In a recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley discussed his memories of the late Brodie Lee/Luke Harper (real name Jon Huber) who passed away on December 26th at the age of 41 due to a non-COVID related lung issue.

“It doesn’t feel real, it feels like I’m in a very vivid dream and I’m waiting to snap out of it, my brain hasn’t accepted it yet. Right now, I’m completely f****** numb. The first night we wrestled each other, we shared a hotel room together later that night, that was over a decade ago. He was an incredible person. While so many of us would be all hot about some wrestling angle, he would find a way to turn negatives into a positive or an inside joke, he was the exact person you wanted in the locker room.

I was so glad to be around him again in AEW and we wrestled so many times, whether it was on the indies, in The Shield-Wyatt war, six-mans on house shows and European tours, it felt like we were always together. When Tony Khan asked me about Brodie in AEW, I said, hell yeah, I want that match, we could wrestle each other in our sleep, he was so f****** good. 

He wasn’t interested in being famous, this is a guy you would not see at an after-party. As soon as he was done with work, he was going home to his family as soon as possible. He was so proud to be a father and a husband, he loved wrestling and he was great at it, but it was his job. He was lucky enough to love his vocation, but his most important role in life was as a father and a husband.”
