Seth Rollins paid tribute to Brodie Lee at Saturday’s WWE live event in Rochester, New York, the hometown of the late, great wrestler.
After losing to United States Champion Austin Theory in the main event, Rollins cut a promo paying tribute to Lee.
“Mr. Brodie Lee…he's from here. He passed away a couple of years ago around this time, and this is the first time I've been here with a microphone in my hand in this city to tell him how much I miss him and how much I love him. I just wanted to say tonight was for him. Every time we are in Rochester, in my heart that means we’re here for him. It’s Saturday, and you know what that means, so do your damn thing and sing my song.”
He wrestled as Luke Harper in WWE, where he found success as an Intercontinental Champion in a singles run, and as part of The Wyatt Family, where he was a former Tag Team Champion with Erick Rowan.
The beloved pro wrestler passed away at the age of 41 due to a non-COVID-related lung issue on December 26, 2020.
