The world of professional wrestling suffered great loss with the passing of Brodie Lee. Many stories about how great of a human being Lee was shared over the past few years, as people truly knew his worth. On the third anniversary of his unfortunate demise, AEW has now paid tribute to Lee.

Brodie Lee passed away on December 26th, 2020, due to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a rare condition that causes lung tissue to become irreversibly thickened and stiff. Even now, people continue to remember Brodie Lee.

Brodie Lee was hailed as the greatest TNT Champion of all time thanks to just how wonderfully he was booked as the champion – defeating Cody Rhodes in a squash match to win it.

On the third anniversary of his unfortunate passing, AEW’s official Twitter account re-shared the tribute video for Brodie Lee, set to ‘Ol 55’ by Tom Waits. Naturally, there was not a single dry eye when AEW released the video.
