WWE Superstars pay their tribute to Brodie Lee

Several WWE Superstars paid tributes to Brodie Lee, including Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, Mustafa Ali, Tyson Kidd, and Jason Jordan in a recent video released by WWE on YouTube.

Xavier Woods couldn’t control his tears as he spoke about Brodie. Woods said he was the better person for getting the opportunity to wrestle him, spend time with him, and know him as a person. Tyson Kidd too shared a story of how Brodie made him feel good when he was injured.

Mustafa Ali recalled how he would always take funny ribs at Brodie that would make him mad. John Morrison said every moment he spent with Brodie was memorable and awesome. There were heartfelt tributes from Kofi Kingston, Keith Lee, Jason Jordan, and Adam Pearce too.

From the looks of it, the video was filmed before or after Monday Night Raw. This means they made the video but held off for some odd reason.

Raw kicked off with only a graphic for Jon Huber, aka Luke Harper/Brodie Lee. Fans expected more from WWE as Jon spent almost a decade with the company.

WWE finally released the video before the New Year and the emotions from the Superstars in it speak volumes about how great Brodie Lee was. It is also speculated that they let AEW honor his legacy first. He touched countless men, and there will be only a few staunch family men like him.
