Twitter reacts to AEW Dynamite's Brodie Lee Tribute episode:
The AEW Dynamite episode honoring the life and career of Brodie Lee was perfectly done. The Dark Order completed a clean sweep by winning all their matches, and the emotions were running high throughout the night.
Erick Redbeard, fka Erick Rowan, showed up on AEW Dynamite in one of the evening's major highlights. The show ended with a touching video package that featured photos and clips of Brodie Lee's career.
AEW also had a segment before the video package aired, which saw Brodie Lee's wife Amanda, and son come out to the ring. Brodie Lee Jr. left his father's wrestling boots in the ring before Cody covered it with Lee's scarf. Tony Khan handed over the TNT title to -1 and said that Brodie Lee was the greatest TNT Champion in AEW history.
Dynamite had a flawless balance of in-ring action and thoughtful gestures and tributes, and it was a true celebration of one of the nicest human beings in professional wrestling. Brodie Lee will be dearly missed. May his soul rest in peace.Published 31 Dec 2020, 09:48 IST
