• Brodie Lee Couldn’t Work Out Properly Due To Lung Issues, Was Hospitalized In Late October
Brodie Lee lost the AEW TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes in a Dog Collar match on the October 7th edition of Dynamite, after which he was written off TV to sell the effects of the match.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer provided some details on what happened to Lee during the break.
He said that during his break, Lee was working out on his Peloton (Indoor Exercise Bike) and got very tired, so much that he couldn’t finish his workout. Shortly after this, the condition affecting his lungs worsened, and he was hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, at the end of October.
AEW was aware of what was going on as Lee’s wife had informed them about it, but the family didn’t want it out publicly.
Unfortunately, Lee passed away this past Saturday night.
