Brodie Lee Jr And Amanda Huber Discuss Carrying The Legacy Of Brodie Lee

Brodie Lee Jr. is signed to AEW, though his contract doesn't become official until he turns 18.

Brodie Lee Jr. is the son of Brodie Lee, who tragically passed away in December 2020 from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Lee Jr, who is a member of the Dark Order and goes by -1, has been featured on AEW television since the passing of his father, cutting promos and whacking wrestlers with his kendo stick.

Speaking to Men's Health, Brodie Jr. and his mom, Amanda, discussed his future in wrestling.

"[Being involved] helps me because, like, I am ‘Carrying the Legacy’ of my dad,” said Brodie. “I do it because I love it. And my dad did it.”

Amanda has responded multiple times to critics who believe her son is being used by AEW or that she's "pimping him." In the interview, Amanda said, “That’s not it, either!” (AEW has handeled the situation with) such grace and such kindness ... that I personally don’t feel like they’ve exploited him, or taken advantage of us. Everything’s always felt to me like it’s done with nothing but love. I think people are skeptical and pessimistic and assume that it’s a lot more sinister than it is. Again, everybody would have a different way of handling this. I’m doing my best. I’m trying. There’s a good chance I’m screwing something up along the way."

It was revealed that while Brodie isn't earning a salary from AEW, he will gain access to an account filled with royalties from his AEW T-shirts and other merchandise when he turns 18.

Amanda has said in the past that they will not push wrestling on Brodie and that school comes first.

When asked what Brodie would think of his son wrestling, Amanda replied, “He would tell you he absolutely hates it. But I could tell you that deep down, in his heart, he would be just bubbling over the moon.”

When Brodie Jr was asked about the same topic, he said, “I bet if he was here, he would probably change his mind,” he says. “He just wanted me to be happy. If he were here, to have him see me be in the happiest place, me being in the happiest mood, I feel like that would brighten up his day.”

Brodie Jr was on the July 6 episode of AEW Dynamite, where Evil Uno proclaimed that Dark Order is forever despite recent departures from the company.
