The Ring of Honor legend was killed in a car accident His two daughters were seriously injured. Wharton is primarily focused on Informing the public about the progress of girlsBut his latest video also covers Jay’s younger brother and tag team partner Mark.
recent being elite revealed that The Young Bucks and Christopher Daniels were in text communication with Mark on AEW’s show last Wednesday. Wharton actually spoke with the younger Pugh/Briscoe brother, and described him as “the chipper I’ve ever heard him” in their latest conversation about half an hour before last night’s live stream. Wharton described the entire family as “upbeat” despite what they were going through.
“One thing that stuck out to me [from his talk with Mark], she said, ‘I can’t imagine going through this without being a believer.’ He, and you reading the Bible, understand that our time on earth is but a small glimpse of our existence. [Mark] Understand that we are going to see [Jay] Again and he hopes to use this as a tool to inspire people to go to heaven with us, using Jamin’s untimely death as a witness that almost all people can come to heaven with him.
“He sent a text that said, ‘God is on the throne. That’s all I got, brother.’ The man has been through a lot and still has faith. He’s going to carry the Pugh and Briscoe names proudly.”
Wharton also noted that he himself has not spoken to anyone at AEW, “According to the family, they have been nothing but top notch and supportive.”
For the Pugh girls, the news continues to trend in the right direction. Gracie, Jamin’s 12-year-old daughter who her mother initially feared might be paralyzed, has sensation in her legs but they are not moved below the knee. His pain is “much more under control” and he’s been able to “play some games and watch movies all day” when not working with physical and occupational therapists.
Gracie was able to “spend some quality time” with her younger sister, Jelly. The nine-year-old had her feeding tube and a scar attached to her stomach removed and “is able to eat and drink as much as she wants”. It has helped improve her mood as she works with therapists. “He now just has to worry about his braces and external fixation on his leg,” Wharton said.
