The world of professional wrestling suffered a great loss with the passing of Brodie Lee. Many stories about how great of a human being Lee was have been shared and wrestlers continue to pay tribute to him.
Brodie Lee passed away last year on December 26 due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a rare condition that causes lung tissue to become irreversibly thickened and stiff.
Today marks the one year anniversary since Brodie Lee passed away and due to this, the pro wrestling world has sent several tributes as they remember the great man.
This included Big E, who was a great friend of Brodie Lee. Big E took to Twitter and wrote a very emotional note on the one year anniversary of his death.
“One year ago today, Jon Huber, one of my best friends on earth, passed away. I still have a dozen things I want to text him every day. I still remember the way he would type out laughter in text (“ha ha ha.”). I still have the play-by-play of his son’s amateur wrestling performance in my phone, as Jon anxiously & proudly watched on. The dream of driving fifteen minutes to his Tampa house for Sunday dinners when we retired still lingers. There will still never be anyone to fill his shoes. As painfully tragic as this has all been, there’s so much good to reflect on. I’m so grateful that so many people have made a commitment to keeping Jon’s memory alive. I’m so glad he so enriched the lives of so many people in and out of this profession. Brodie (he was always “Brodie” to me), the laughs we shared far surpassed the tears I’ve shed over you. I hope we all continue to honor you in the way you deserve. I still miss you and will always love you, my friend.”
Brodie Lee’s contributions to the pro wrestling world will never be forgotten as fas and peers alike will always remember him one way or the other.
