Bray Wyatt paid tribute to the late Brodie Lee, also known as former Wyatt Family member Luke Harper, during his WWE WrestleMania match with Randy Orton.
Lee tragically passed away in December at the age of 41 following a battle with a non Covid-related lung issue.
In his match with The Viper in which The Fiend reverted to his previous version, Wyat would perform the late Brodie Lee’s hand gesture before saying his now iconic “Yeah, yeah, yeah” catchphrase.
This is awesome.

Bray Wyatt’s physical tribute follows a wonderful social media post immediately after Lee’s passing, calling the late AEW star his brother.
“You were my best friend. My brother, my partner, my Terry Gordy. We changed this whole game because we refused to do it any way but OUR way. We were always at our best when we were a team I think we both knew it. We fought like brothers because we were.”
The former Universal Champion continued, saying, “This isn’t how it was supposed to be, it was supposed to be us fat, bald and useless running Wyatt Family spots in high school gyms in our 70’s. Where do we go now?”
Wyatt heartbreakingly continued, “You will always be a part of me, whether I like it or not” saying how he hopes Amanda – the wife of the late Brodie Lee – “truly knows” that he is there for her and vowed to make sure your Huber’s son knows the incredible man he was.
Amanda Huber bravely detailed the timeline of Brodie Lee’s passing. You can read that in its entirety here.
