Brodie was genuine, fun, and warm every time I got to spend any time with him. He loved wrestling and his family. I’m lucky to have gotten to know him a little bit.
This one hurts. RIP Brodie. https://t.co/JTNN5hwaHr

I loved EVERYTHING about Brodie. He was the fucking best person.
Only thing I can say is I'll miss him.

I have only known Jon for a short time. In that time he was a joy to share a locker room with. We bonded by over him constantly trying to force the black panther handshake every time we greeted each other. I can’t believe he’s gone. #RIPBrodieLee

I’m devastated by the loss of Jon Huber, known to fans as Mr. Brodie Lee, formerly Luke Harper. Jon was a great man. His family came first, his loving wife Amanda & their sons Brodie + Nolan. He loved wrestling & was great at it, he loved you fans. Please keep him in your hearts.

When i started wrestling I picked the name Brody not only for Bruiser Brody but also because of Brodie Lee. He was someone that truly pushed the boundaries of a big man wrestler .Though i never got to meet him I looked up to him not only as a wrestler but also a family man. RIP. https://t.co/Tp4kOX8yB9

Gutted to hear about Jon passing away. He saved me from a broken neck. He would get so mad when I pulled up a chair for him to sit in and referred to him as ‘Taker-sir.’
“You’re gonna get me heat, kid.”
Condolences to his family and peers that loved him dearly. #RIPBrodieLee
— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) December 27, 2020

This is all a grotesque nightmare on a scale none of us can possibly comprehend, this year has done nothing but take and I think we are all empty, tired and drained. Sleep well my friend, thank you so much for the road trips and the advice through the years. You were golden.
