Brodie Lee passed away at the age of 41 on December 26, 2020, due to lung-related issues. Since then the entire pro wrestling world paid tributes and shared various stories that revealed the kind of person Brodie Lee truly was. He was a man who touched the lives of so many people.

AEW also held a tribute show in honor of Lee last week, which was certainly a massive success. Some pro wrestlers announced that they will change the name of their finisher in order to honor Brodie Lee. Last week, Natalya mentioned she will change the name of her spinning Lariat to pay tribute to Lee.

Now it seems Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler of FTR will be doing the same as well. Dax Harwood took to Twitter and revealed that they will be changing the name of their finisher, The Goodnight Express.

Harwood revealed that their finisher will now be known as “Big Rig” as it was one of Brodie Lee’s nicknames backstage.


“After speaking with Amanda, and getting her blessing, we have decided to change the name of The Goodnight Express to “Big Rig”. This is our way of keeping a bit of his legacy alive in professional wrestling. We love you, Brodie. Can’t wait to see you again.”

This was certainly a wonderful gesture by FTR as they honored their dear friend Brodie Lee.
