Brodie Lee passed away at the age of 41-years-old. Pro wrestling fans will never forget him, and that also goes for those who worked with him. Chris Jericho sent out an Instagram post to remember Lee after his passing and it included an incredible story.
Le Champion posted a throwback image from a WWE tour of Mexico. WWE never printed t-shirts for Brodie Lee. This was something that he called attention to publicly.
Chris Jericho said that someone printed a bunch of Luke Harper t-shirt, and they all wore them to support their brother. They also snapped a star-studded photo in the process.
Backstage in Mexico in 2015. Brodie was annoyed that he didn’t have his own merch t-shirt, so one of the brothers got a bunch made in his honor. We all wore them in tribute to the dude, cause everybody loved him. Just a wonderful man and a kickass worker….we never had a bad match and I probably worked with him 50 times. I was a big fan of his and even helped bring him into @allelitewrestling…where he did the best work of his career in a very short time. I’m gonna try to find that goofy f*ckkn shirt and if I do, I’m going to hang it on my wall so I can be reminded daily what a legit great person looks like. Thanks Jon…you were one in a million and a true brother’s brother.
Brodie Lee is gone, but he will never be forgotten. 2020 was a terrible year for a lot of reasons. Lee’s passing was a terrible hit to take as we wrapped up a year that was already so full of sadness.
Lee’s wife Amanda released a statement after his passing. She said he died of a lung related issue, but it was not COVID-19 related.
