The untimely passing of Brodie Lee, formerly known as Luke Harper in WWE, has left the entire wrestling world shocked and deeply affected. Several wrestlers and other personalties from WWE, AEW, and other promotions have paid their respect to Brodie Lee, including WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon.
Tonight's episode of Monday Night RAW kicked off with WWE showing a still image of Brodie Lee, remembering him. However, there was no video package or a 10 bell salute. Former WWE Superstar and RAW Tag Team Champion Brian Myers (fka Curt Hawkins) took a shot at WWE for the same, stating that they should have given a proper tribute to Brodie Lee on RAW.
No 10 bell salute? No video package? This man was beloved by his peers & we’re all grieving hard. This isn’t right.
