In some tragic and shocking news, AEW has revealed that Brodie Lee, formerly Luke Harper in WWE, has passed away. AEW tweeted about Lee only minutes ago, leaving a touching tribute to the former TNT Champion.
“The All Elite Wrestling family is heartbroken. In an industry filled with good people, Jon Huber was exceptionally respected and beloved in every way – a fierce and captivating talent, a thoughtful mentor and simply a very kind soul that starkly contradicted his persona as Mr. Brodie Lee.”
Jon’s love for his wife Amanda, and children Brodie and Nolan, was evident to all of us who were fortunate to spend time with him, and we send our love and support to his beautiful family, today and always. Jon’s popularity among his peers and influence on the wrestling world was worldwide and transcended AEW, so this loss will be felt by many for a long time.”
We were privileged at AEW to call Jon Huber a brother, a friend and one of our own.”
Prior to his death, the leader of the Dark Order was out recovering from a reported ankle injury. Brodie Lee was 41 years old. We here at Wrestling-Edge send our prayers and well-wishes to his family and loved ones.
