Jon Huber, most recently wrestling under the name Brodie Lee for AEW, died today at the age of 41. He was widely loved and respected in the pro wrestling industry and those within it are mourning his loss.
I’m in total shock. Prayers to Amanda & their boys during this time. I can’t believe it. Rest In Peace Jon https://t.co/j7vQM3GCVO— Lexi Kaufman (@AlexaBliss_WWE) December 27, 2020
I love and miss you Jon. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my family. We all love you so very much. You were such a great man. It’s been my pleasure and privilege to know and work with you. Your family is our family now. We will watch over them. Rest now friend. https://t.co/aJ3TUntfoH— Brandi Rhodes (@TheBrandiRhodes) December 27, 2020
This was my Bday, which I share with Doc. Brodie & Miro photobombed us & we all shared a great laugh.— MATT HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) December 27, 2020
I’m shattered over Brodie’s passing. He was full of life with a wife & young children he loved. A devastating reminder of how fragile life is. Rest well, friend.#RIPBrodieLee pic.twitter.com/3p5BH18YIr
When I got stitched up months ago, Brodie was 1 of the first to check on me & ask if I was ok. I replied "I’m too old & beat up to actually get beat up & hurt. I’m fine."— MATT HARDY (@MATTHARDYBRAND) December 27, 2020
That led to Brodie hitting me with his amazing trademark laughter & smile & this pic.❤️
Rest In Power, Jon. pic.twitter.com/0nuY99LsIC
I hope you all get to know someone like Jon. He was the biggest family man & someone who made me laugh daily. I’ll miss him every day for the rest of my life. I love you, Brodie, and I thank you so much for loving me.— Florida Man (@WWEBigE) December 27, 2020
Wow. #RIPBrodieLee. Heartbreaking. He was such a great guy. Thinking of his family, especially with it being the holidays.— Kayla Braxton (@KaylaBraxtonWWE) December 27, 2020

The world has lost a great one.— Kevin (@FightOwensFight) December 27, 2020
One of the absolute best.
In every way. #RIPBrodieLee
I consider myself lucky to have shared the ring, the car for long rides from town to town, and to have been around his wife and children. This one hurts in so many ways. The world lost a wonderful person today. pic.twitter.com/v52h15fDFy— THE KING (@BaronCorbinWWE) December 27, 2020

In utter disbelief hearing of the passing of Brodie Lee. I’m unable to process this. I can’t believe it.— Sami Zayn (@SamiZayn) December 27, 2020
Gutted to hear about Jon passing away. He saved me from a broken neck. He would get so mad when I pulled up a chair for him to sit in and referred to him as ‘Taker-sir.’— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) December 27, 2020
“You’re gonna get me heat, kid.”
Condolences to his family and peers that loved him dearly. #RIPBrodieLee
So much pain comes with losing someone like Jon. But everywhere I look, I see an entire industry paying respect and showing love to him. That alone shows what an incredible man he was. #RIPBrodieLee pic.twitter.com/1QZbUqSS61— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) December 27, 2020
It’s hard to explain to people, and I’m not certain he would want me to, that the biggest, scariest man you’ll ever see on your television is the kindest soul you’d ever meet. A model of a husband and father, and proof that some people are too good for this earth. ♥️ https://t.co/jm6YKlRNBu— Charlotte Flair (@MsCharlotteWWE) December 27, 2020
Our entire brotherhood and industry mourns tonight. In addition to his incredible passion and talent, Jon was above all else, a great man, who loved his family more than words can say. Please keep them in your thoughts. I’ll see you down the road, brother ♥️ #RIPBrodieLee pic.twitter.com/DvTNr3Vo4g— Drew McIntyre (@DMcIntyreWWE) December 27, 2020
Huber was truly loved in the industry and touched the hearts of so many. What stands out the most is how nearly everyone speaks so fondly of the fact that he was such a strong family man, who loved his wife and children deeply.
He will be greatly missed by all.
