• WWE Stars React To AEW’s Tribute For Brodie Lee
AEW paid a great tribute to the late Brodie Lee on the final episode of Dynamite for 2020.
The show started with a 10-bell salute with the entire AEW roster and management (along with Brodie’s wife and kids) on the stage, and ended with Brodie’s son placing his father’s wrestling boots in the middle of the ring and being awarded the TNT Championship by AEW President Tony Khan, followed by a video package.
Here’s how WWE stars reacted to this tribute show:
What a perfect tribute show to a beautiful man. I’m just so glad I got to be friends with someone so many loved. #BrodieLee

Time to go now, friend. As much as no one wants you to go. Till the next time #RIPBrodieLee

Emotional night. It’d be nice if we could all continue the positivity and love moving forward. We shouldn’t need a loss to remind us of what we have together.
