Brodie Lee fka Luke Harper's career and legacy
Brodie Lee began wrestling in 2003, and he worked for several promotions on the independent circuit. Lee made a name for himself as a high-flying brawler in companies such as Ring of Honor, Dragon Gate and Chikara, before getting signed by WWE in 2012.
In WWE, Brodie Lee got renamed Luke Harper, and he was paired up with Erick Rowan and Bray Wyatt, collectively known as the Wyatt Family.
The Wyatt Family, as we all know, went on to become one of the top WWE factions of the past decade. During his time in the WWE, Luke Harper won the IC title once. He also held the SmackDown Tag Team Championship twice and the NXT Tag Team titles on one occasion.
Lee would get released from the WWE in December 2019 due to creative frustrations, and he would end up joining AEW earlier this year.
Lee was revealed as the leader of the Dark Order, and he won the AEW TNT title in a one-sided squash match against Cody. Lee's last pro wrestling match would incidentally also be against Cody, in which he dropped the TNT title.
Brodie Lee was a loved and respected man in the industry who helped several performers across various promotions. He touched the lives of many professional wrestlers, and you'd find it hard to find a better human being than him in a business that is often unforgiving and ruthless to the talent.
More than his accolades, Brodie Lee will be remembered for his selfless contributions to the business.Published 29 Dec 2020, 02:15 IST
