AEW wrestler Brodie Lee, unfortunately, passed away last week at the age of 41. On the latest episode of the What Happened When podcast, AEW announcer Tony Schiavone revealed how everyone in the company was informed about the untimely passing of Brodie Lee. He stated that there was a company-wide zoom call where everyone in AEW was told about the tragic incident.
“I think everybody did a great job keeping it close to the vest as the old cliché goes. We all knew it didn’t look good but we were all hoping he would kick out. The day that he passed away, we received an email that we were going to have a company wide zoom call in 30 minutes and I knew that if we were going to have a zoom call that quickly, something was bad. So, they told us about that.” (h/t WrestlingNews.co)
