It's not that Bobby Lashley and The Street Profits aren't great, but to Mark Briscoe, there's only one team that is "Dem Boyz."
On December 8, the WWE on FOX Twitter account tweeted out a picture of Bobby Lashley, Angelo Dawkins, and Montez Ford and captioned it "Dem Boyz." Before the tragic passing of Jay Briscoe in 2023, The Briscoes were referred to as Dem Boyz for years.
Mark Briscoe got around to responding to the tweet on December 10, tagging Triple H in the Tweed and saying that whoever runs the account should be fired "for lack of knowledge" or at least have the taste slapped out of their mouth for "lack of reverence."
For real?? This shit is hilarious. @TripleH, whoever runs this twitter should probably be fired for lack of knowledge. Or they need the taste slapped out of their mouth for lack of reverence https://t.co/lQupDA91Ds— Mark Briscoe (@SussexCoChicken) December 10, 2023
Mark Briscoe returned to Twitter later in the day to say that he doesn't actually want to see anybody get fired.
Briscoe also admitted that he was just emotionally struck by the use of the term.
Oh yea, thatsss why I quit posting on Twitter lol. Just logged back on…woww. Some of y’all are wild lol. I just miss my brother, that’s all, and I got a little in my feelings when I seen the Fox post. @tripleh, you ain’t gotta fire nobody, times is tough. Love y’all..take it…— Mark Briscoe (@SussexCoChicken) December 10, 2023
The Twitter account is not run by anybody directly employed by WWE and is a FOX-based Twitter account operated by a fan. WWE will be leaving FOX in October 2024 when SmackDown returns to the USA Network.
Mark Briscoe is currently working for AEW. Briscoe will be teaming up with FTR's Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler in a Fight Without Honor against three men who are no strangers to WWE programming, Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli, and Bryan Danielson at Ring of Honor Final Battle 2023.
The match will be held in honor of Jay Briscoe's memory. Learn more about the contest here.
