Amanda Huber & Brodie Lee

Amanda Huber has taken for social media to reflect on the last time that she was able to speak with her husband Brodie Lee before he sadly passed away.

Jon Huber, better known to wrestling fans all around the world as Brodie Lee passed away on December 26th 2020. It was later confirmed that the cause of death was idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Posting on social media, Amanda Huber has reflected on ‘losing’ Brodie Lee one year ago. In the post she explains that although, Lee survived for just over another month, November 22nd was the last time she was able to speak to him. In the emotional message she opened up about her thoughts and feelings at the time.

One year ago Iost him.

I know what you might be thinking… He died on December 26th. Why is November 22nd relevant?

November 22nd was the last time he was awake. The last time i was able to look into his eyes. The last time he attempted to talk to me. He cried and told me how scared he was. It was the last time he told me he loved me.

After days of promising progress and hope, it was all washed away. The crash. The re-sedation. The follow up surgeries.

I knew that day he was gone.

Everyone around me said to keep fighting and keep hoping.

Deep in my soul I knew.

I’ve never wanted so badly to be wrong about something.

I spent the next several weeks praying for a miracle.

Miracles come in different forms I guess.

I’m alive and every day I am grateful for the air in my lungs and the heartbeat in my chest.

I miss you. Every. Single. Day.

She went on to say that being so open about her grief has been her way of processing what happened. In closing she urged people to get help should they need it.

Brodie Lee began his career in 2003, making his way to WWE in 2012. As Luke Harper he performed largely as a member of the Wyatt Family alongside Erick Rowan and Bray Wyatt. He went on to win multiple tag team championships as well as the Intercontinental Title before leaving the company in December 2019.

Reverting back to his Brodie Lee moniker, the star signed with AEW March 2020, later winning the TNT Championship.
