The tributes continue to come in for Brodie Lee (real name Jon Huber), one of the most beloved and respected men in wrestling, who sadly passed away on December 26 at the age of 41.
Lee joined AEW in March when he was revealed at The Exalted One, the leader of the Dark Order. Lee gave instant credibility to the group and became one of the highlights on Being The Elite in various skits and segments with the group.
Taking to social media, members of The Dark Order paid tribute to Lee.
Brodie was such a good dude. He bought me the ring jacket to try to help me look like more of a star. He also bought me matching gear just for a idea he had for BTE that we never got to film. The cost was over $1000. These are the pics I sent him after I tried them on. pic.twitter.com/tJD5IeHO6l— John Silver (@SilverNumber1) December 28, 2020
Lucky to have known and learned from not only an amazing mind for the business but a great person outside of it. Brodie Lee will be missed. pic.twitter.com/a9ThNz0StL— Vlan Vngels (@Alan_V_Angels) December 27, 2020
I can not thank you enough for all of your help and the advice you gave me for both wrestling and real life. I’m going to miss you so much.— Alex Reynolds (@YTAlexReynolds) December 27, 2020
After my match against Brandi on late night dynamite, Brodie was the first person I saw when I came to the back. I had no idea he was going to watch the match. He was the the first person to tell me good job and was smiling. It meant a lot to me and I’ll never forget that.— Anna Jay (@annajay___) December 28, 2020
I don't think it's a conversation we had, but maybe it was...— Colt Cabana (@ColtCabana) December 28, 2020
In all this, I can hear Brodie saying to me "make sure you put me over". All the love everyone's giving is just so correct. He was so gregarious & silly and made fun of every situation. #RIPBrodieLee
