Brodie Lee passed away, but AEW rallied around his family in a big way. Amanda Huber and her sons Brodie Lee Jr and Nolan were welcomed with open arms by AEW during this very tough period. She sent out additional thanks to them today.
Amanda Huber posted on Instagram to say that AEW’s tribute for Brodie Lee was not forced or performative. There was one heartfelt gesture after another. She also made a special note to thank Chris Jericho for making sure that their youngest son Nolan never felt left out.
It’s been a whole week and it still doesn’t feel real.
What does feel real is the love my family has been wrapped in.
The @allelitewrestling family has helped me stand when I thought I was going to collapse, made me ugly sob uncontrollably, made me laugh so hard until I cried (thanks @margaret.stalvey 😉) and surrounded me with SO MUCH LOVE.
Most important of all they have loved my kids. They have embraced my kids and gone above and beyond to make the worst week of their lives a little bit fun. They let a little boy who adores wrestling have SO MUCH FUN. Nobody loves wrestling as much as Brodie and they let him run with it. Including all night iron man matches with almost the whole roster and sleepovers at Aunty @meghalegalgirl10 (where rules didn’t exist until 2021 😂).
Nolan turned 3 a few weeks ago and they made sure he was never once left out. Particularly @chrisjerichofozzy who made sure Nolan would grow up to know how important he is too.
Nothing was ever forced. Nothing was performative. Every step of the way was thoughtful and done with my families best interest at heart.
Brodie Lee’s passing will never make sense, and it will never get easier to take. His legacy will live on in the lives he touches and those who knew the amazing man behind the grizzly demeanor. AEW went all out to help his family, because they are a family.
RIP Brodie Lee
