It was an absolute honor to interact with him via this board the few times that I did.

I just got an e-mail on it. Wow. Am blown away. Met Jack a few times at CAC and he really was one of the classiest guys I've ever had the privilege of meeting. This is another hard one to take.

RIP, Jack.

Damn. Jack Brisco was not only one of the greatest to ever step in the ring, but he showed he was a true good guy with his interaction with our board.

BONG!

RIP Jack Brisco

I didn't even relize he was in bad health. I guess I missed that. This took me completely by surprise.

Jack Brisco was a one-of-a-kind wrestler. He was technical, but far from bland. It's one thing to be technical, but it's another thing to be technical AND be able to make the crowd care about what's going on in the ring. Mr. Brisco was able to accomplish both.

Man, I hate this. [Frown]

R.I.P. JACK BRISCO

I grew up watching him compete during the 70's. He was truly a great one amongst all the wrestlers I've ever seen. I had the chance to exchange a few questions and answers here on this board. I will always be grateful for those moments.

I truly believe one of the finest traits any of us can have is "class." Jack Briscoe reeked of class in every part of his being.His ring work was nothing short of legendary.Imho one of the top five greatest to ever carry the strap.A true CHAMPION in and out of the ring.This ole world could sure use a lot more the likes of one Jack Briscoe.

Jack had to have a triple bypass last week.

Actually that's not quite right. Dave has more accurate details:
