It was a solemn night on TNT’s All Elite Wrestling program. Wrestlers all gathered together to honor the late Jon Huber, aka Brodie Lee.
The broadcast opened with Jim Ross using Brodie Lee’s Twitter gimmick, saying, “It’s Wednesday. You know what that means.”
With Huber’s wife and children standing front and center, a ten bell salute honored the former WWE and AEW wrestler, who died this week from a lung issue that wasn’t related to COVID-19.
In the WWE, he wrestled under the ring name Luke Harper. He went on to debut for AEW in March after a successful eight-year run with WWE, and eventually became the leader of the faction known as The Dark Order.
Several wrestlers made comments in remembrance of Huber and some even honored him during their matches.
However, it was an unexpected debut that was the moment of the night.
Lee’s former tag team partner, Erick Rowan, also made an appearance. Rowan held up a sign in the ring that read, “Goodbye for now, my brother. See you down the road.”
Probably the best episode AEW has put since it’s debut.
