Following last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which was given over as a tribute show to the late Jon Huber (Brodie Lee), AEW President Tony Khan declared Huber’s son, Brodie Lee Jr. as the TNT Champion for life.
The gesture was one of a number of moves by AEW to give the young man some joy after the tragic death of his father. The focus paid to the well-being of the 8 year old Brodie is truly the most wonderful aspect of all of AEW’s efforts to honour the former leader of The Dark Order.
Clearly, those efforts have not stopped now the broadcast cameras have been packed away and neither are they restricted to just AEW talent.
A video has emerged on social media of Lee Jr. Facing off with former NXT Champion Adam Cole in a ‘match’ that looks to be taking place at an AEW company function that Cole would have attended as the boyfriend of AEW talent, Dr Britt Baker.
The video, posted by Baker, sees Lee Jr. hit Cole with his father’s patented Discus Lariat and get the pin over the leader of The Undisputed Era.
Love you Brodie. Lil Brodie is gonna rule the world. ♥️ https://t.co/8JgjN9hkoD— Adam Cole (@AdamColePro) January 2, 2021
As could be imagined, fan reaction to the video has been overwhelmingly positive. Several superstars have also weighed in to express their delight.
If there is any silver lining from Huber’s tragic death, it does feel that it has, at least, temporarily dampened down some of the toxicity in wrestling’s fanbase and just for now, brought fans a little closer together.
