hall of Fame earlier this year, after a lengthy tenure in the company that saw them hold the ROH World Tag Team Championships 12 times. The Briscoes lost the ROH tag titles in a much-lauded feud with AEW's FTR, and shared an uplanned, emotional moment with the team. There were reports at the time that WarnerMedia was against Tony Khan signing the Delaware brothers after Khan purchased Ring of Honor from Sinclair Broadcasting.


The Briscoes have since begun wrestling in IMPACT Wrestling, where they won the IMPACT Tag Team Championships on May 5th at IMPACT Under Siege. They last wrestled for IMPACT on the May 26th episode (taped May 14th), where they teamed with Josh Alexander in a losing effort against Violent By Design. The brothers are also the current House of Glory tag team champions. sends well wishes and congratulations to Mark and the whole Briscoe family, as well as hope for a swift and easy NICU stay for the premature infant.
