    The tributes illustrate that he was such a well liked and respected guy, more than anything he seemed to be wonderful Dad and Husband, RIP.

    Loads of talented people posting great fan-art on Reddit over the last few days. I think this is my favourite...

    That was absolutely superb by AEW, what a tribute. They knocked it out of the park

    Absolutely beautiful tribute at the end and a wonderfully put together show in the memory of Jon Huber!

    In bits here after it.

    Rest In Paradise

    'Mr' Brodie Lee!

    Celebration of life was right, just a beautiful 2 hours....

    That show had class written all over it, wonderful tribute.

    The song in the tribute video is a Tom Waits song. He's notorious for suing when it comes to using his material it seems.

    So Tony Kahn bought the rights to the song.

    They're retiring the current TNT title design as well, having given it to Brodie Jnr, and in Jon's honour

    That was superb

    Mick Foley is following CM Punk and also donating the sales of his shirts in January on ProWrestling Tees to Brodies family.

    I particularly loved the ending of it, giving the belt to negative 1 Brodie Jr

    Schiavone confirmed there's going to be a new TNT belt too

    That video tribute was something else.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    ALL of his appearances on BTE.

    Hopefully there’s a ten bell salute tomorrow night on smackdown with whatever roster members want to be there. I know there’s meant to be a “war” between wwe and aew but it’s not a war really. But the very end of the video above will get you.

    I'm hoping now that AEW have done there tribute episode that the WWE will put together one of there amazing tribute videos for Smackdown tomorrow night.

    I think that’s that’s what will happen. I mean WWE had the acknowledgment on raw and aew did from what I’ve seen did a superb job and fair play to them. Hopefully wwe will do theirs tomorrow night and that way both wwe and aew have celebrated his life and it’s not a pissing contest.

    This has been the toughest death in wrestling I've had to process. There's been many sad deaths like:

    Warrior dropping 24 hours after making amends with WWE.

    Eddie being cut down in his prime.

    Owen being absolutely robbed of his life.

    But this has been a whole other level of tough. This generation of wrestlers has done everything right, learning from the mistakes of previous generations. This sh1t just doesn't make sense. Brodie was only 8 years older than me.

    Well with warrior and Eddie there was something of a paper trial for lack of the better term to why they might have died but it didn’t make it any less tragic but the why wasn’t as stark.

    He’s only five a bit years older than I am. I mean why this hits the wrestlers more is because he’s not someone a generation ahead of some of them, he’s a genuine contemporary of ALL of them. As you say the wrestlers of today live a much healthier lifestyle than past generations. That’s not to say they don’t enjoy themselves but they have other outlets other than the vices of the past.
