As the wrestling world copes with the sudden demise of Jon Huber, also known as Brodie Lee, some people are already helping out his family. Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has once again shown why people respect him so much in the wrestling fraternity. All proceeds from the sale of his merch from Pro Wrestling Tees will go to Brodie Lee’s family.

This was an incredibly kind decision by CM Punk which will also be very beneficial for Brodie Lee’s family. Lee is survived by his wife Amanda and his two children Brodie Lee Jr. and Nolan.

Lee was a loving husband and an absolute model father to his children. He will be remembered for being not just an incredible wrestler but also the perfect family man.

Brodie Lee died at 41, and his wife Amanda revealed the cause of death to be a non-COVID related lung disease. It was this health issue that caused him to take time off after his brutal dog collar match against Cody. That was his last match ever, and it certainly lived up to the illustrious legacy of Lee.

Punk’s contribution was one of the most genuine and kind gestures that a pro wrestler has ever done. It is testament to the fact that wrestlers are absolutely not like the characters they play in the ring.

We can say the same for Brodie Lee. He played a sadistic mercenary who led a spooky cult in AEW but was one of the nicest guys outside the ring.

The world remembers Brodie Lee

Condolences poured from across the North American wrestling scene when Brodie Lee passed away. The men and women who knew him as Luke Harper, the people who knew him as Brodie Lee, and those who knew him as Jon Huber lit up social media with tribute posts and pictures. Many Superstars shared text message conversations with him including Mustafa Ali and Cash Wheeler.
