Sami Zayn And Kevin Owens Flew Out To Jay Briscoe’s Funeral Immediately Following WWE Royal Rumble

Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens rushed from the main event of The Royal Rumble to Delaware for Jay Briscoe’s funeral.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn flew directly after the Royal Rumble to attend the funeral.

“There were so many people who came in from all over the country. I mean, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn flew in from the Royal Rumble. Straight there.

They were out, when did the Rumble end? Eastern time, that Rumble ended after midnight right? It ended at 12:20 [AM] Eastern, they were in San Antonio, they were in Delaware, which probably doesn’t have an international airport so you’re probably flying in there for something that started at 1.”

AEW also held a Jay Briscoe tribute show on last week’s episode of Dynamite, which turned out to be a very emotional episode for fans. Jay Briscoe will forever live on in the hearts and minds of his family, friends and fans and that’s all that matters.
