The wrestling world is in shock right now as they are reeling from the death of AEW star Brodie Lee.
The 41-year old Lee, real name Jonathan Huber, passed away suddenly after not being seen on television since dropping the AEW TNT Title to Cody Rhodes back in October.
His wife Amanda took to Instagram today to honor her late husband, revealing Lee had been suffering from a non COVID-19 related lung issue. Lee had been at the Mayo Clinic getting help with the issue, which now seems to be the reason he was removed from television.
Brodie’s wife wrote on Instagram:
My best friend died today.
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. 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. @margaret.stalvey@meghalegalgirl10@americannightmarecody @thebrandirhodes @nickjacksonyb @mattjackson13 @kennyomegamanx @tonyrkhan and the rest of the team at AEW have helped keep me standing and pick up all the broken pieces.
I’ve been surrounded by so much love and incredible people I can’t tag them all but they know who they are and I don’t think they will ever know how thankful I am for them.
