• AEW Officially Signs Brodie Lee Jr. To A Contract
Speaking on What Happened When With Tony Schiavone, AEW commentator Tony Schiavone talked about Brodie Lee’s passing this past weekend and revealed that his son, Brodie Lee Jr., officially signed with AEW and will wrestle for the company when he reaches the proper age for it.
Here’s what Schiavone said:
“Knowing that Brodie was very sick and knowing it was holiday time, and I guess knowing that for him to kick out, it was going to be, I don’t want to say a miracle, but it was going to be very difficult to kick out, they had brought little Brodie to TV – and wrestling is his life. He is 8 years old. He really is a great kid. They made him a member of The Dark Order. They put a mask on him. He came out with a kendo stick. He beat up a lot of people.
This of course was at a TV taping with nobody in the audience. They signed him to a contract. They legitimately signed him to a contract and when he gets of age, he will be with AEW.
When we do TV tapings now, we will have a live show or a taped show, Dynamite, and then we will have sometimes 13 dark matches. We are there until 2 am sometimes. I was sitting back there with Amanda when [AEW] Dark was going on and she said, ‘I’m dead tired. I need to get back and get some sleep but he (Brodie Jr) just loves this so much, I’m going to wait.’ So, she waits until it is all over and he gets involved with the guys and sits in the gorilla position.
He sometimes comes out with a mask on and does some crazy things. It just shows you how the roster loved Brodie and how we are family.”
