Condolences, well wishes, and memories have been pouring in from all over, both from the wrestling industry and fans, for Jon Huber (Brodie Lee/Luke Harper). Below, we are going to feature some of the best from Twitter that have been posted.
We start with Bray Wyatt’s. Jon and Bray were like brothers, having worked together for 7 years beginning in 2012. This is from Instagram and due to the settings, I have to copy/paste his quote into the article. It has been modified to censor language:
“You were my best friend. My brother, my partner, my Terry Gordy. We changed this whole game because we refused to do it any way but OUR way. We were always at our best when we were a team I think we both knew it. We fought like brothers because we were. I’m so g-d pissed. This isn’t how it was supposed to be, it was supposed to be us fat, bald and useless running Wyatt Family spots in high school gyms in our 70’s.
Where do we go now? What do I do knowing I’ll never hear your condescending sarcasm as I am riding high. I miss you so f-ing much already. I would do anything just live through our worst moments again I can’t believe you’re gone. I’m so sorry brother. I’m so sorry. You will always be a part of me, whether I like it or not without you everything is different and I hope Amanda truly knows that I am here not just to say it but because I love them too.
I will make sure your son knows the incredible man you were. Not the legends people will tell but the real you that very few people got to see. I promise I’ll put him over clean in dark matches when he’s old enough just like I promised. 😉I’m hurting so bad. I wish I had a chance to say goodbye. But then again, it’s Saturday and you know what that means…. save me a seat next to you wherever you are, that’s where I belong. I’ll be there when it’s my time. Goodbye forever Brodie. I love you

The thing I remember about Luke was how respectful he was. On several occasions he destroyed our announce table but when he was done, my phone was untouched, my notes and run sheets undisturbed and my monitor intact. Then he would look back and give me a wink! RIP Luke pic.twitter.com/OONHG3w0dN

It’s Saturday. You know what that means…
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! pic.twitter.com/6XXl8Kr6iW

I invite you to click the following from Big E and read the many memories in his thread:
I hope you all get to know someone like Jon. He was the biggest family man & someone who made me laugh daily. I’ll miss him every day for the rest of my life. I love you, Brodie, and I thank you so much for loving me.

This was one of my favorite pieces I had the pleasure to do for @AEW so far, setting up @JonMoxley vs @ThisBrodieLee for the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing 2020. #RipBrodieLee https://t.co/eIwONzSWyT

The following was taped Dec. 16th or 17th (likely 16th since it was his birthday) after AEW finished airing:
AEW did this privately on the 17th(?).
A lot of fans don't know this as most AEW fans tend not to be interested in reading the spoilers. pic.twitter.com/u8DsPB1faL

Another thread worth clicking and reading:
When you say the name “Brodie Lee” the 1st thing I think about is how excited he was when he was expecting his 1st son and how often he posted about him on Facebook. You could tell he genuinely loved being a dad.

Brodie told me to never change. I will hold that forever. ❤

I just wanted to quickly say how much Jon loved his family. He never stopped talking about them. He was a great dad which I saw firsthand on the bus to our match. He was so excited to show his son that he could still go hard & he did just that. He loved you so much, I’m so sorry.

Heartbreaking is an understatement.

My Tryout Match was for Harper to get cleared at the PC. I asked what the finish was he said “When he doesn’t kick out”. I was so nervous he winked and said “Finish” as I went down for the count. From then on we always greeted each other with that word “Finish”. #RIPBrodieLee 💔 pic.twitter.com/cV42ZcR7F6

And the final one, that sums it all up for everyone:

Again, these are just a select few of the literal hundreds, if not thousands, of stories being shared about his private life.
Jason’s Jest: I am completely heartbroken and at a loss for words. This just doesn’t seem real to me at all. I want to send out love and peace to his family in this very difficult time. I am amazed at the outpouring of support from those all across the wresting industry. I mentioned backstage that there were two sides to Jon: We had the side we knew as fans, being the tough & ruthless guy that couldn’t wait to destroy you in the ring. Then we had the private, family and backstage side, where he showed nothing but love and care for others around him. He will be missed.
