Randy Orton is undeniably a future WWE Hall of Famer. At the age of 42, his career may be winding down, but there are likely still many years of wrestling within this incredible superstar.
Speaking of incredible superstars, Brodie Lee was not only an amazing wrestler but a great human being. He passed away on December 26, 2020, of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Huber notes within the interview that Brodie would not have been keen on his son, Brodie Lee Jr., starting wrestling so soon. However, BLJ states that he thinks his dad would be happy if he could see how happy wrestling makes him.
Amanda also adds that while Brodie may have “hated it”, deep down inside his heart he would be “over the moon” that BLJ was wrestling. She also addresses fans who felt as if AEW exploited Brodie Lee’s death.
She states she feels like they (AEW) didn’t exploit or take advantage of the family. She believes the company showed such “grace” and “kindness.
She goes on to say that she’s always felt like everything has been done with nothing but love in mind. Huber notes that people tend to be pessimistic and skeptical, assuming things are done with sinister intentions.
She also acknowledges that everybody may do things differently. However, she’s doing her best and trying.
Lastly, Amanda notes there’s a good chance she may screw something up along the way. Everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect.
