Tonight’s (Dec. 30) episode of Dynamite was dedicated to celebrating the life of Jon Huber, aka Mr. Brodie Lee.
The final segment of the tribute show began with Cody Rhodes standing alone inside the ring. He fought back tears while explaining that Brodie Lee was a beautiful man who leaves behind a beautiful legacy. He then introduced Brodie’s family, who entered the ring along with AEW’s owner, Tony Khan.
They left Brodie’s retired wrestling boots in the middle of the ring.
Tony Khan then awarded the TNT championship for life to 8-year-old son, Brodie Jr (recently signed to his own AEW contract, in another of the great gestures the company’s made for the family).
If that wasn’t enough, the night ended with a special video package honoring the memory of Brodie Lee. It included some of his happiest moments with family, friends, and wrestlers from both AEW and WWE.
AEW’s tribute show to Brodie Lee was a surreal two hours to experience. There were plenty of moments to cry and smile about; the promotion clearly put a ton of care and effort into producing a unique show that will stick with us all for a very long time.
We’ll all miss you, Brodie.
