WWE Under Fire: Mark Briscoe Issues Bold Challenge on Fox Social Media Account

Wrestling is home to numerous famous phrases rooted in everyday language, occasionally sparking conflicts. The recent trademark dispute over WWE’s attempt to use the term “Yeet” is now joined by another controversy involving Mark Briscoe and the WWE On Fox social media account.

Mark Briscoe took to X (formerly Twitter) to criticize the WWE on FOX account for using the expression “DEM BOYZ” in a caption featuring Bobby Lashley, Montez Ford, and Angelo Dawkins. This phrase has a long association with Briscoe and his late brother Jay. While The Briscoes are commonly known as “Dem Boyz,” the phrase gained broader popularity, especially in African-American Vernacular English, following rapper Wiz Khalifa’s 2014 song “We Dem Boyz.” The connection to WWE was reinforced when Khalifa’s song was featured on the WWE 2k15 video game soundtrack.

Expressing his dissatisfaction, Briscoe tagged WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque, suggesting that the person managing the Twitter account should be fired for their lack of knowledge or slapped for their lack of reverence. Dax Harwood, a former AEW World Tag Team Champion, chimed in, referring to The Briscoes as the “OG Dem Boyz.”

It’s crucial to note that Mark’s brother Jay passed away earlier this year at the age of 38, holding the ROH World Tag Team Championship alongside Mark at the time of his death. In a tribute to Jay, Mark is set to team up with Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler at ROH Final Battle to take on Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli, and Jon Moxley in a Fight Without Honor match.
