(We are losing a lot of athletes this week…Kevin Greene, K.C. Jones, Danny Hodge, Ty Jordan, and now Luke Harper/Brodie Lee.)

Tony Khan with AEW/All Elite Wrestling:

@TonyKhan
I’m devastated by the loss of Jon Huber, known to fans as Mr. Brodie Lee, formerly Luke Harper. Jon was a great man. His family came first, his loving wife Amanda & their sons Brodie + Nolan. He loved wrestling & was great at it, he loved you fans. Please keep him in your hearts.

from www.wikipedia.com:
Jonathan Huber (December 16, 1979 – December 26, 2020) was an American professional wrestler. He was best known for his time in WWE, under the ring name Luke Harper (and briefly Harper), and in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) as Mr. Brodie Lee.

From 2003 to 2012, Huber worked on the independent circuit under the Brodie Lee ring name, most notably in Chikara, Squared Circle Wrestling (2CW), Ring of Honor (ROH), Dragon Gate USA (DGUSA), and internationally for Dragon Gate in Japan. Signing with WWE in 2012,[11] he assumed the name Luke Harper and was sent to WWE’s developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), before debuting in NXT as a member of The Wyatt Family. For most of his WWE career, he was closely associated with Wyatt Family members Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan. The Wyatt Family won the NXT Tag Team Championship and the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship. Harper and Rowan, later known as The Bludgeon Brothers, also held the SmackDown Tag Team Championship on another occasion. During a brief singles run, Harper became a one-time WWE Intercontinental Champion…

Huber departed WWE in December 2019, subsequently making his AEW debut in March 2020 as “Mr.” Brodie Lee and revealing himself to be “The Exalted One”, the previously anonymous leader of The Dark Order faction, and won the AEW TNT Championship in August of that year.

    Brodie Lee Was Reportedly Hospitalized For Two Months

    from http://www.wrestlinginc.com:/and Dave Meltzer:
    Brodie Lee [real name Jon Huber] was hospitalized since the end of October until he eventually passed from a lung ailment on Saturday, according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Radio.

    Meltzer noted that Lee’s wife, Amanda, kept everyone in AEW informed of Lee’s worsening conditioning but didn’t want the news to leak out. AEW brass and the talents honored Amanda’s request.

    After dropping the AEW TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes in a Dog Collar Match in early October, the idea was to write off Lee from TV for a few weeks to sell his injuries from the brutal match, added Meltzer.

    It was during his time off when Lee began experiencing symptoms of his lung ailment. According to Meltzer, Lee couldn’t finish his workouts on his Peloton bicycle at home and he couldn’t figure out why he was unable to go through his routine workout regiments.

    Shortly thereafter, towards the end of October, Lee’s lungs stopped working and he was rushed to a clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. The situation “got grave and AEW was aware” of the severity of Lee’s condition, added Meltzer.

    As reported earlier, Kenny Omega dropping the AEW World Championship [in a dark segment] to Brodie Lee Jr. on AEW Dynamite was AEW’s way of paying tribute to Lee, who passed away less than a week later.
