Jonathan Huber was initially been an American professional wrestling champion and actor. He is best known for his brief stint in WWE under the name of Luke Harper. He has also been known to be a member of All-Star Wrestling as Brodie Lee or simply Brodie Lee during his days in the company. He is known as a heel and has had a run of heel status matches throughout his career.
On July 4, 2020, Jonathan Huber died in his home after a long illness. It has been reported that he had been battling a lung issue. This maneuver is widely considered to be extremely dangerous and was banned by WWE a few months later.
When he died, there was no funeral or memorial service and most wrestlers felt it was too much of a loss for him to have another wrestling competition in his life. On the day of his death, however, Raw TV broadcast a video where Raw owner Linda McMahon addressed the crowd regarding the matter. In the video, she indicated that the company was working on a special honor Brodie Lee memory. Several hours later, WWE broadcast another video in which Lees’s daughter Amy confirmed that her father was dead. Several wrestling websites also reported that WWE would no longer be featuring Brodie Lees in any upcoming events.
What really saddened me about all this is that WWE was always my best friend when I was in school. To see Brodie go out without receiving the same amount of cheers as he received when he won the WWE title four years ago cut me to the core. He is the one guy that I have truly admired for as long as I could remember and I was always extremely proud to have worked so hard to make it in the business. I can still remember how scared I was when I first started in the business when I heard John Studd tells me that I had to get surgery on my lung.
I truly feel that Brodie Lee is the type of guy that everyone will remember because of his contributions to the professional wrestling world. His contributions were much greater than most people realize, and his passing truly saddens me. In my opinion, the fact that Brodie died while he was working in the professional wrestling world is the ultimate travesty and something that the whole world can ill afford to happen.
Brodie Lees’ career has spanned over 20 years. He began wrestling at the age of 18 and went on to win several national championships. He then became a world wrestler at the University of Texas, where he made four invasions of the NCAA and became the first-ever wrestler to pin a wrestler in the match. After graduating, he went onto the world scene and did extremely well in the professional wrestling world. He even won the NEVER title once, which is still a record to this day. All of these accomplishments and more have made Brodie a trendy man in the wrestling world.
