The death of AEW and WWE star Brodie Lee has truly shocked the entire pro wrestling world. Now tributes are pouring in from countless wrestlers, who have their own stories to tell about this amazing man.
Big E Pays Tribute To A Man With Boundless Kindness
Big E paid tribute to his old friend Brodie Lee several times this week. In particular, he recalled how Brodie supported him after the George Floyd murder.
“Brodie cried with me when I cried after George Floyd was killed. He & his incredible wife bought @emiliosparks new podcasting equipment because they believed in his dream. He’d text & call people he barely knew when he heard they were sick or grieving. His kindness was boundless.”
E also mentioned how Brodie would always say goodbye with “Goodbye, forever.” And while this is awful in hindsight, Big E is still glad he got to say goodbye to him.
Before he’d leave to hit the next town or drive home, Brodie would almost always end the conversation with a joking “goodbye, forever.” I always rolled my eyes. As godawful as this has been, I’m glad I got to say goodbye. I never had a better friend.

That’s the kind of people they are. That’s the kind of people this world needs. That’s the kind of person I need to be. I love you Jon. Thanks for everything. This Knob Creek is for you. pic.twitter.com/PpA5xFyVQk
