On December 30, 2020, AEW paid tribute to the life and legacy of Brodie Lee (Jon Huber) with a moving episode of Dynamite.
The outpouring of love and support that has been shown to the Huber family during this difficult period has been heartwarming to see. Amanda, Jon's wife, has been graciously reciprocating, thanking everyone at AEW for everything they've done and continue to do.
On Sunday, January 3rd, she shared a group of photos and videos on Instagram, along with a special thank you message to AEW's Chief Legal Officer, Megha Parekh. In the full post, which can be seen below, Amanda admits that, at first, she didn't want help from anyone in or around the wrestling business. She didn’t trust them to protect her family's privacy or help without expectations. Megha, however, is the reason Brodie had a fighting chance and transferred to the Mayo Clinic. Brodie trusted her, and Amanda jokes that she has become something of an emotionally supportive weighted blanket.
Ok guys, I swear my IG isn’t always so sappy but I needed to have this said. I’ve typed this out and deleted it a few times because the words aren’t there, but here goes.
This is a @meghalegalgirl10 appreciation post.
When Jon started getting sick, I wanted no help. Especially from anyone in or around wrestling. I didn’t trust them to protect our privacy or help without expectations. Then @meghalegalgirl10 & @margaret.stalvey (who is another one Who deserves a whole appreciation post) swooped into my life. Megha is actually the reason we had a fighting chance & were able to transfer to the @mayoclinic
On Saturday October 31st Megha made phone calls and made the transfer happen. I thought my whole world was collapsing around me and she held up the walls. I had never met her or even heard of her up to that point. She helped in any way possible.
She was the first person I broke down in front of when all of this happened. I’m not a big cryer, it’s just never been who I am. Something about Megha makes me feel safe. It was a simple hug and I lost it. It’s been a running joke that she’s an emotional weighted blanket.
I spent Thanksgiving with her, so I didn’t have to have dinner alone in my hotel. We sat on the beach and talked about things that weren’t my sick husband. We ate sushi for dinner and I cried some more.
What’s most incredible is the way she has come thru for my family, particularly Brodie. She took the absolute worst week of his life and created a safe space for him. She let him have sleepovers and made it a super fun place. I am a *very* protective mom and when things got terrible I wanted my kids by my side 24-7. I didn’t tho. Brodie asked to be with Megha, he felt safe. With zero hesitation, I let him be with her and I felt safer for it too. I knew nobody would be as protective of him as Megha.
I always tell her she’s the coolest person I’ve ever met and she always rolls her eyes. She is highly educated but also has a deep emotional intelligence. She has this Goliath inner strength but there’s a softness there too. She’s everything I want to be as a person. Plus she’s an amazing guitar player.
She’s a diamond in a world of rhinestones --
