AEW is taking care of Brodie Lee's family.
The wrestling world tragically lost Jon Huber (Brodie Lee in AEW) on December 26 as he passed away after battling a non-COVID lung illness. Jon is survived by his wife Amanda and his two children Brodie (referred to as Brodie Jr or -1) and Nolan.
Fans may have seen Brodie Jr, 8, throughout the years as he's appeared in various interviews and videos with his father, including on UpUpDownDown.
On a recent episode of What Happened When, Tony Schiavone revealed that AEW will be taking care of Huber's family and especially his son Brodie Jr.
"Knowing Brodie was very sick and it was the holidays and knowing it was going to be very difficult for him to 'kick out,' [AEW] brought little Brodie to TV and wrestling is his life. They made him a member of the Dark Order, they put a mask on him, he came out with a kendo stick and beat up a lot of people. They signed him to a contract, legitimately signed him to a contract. When he gets of age, he'll be with AEW. They have taken care of him. He follows guys around in the back and becomes part of us. He gets involved with the guys, sits in Gorilla position, comes out with the mask and does some crazy things. The roster loved Brodie and we are family," said Schiavone.
Schiavone noted that sometimes AEW Dark tapings will go to 2 a.m. and Amanda Huber will stay there all night because Brodie Jr. won't want to leave.
On Wednesday, AEW will pay tribute to Jon Huber with a special episode of Dynamite. Brodie Lee Jr. helped put together the card. You can view the entire card by clicking here.
