Shocking news rocked the wrestling world this past weekend. AEW wrestler, Brodie Lee has passed away.
Wrestler Jon Huber‘s wife Amanda, wrote Saturday on Instagram about the star’s passing. He was 41 years old.
“I never wanted to write out those words. My heart is broken. The world saw him as the amazing @brodielee (fka Luke Harper) but he was my best friend, my husband, and the greatest father you would ever meet,” the grieving widow said. “No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now. He passed surrounded by love ones after a hard fought battle with a non Covid related lung issue. The @mayoclinic is literally the best team of doctors and nurses in the world who surrounded me with constant love. On top of that, I can’t express my love and admiration for the way @allelitewrestling has treated not only my husband but myself and my kids.”
Huber was part of the World Wrestling Entertainment organization 2012-19, then moved to All Elite Wrestling this year.
“WWE is saddened to learn that Jon Huber, known to WWE fans as Luke Harper, passed away today at age 41,” the WWE tweeted Saturday night. “WWE extends its condolences to Huber’s family, friends and fans.”
Brodie Lee enjoyed main event status on AEW over the past year competing against Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title and even holding the TNT Championship Belt.
