    That's absolutely shocking. Rest in peace.

    Only 41 too, very much remember him more for been Luke Harper in WWE but have heard amazing things about the Brodie Lee character. Devastating


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,274 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    That is tragic may he RIP.


  • Registered Users Posts: 53,824 ✭✭✭✭Headshot


    I'm nearly in tears after reading of Jon's passing

    What horrible news, absolutely gutted for his family.

    You listen to his interviews (last one one on AEW unrestricted) and just came across so well and just a really nice bloke

    A very sad day for the wrestling world

    Was he sick ?

    Nobody knows outside the AEW bosses what the story is

    It was top secret as to the reason he was not wrestling but we know why now that was something seriously wrong :(:(


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,022 ✭✭✭ConcertKing


    Am absolutely gobsmacked here!

    Absolutely loved him since he joined AEW and his dominating win over Cody when he won the TNT Championship gave me goosebumps.

    Am in disbelief here.

    May Jon Huber a.k.a. Brodie Lee Rest In Peace.

    Reminding me of Chadwick Boseman's sudden tragic passing earlier this year

    Whatever the reason for Jons passing its very tragic :(:(

    His wife posted on IG that it was a non Covid related lung issue...

    Terribly sad. RIP.


  • Registered Users Posts: 773 ✭✭✭TimesArrow


    Jesus. Speechless. So terribly sad. RIP


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,505 ✭✭✭✭Xenji


    Looks like it was due to a non Covid related lung issue according to his wife.

    Very sad

    Illness is so cruel, he always seemed in great shape and was only performing weeks ago :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,767 ✭✭✭Always_Running


    Shocked. Looked the picture of health and still had a good decade or more of wrestling career left. RIP Brodie Lee.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,376 ✭✭✭Riddle101


    Absolutely shocking about Brodie Lee, and just after Christmas as well. Rest in Peace.

    Terrible year for young wrestler deaths really. Brodie Lee, Shad Gaspard, Hana Kimura.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,534 ✭✭✭KKkitty


    As wrestling fans we're not unaccustomed to premature deaths of wrestlers. In saying that any wrestlers dying way before their time is heartbreaking. I don't even want to imagine how his family are right now. Thank you Luke Harper, thank you Brodie Lee.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    The tributes pouring in for Brodie/Jon tell you everything you need to know about the man. Beyond shocked at this news and genuinely feel sorrow for his family and friends. On a professional level, I’m glad he got to have a good run and show some personality and character.

    Sleep well big man.


  • Registered Users Posts: 435 ✭✭undertaker fan 88


    Gutted beyond belief. Met him mania week a few years back. A utter gentleman.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,073 ✭✭✭✭RobbingBandit


    He was always great craic in WWE as part of the Wyatt Family but his antics in AEW were fantastic. That match with Cody was epic.

    I'm absolutely shocked by this hope he went without pain.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,124 ✭✭✭The White Wolf


    Christ, it's not just because of coronavirus that people want to see the back of 2020 so badly. Such an unbelievably ****ty year. I thought Chadwick Boseman would be the only shock of this ilk in 2020 but this ****ing year has decided to work overtime in its final days. Bull****.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,301 ✭✭✭✭gerrybbadd


    I dont think I can quite capture just what I really want to say about Brodie. Such a shock.


  • Registered Users Posts: 955 ✭✭✭Officer999


    Terrible news to wake up to this morning.

    Bray Wyatt’s tribute was really touching too


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,956 ✭✭✭✭Omackeral


    It seems everyone from an array of companies from backyards to big leagues say pretty much the same things about him. First and foremost that he was all about his family. That’s something I love to hear. Also that the man was humble and a gentle giant. Genuinely hit by this one
