Brodie Lee’s wife thanks AEW for a ‘perfect’ tribute show

New, 19 comments

Last night’s (Dec. 30) episode of AEW Dynamite was dedicated to celebrating the life of Jon Huber, aka Brodie Lee, who tragically died this week from a terrible lung illness.

One consistent theme conveyed throughout the broadcast was just how much Brodie’s family meant to him. His wife Amanda, and their two sons Brodie Jr. and Nolan, were featured during the show, and it’s a night that meant everything to them.

Earlier today, Amanda Huber thanked Tony Khan and AEW for their tremendous effort in making it a perfect tribute to her late husband. Here is the ‘thank you’ note that she posted on Instagram:

“I tried so hard to use photos that captured last night and I’m unsure if photos could do it justice. I’m not even sure I have words that can come close but I’ll try...

The entire show was perfect, from top to bottom. The little Easter eggs, the tributes, the matches, and the moments.

I’m not sure what it looked like on tv, and I’m sure sometime soon, I’ll see for myself. But I can tell you in person, the love in that building last night was real. It radiated all night long. You could feel it in the air. It was devastating and beautiful and a testament to one of the best people to walk this earth.

I will never ever ever be able to thank @tonyrkhan and the @allelitewrestling family enough. No words will ever work. All I can say is that AEW is the most amazing community and Tony is easily the kindest & most genuine person I’ve ever met. He loved my husband. He loves wrestling. He loves AEW. And he loves my family. Real, authentic love.

I’ve been around wrestling a long time. I’ve seen the absolute worst sides of this business. I don’t think I’d believe it either if I didn’t live it myself, but please believe me when I say everything last night from @aewontnt was heartfelt and genuine. Not a single person was disingenuous. Nobody was just “putting on a show”. It was real and raw emotion and just fucking beautiful.

And in the words of @brodielee “Are you crying?! You little bitch.... it’s always fucking something with you @silvernumber1

Yup. All of us. Little bitches.”
