AEW star Brodie Lee, real name Jon Huber, has passed away at just 41-years-old. All Elite Wrestling announced the wrestler’s death on social media. Huber previously wrestled for World Wrestling Entertainment under the name of Luke Harper. Huber’s wife said that he passed away after battling a “non-COVID related lung issue” and getting treatment at the Mayo Clinic. Lee had been off television since losing the AEW TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes.
“The All Elite Wrestling family is heartbroken,” AEW announced. “In an industry filled with good people, Jon Huber was exceptionally respected and beloved in every way – a fierce and captivating talent, a thoughtful mentor and simply a very kind soul that starkly contradicted his persona as Mr. Brodie Lee.
“Jon’s love for his wife Amanda, and children Brodie and Nolan, was evident to all of us who were fortunate to spend time with him, and we send our love and support to his beautiful family, today and always. Jon’s popularity among his peers and influence on the wrestling world was worldwide and transcended AEW, so this loss will be felt by many for a long time.
“We were privileged at AEW to call Jon Huber a brother, a friend and one of our own.”
WrestleZone sends our condolences to Huber’s friends and family during this trying time.
