WWE doesn’t release very many people anymore, but they recently cut a few Superstars loose. Luke Harper was let go from WWE months after he requested his release from the company. Now he’s Brodie Lee once again and showing up at hockey games with Sammy Guevara.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed Brodie Lee’s current situation. The former Luke Harper could have some options available for him, but AEW seems like the logical choice at this time.
“I have assumed from further back than I should probably say that he’s going to end up in AEW. I don’t know that. I just read the tea leaves because I know he’s underutilized in WWE and then Vince pretty much, you know. I mean Vince pretty much buried him in April.”
“He went public about wanting to get out and I asked people in the company and one of them told me flat-out ‘He’s making the right move. Vince just doesn’t see it in him. He might be the only one who doesn’t see it in him so he needs to leave.'”
Meltzer said for a guy like Brodie Lee leaving WWE his options seem to be AEW or New Japan Pro Wrestling. AEW needs big men and Brodie Lee could be a perfect fit.
Jon Moxley was able to do both which Brodie Lee might be able to do as well. If AEW has a working relationship with NJPW that could definitely make things easier.
