• “His lungs were so bad that he couldn’t qualify for a transplant” – Jim Ross Gives Some Details On Brodie Lee’s Illness
During the Q/A session of his Grilling JR podcast, AEW commentator Jim Ross revealed what he knew about Brodie Lee’s illness, who passed away a week ago due to non COVID-19 related lung issues.
Below is what JR said:
“Always smiling. Funny guy. Great sense of humor. That’s why I said, I’m going to work today and I’ll tell these young guys, ‘Hey, it doesn’t hurt to laugh. As I said, laughter is a good medicine, and he made you laugh, didn’t he?’ ‘Oh yeah [they reply].’ Remember those times. That’s a hell of a lot better than him not being able to kick out of his issues.
I still don’t know what… I haven’t seen or heard of an autopsy. All I know is he had double lung failure. His lungs were so bad that he couldn’t qualify for a transplant, so after, as I heard the story, whether it’s totally accurate or not I don’t know, that they took him off his machine to see if he could kick out himself as that’s about the only chance he had.
It just obviously didn’t work, so [it’s] a sad time for all of us. Again, he impacted so many of us on our roster that kind of went off the radar and so he’ll be very missed.”
