Brodie Lee signed with WWE in 2012 and started appearing in NXT as Luke Harper. He was introduced as the 'first son' of the Wyatt Family, led by Bray Wyatt. He held the NXT Tag Team Championship with Erick Rowan. The Wyatt Family then made their way to the main roster in 2013 and was an instant hit with the fans.
On the WWE main roster, Brodie Lee won the Intercontinental Championship once and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship twice - once with Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton under the 'freebird rule', and then with Erick Rowan as part of The Bludgeon Brothers. On December 8, 2019, Brodie Lee was released from his WWE contract, and he went on to make his AEW debut in March 2020.Published 13 Jan 2021, 00:09 IST
