Jim Cornette on his podcast stated that he thought that fan backlash was the key reason that Warner Brothers/Discovery changed their mind on Mark Briscoe. The Briscoes were not allowed to be on AEW programming due to some homophobic comments made by Jay Briscoe in 2013.

While many, including LGBT wrestlers, have stated that they felt that Jay Briscoe wasn’t the man who said those things in 2013. Nevertheless, it’s believed that WBD would now allow them on. All of last year, they featured in several key matches, and not once on AEW programming.

Jim Cornette gave his initial reaction to the news about Mark Briscoe on AEW. “It’s about g*d d*mn time.” 

Jim Cornette further elaborated, “I bet you that they saw the level of animosity that they were getting and somebody somewhere reversed a decision because they probably didn’t want to be- didn’t want it to go on any longer. Because they’d [Fans] narrow it down at some point to exactly who this was and what their name was,”

Mark Briscoe and Jay Lethal had a match in remembrance of Jay Briscoe on AEW dynamite two days. Jim Cornette said of it, “For the first time I think in recorded history I am actually overjoyed at the thought of seeing a match on AEW television.” 

It appears that Mark Briscoe will be allowed to be a featured part of AEW going forward. Is Cornette right? Was it about time?
