Friends Forever. WWE recently ran a live event in Rochester, New York, which featured a match between Seth Rollins and Austin Theory for the United States Championship. Rochester also happens to be the hometown of Brodie Lee, who tragically passed away in December 2020.
Following the match, Rollins paid tribute to Brodie and said the following:
“Mr. Brodie Lee…he’s from here. He passed away a couple of years ago around this time, and this is the first time I’ve been here with a microphone in my hand in this city to tell him how much I miss him and how much I love him. I just wanted to say tonight was for him. Every time we are in Rochester, in my heart that means we’re here for him. It’s Saturday, and you know what that means, so do your damn thing and sing my song.”

Prior to his time in AEW, Brodie previously wrestled in WWE under the name Luke Harper, where he was an Intercontinental Champion and a multiple-time Tag Team champion.

You love to see stuff like this. Obviously, Brodie’s passing was a very tragic event, and when superstars from other companies pay tribute to their friends, it’s a really cool thing. He still resonates with the audience today, and this was a very cool moment for everyone involved.
