    It’s the word ‘forever’ that makes this so impossible to process.

    Accoridng to Big E, he always said 'goodbye forever' as a joke before hitting the road.

    Some sad stuff right there.

    The amount of tweets about him proves how good he was to people. Even Vince McMahon recognising Jon's passing is something I didn't expect. AEW retweeting almost all mentions of him is a testament to how much they care about him. Wrestling organisations forgetting about rivalries and banding together in this moment is amazing yet heartbreaking.

    Are all this week's shows taped already?
    Just thinking about any possible tributes would be inserted rather than be part of the show.
    And what to do about Bray?

    They could probably do it on Being The Elite - cut his best moments from whichever episodes he appeared in, and compile all the bloopers or out-takes from filming into one massive tribute episode.

    Also ProWrestlingTees have confirmed that ALL proceeds from his merch sales, either from them or the AEW shop will go towards his family.

    Very sad

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

    Was he in ring wrestling with AEW until recently?

    He used to say that to everyone when he was going back to spend time with his wife and kids. He said it because he wanted the time he spent with them to feel like forever.

    So ****ing sad. So horrible.

    Life can be so cruel.

    Jesus Bruce Mitchell is some prick. Not 24hrs removed, and he's all but calling Lee's wife a liar, saying that it had to be Covid related and AEW are covering it up.

    Basically guessing that Jon had Covid and suffered lung complications as a result

    What an absolute tool. His son was at taping 2 weeks ago like. If Jon had Covid, does anyone, in their right mind, think that the mother would allow her child into similar surroundings, where Bruce is alleging Jon caught Covid?

    His body isnt even cold for christ sake. Im sure considering the time of year it will be a while before any cause if death is truly determined.

    Bruce can surely not know for sure how Jon died nor can he say with certainty that Covid contributed to his death.

    Bruce needs to fcuk off. Who cares how he died, the man who was clearly adored by so many has passed. Let people come to terms with it before you start mouthing off.

    Can wrestling journalists not use their Brains and show a bit of compassion. Meltzer did the same when Bruno died. ****ing tone deaf.

    I don’t even want to read about that article like what’s the point in it let the man rest in peace and give his family and friends time to grieve

    I litertally dont get it. Its ridiculous to even think like this hours after the mans death. Disgusting behaviour

    And yet I checked the person in question and he’s being praised for his “heroic” article. There may well be questions to answer but not 24 hours after the event. Time and place comes to mind.

    Never heard of Bruce Mitchell and after that will never listen/read a word he says

    What a tool


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,168 ✭✭✭The White Wolf


    The family I'm sure in time will look for their own answers. It should go without saying that everyone else can wait.

    I don't follow Mitchell much but he comes across as a clown here, isn't he the one that an old popular poster of ours gets into it with on Twitter all the time?

    Jesus watching that BTE ep all I could think was that the guy had some pipes on him with all that roaring.

    Listening to the clip Alvarez uploaded from Wrestling Observer Live, Meltzer said something first happened when Brodie was training. He got very tired during his workout and couldn't understand why.

    This has hit me as hard as Owen's and Eddie's death

    Okay. I was thinking it had to be something very recent because with
    WWE and AEW presumably he had medical check ups and if there was an issue it would have been picked up before than. I’ve been reading the tweets from his fellow wrestlers and he’s Owen hart level of being a good person. I’ve not seen anything less than glowing praise and the main emotion is genuine shock. That’s rare in a business which at times can be less than perfect. I also think why it’s hit people harder is because unlike other wrestlers who’ve died young(baring Brian pilman) there’s been a reason or something that could be pointing to from their past which would lessen the awful “why.”

    I'd be curious to hear how he died. Like a seemingly fit 41 year old dying all of a sudden is shocking.

    Was he a smoker by any chance?
    I'd normally not assume a top level wrestler smokes due to the level their at. But Orton smokes..... Or at least had (video out there)

    Apparently he was hospitalized for a few weeks after losing the TNT title for a lung issue

    Illness takes so many forms and for some people it does not affect them physically. Roman Reigns still looked in terrific shape when he was sick a while back.

    Sad to hear this. I liked him in the Wyatt Family.

    This Wednesdays show will celebrate the life of Jon Huber.

    The night is intended to honour Jon Huber and his family.

    Will be very emotional.

    Every member of Dark Order will be in a match which is great

    And they let -1 (Brodie Jr) pick a match which is really sweet.

    Jesus it will be a tear jerker of a night.

    Class act by AEW. Glad theyve gone with a tribute show and letting -1 pick a match is a nice touch.

    It would shock me if this isnt the most watched dynamite ever. Must see TV that no one wishes they were watching.

    AEW appear to be doing their bit by paying tribute and taking care of the family.

    I will be tuning in for the begining of Raw just to see the tribute.
