• Brodie Lee Was Reportedly In The ICU 2 Months Ago
AEW wrestler Brodie Lee (fka Luke Harper in WWE) passed away at the age of 41 last night due to lung issues (not related to COVID-19). He was off AEW programming for the past 2 months.
While discussing this on Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez shared with listeners what he heard about Lee two months ago.
Below is what he said:
“About two months ago, I was told by somebody that Brodie was in the ICU and this was from somebody that had heard it from somebody else and neither of us could find anybody else who confirm this.
I was concerned and for the last two months, me and this other person were basically asking each other if we had heard anything and neither had.
I know that within AEW there were some people that knew but there were a lot of people that did not know because his family did not want the word out so most people just were not told anything.
I know that there were other people in AEW that had only heard the same thing that me and this other person had heard that at some point he had been in the ICU. The last thing that I heard was two months ago.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 27, 1994) – WCW Starrcade 1994
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on December 27, 1994, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired their annual ‘Starrcade’ event LIVE on PPV from the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
This marks the first ever Starrcade after Hulk Hogan had joined WCW. Most fans don’t know this, but Hulk Hogan was originally booked to wrestle on the inaugural Starrcade in 1983, where he was supposed to team up with Wahoo McDaniel to take on the team of Dick Slater & “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr., but the Hulkster ended up signing with the World Wrestling Federation and was replaced with Mark Youngblood.
In the main event of this pay-per-view, Hogan defended the WCW World Title against his long time friend (who turned against him shortly before the PPV), Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, now calling himself The Butcher.
Below are the results:
– WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Vader defeated Jim Duggan (c)
– Alex Wright defeated Jean-Paul Levesque
– WCW World Television Championship: Johnny B. Badd (c) defeated Arn Anderson
– The Nasty Boys defeated Harlem Heat by DQ
– Mr. T defeated Kevin Sullivan
– Sting defeated Avalanche by DQ
– WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Hulk Hogan (c) defeated The Butcher
