AEW President Tony Khan has announced that tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite will be dedicated to Jon Huber (Luke Harper / Brodie Lee), because it will take place in Brodie’s hometown.

“It’s Wednesday. You know what that means. Tonight #AEWDynamite is Live from Rochester, home of Mr. Brodie Lee. Tonight we’ll have a great show dedicated to his memory with a special card including a huge TNT Championship match, a title forever synonymous with his indelible legacy.”
Tony also set up a 16-man Tag Team Match in honor of Brodie:
“In recognition of Mr. Brodie Lee, tonight Live on TNT on #AEWDynamite in Rochester I’ve asked the gentlemen of Dark Order to put differences aside & team with @orangecassidy under the leadership of Brodie Lee Jr. to take on their enemy Matt Hardy & the HFO in a 16 man tag match!”

• Old School Wrestling Manager Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 87th birthday of Old School Wrestling Manager Skandor Akbar (Real name: Jimmy Wehba).
Akbar made a name for himself as a Wrestler and later on as a manager in Fritz Von Erich’s World Class Championship Wrestling territory.
After the demise of the promotion, he then followed most of the WCCW roster to the Global Wrestling Federation, which also had its home in Dallas, Texas, and is considered the unofficial successor.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
