Earlier at the Royal Rumble in January, all three members of The New Day paid tribute to their late friend, Brodie Lee, aka Luke Harper with a tribute ring gear. Big E and Xavier Woods even wrestled in the Royal Rumble match in the same gear.

The New Day announced they would auction their Royal Rumble ring gear to raise money for a noble cause, and help Brodie’s wife, Amanda Huber. WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E has now provided an update on how much the auctioned ring gear raised.
