The Brodie Lee tribute show conducted by AEW has now become the highest-rated wrestling show in the history of professional wrestling. The show got a rating of 9.83 from the users of the Cagematch website.
This news comes from Cagematch.net, which allows fans to vote on wrestling shows for a Top 500 list. The Brodie Lee tribute show has eclipsed a number of top wrestling shows in the 21st century to take the top spot.
All Elite Wrestling performed this tribute on the 66th episode of AEW Dynamite in honor of Brodie Lee. The Exalted One had sadly passed away on the 26th of December 2020, due to a non-COVID related lung issue. This show was meant not only to honor the memory of Brodie Lee but to also honor his family.
The Brodie Lee tribute show has surpassed the likes of Money In The Bank 2011, WrestleMania X-7, NJPW G-1 Climax 23, and a host of other NJPW shows. The show currently sits on a fan rating of 9.83, with the next best being the aforementioned NJPW G-1 Climax 23, which has a rating of 9.77.
Brodie Lee's son will be a wrestling Superstar
One of the things that made AEW's tribute so special, was that his son Brodie Lee Jr., or -1 as he was called throughout the show chose many of the match-ups on the match card. Brodie Lee Jr. was honored during the episode with the AEW TNT Championship belt that his father wore, and prior to the tribute show had signed an official contract with AEW.
This means that when he comes off age, and if he chooses to get into professional wrestling, AEW will be waiting for him to grace their promotion. He is only eight years old, so he still has a long way to go. However, that hasn't stopped him from training with some of the company's biggest Superstars.
Wherever Brodie Lee is right now, he is surely watching over his family and will be extremely proud of what his son has done so far. Hopefully, we will get to see Brodie Lee Jr. transcend his father's illustrious career.Published 02 Jan 2021, 11:58 IST
