• AEW Signs Brodie Lee’s Widow Amanda Huber
Tony Khan has officially signed Amanda Huber (Brodie Lee’s widow) to an All Elite Wrestling contract.
She will be running the AEW Community Outreach program.
Here’s what she wrote about getting this opportunity on Instagram:
“Words can’t express how excited I am right now.
Over the past few months I’ve been really struggling with my identity. I love being a mom more than anything. I love that I spent 9 years as Jon’s wife. But feeling like I am just a mom & widow over being Amanda has been a struggle. I love those parts of me, but I don’t want my whole identity wrapped in being a mom & widow.
I’ve been trying to find my footing the past few months. Some days I’ve stumbled and fell down. The team at AEW has held me up. The opportunity to work with these people and for this incredible company is a dream come true.
My goal in life is to raise my boys to be good people. I firmly believe that the only way to achieve this is leading by example. Using my platform and doing amazing things in communities makes me so excited.
I am so excited for the future. Thank you @tonyrkhan @americannightmarecody @thebrandirhodes @mattjackson13 @nickjacksonyb @meghalegalgirl10 @margaret.stalvey and the rest of the @allelitewrestling team for trusting me with this opportunity 💛 🖤
*Editing the post to add I will be running the AEW community out reach program because in my excitement, I forgot to mention it.”
GREAT day – Please welcome @MandaLHuber to The Community Outreach Team. @TonyKhan has placed her on the best team as we approach each community AEW performs in and make strides to do good when the cameras are on…and more importantly, when they’re off. Welcome Amanda! pic.twitter.com/mNvu98la6H
