The news coincides with a new documentary This Is Brodie Lee, which premiered this week in Rochester.
Brodie Lee debuted for AEW last year as the Exalted One of the Dark Order. His impact was felt company-wide as his presence instantly elevated the group before destroying Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship.
Lee passed away in December of last year to the shock of the entire wrestling community. Since his passing AEW celebrated his life with the highly emotional and heartwarming Brodie Lee Celebration of Life edition of AEW Dynamite on December 30th, 2020.
The TNT Championship that Brodie Lee proudly held will be defended on AEW Dynamite with dominant champion Miro defending his title against Inner Circle’s Sammy Guevara. Guevara confronted Miro after The Redeemer had sought to continue his attacks on Guevara’s best friend and master of the tornado DDT, Fuego Del Sol.
Also announced for AEW Dynamite in Rochester, New York:
- Cody Rhodes and Lee Johnson vs. Matt Sydal and Dante Martin
- Adam Cole vs. Jungle Boy
- Penelope Ford and The Bunny vs. The Dark Order’s Anna Jay and Tay Conti
