Amanda Huber, the wife of the late Brodie Lee, issued a long statement jumping to WWE’s defense and slamming those fans who are trying to sow divide in professional wrestling.
Amanda said that many people expect her and her family to hate WWE simply because her husband wanted more than they envisioned for him. She said that Jon did not hate WWE and she recognizes that WWE gave her husband a platform to live his dream.
“He was able to travel the world, in his dream job. He got to entertain millions of people. He got to build a beautiful life for our family. He held singles gold there. He won a belt at WrestleMania! He ticked so many ‘Dream life boxes there,” Amanda wrote.
She explained that Jon left WWE because he wanted a little more out of his career and did not leave out of hate, and not because WWE is an evil company, but because his vision did not match theirs.
“The most incredible thing he took away from his time in WWE was the people. The people he carried with him until his very last days. It wasn’t one company vs another. Little Brodie loves wrestling. We still watch wrestling every week. We would tune in to see “Uncle boom-boom” Cesaro and family best friend Big E. People that transcended the lines of friendship into family,” Amanda continued.
She said that the people in WWE watched her kids grow up and loved her husband and welcomed all of them into their arms. “They became my family too. The flood of love I’ve received from the WWE is real and it’s beautiful.”
In a parting shot to the internet wrestling community, Amanda concluded, “In my husband’s final moments, the people that surrounded my family were wrestlers. Companies didn’t matter. Please, I beg you. Stop trying to create a divide in wrestling. Support pro wrestling. Love pro wrestling. Live your life like Brodie in a way that people speak like this.”
