A new documentary celebrating the life and career of Brodie Lee will premiere in his hometown of Rochester, New York, the night before AEW heads to the city.
‘This Is Brodie Lee’ has been made by Wrestlevision in association with Classy Wolf Media and charts the rise of the real-life Jon Huber from his early days to a global wrestling superstar.
A blurb accompanying the trailer of the film reads:
“Documentary movie on the life of Jon Huber, known worldwide as Brodie Lee/Luke Harper. Tells the story of his life in wrestling, from a backyard to the Western NY indy scene, to the big time in WWE and AEW – from the fellow wrestlers who shared the road with Brodie.”
Brodie Lee competed for many years in WWE as Luke Harper, making his main roster debut as a member of The Wyatt Family. Harper captured the WWE Intercontinental and SmackDown Tag Team Championships during his time in WWE which came to an end in late 2019.
In March 2020, now known as Brodie Lee – the name he had used on the independent scene – he debuted in All Elite Wrestling as ‘The Exalted One’ and leader of The Dark Order. Lee’s debut came on the first AEW Dynamite of the pandemic, and only one week before the company was set to debut in Lee’s hometown of Rochester, New York.
The cruellest twist of fate meant Brodie Lee never got to compete for the company in Rochester as the pandemic kept the company confined to Jacksonville, Florida for the rest of 2020. Lee wrestled his last match in October 2020, losing the TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes in a Dog Collar Match. The wrestling world was heartbroken to hear that Lee had passed away in December following a short illness.
The premiere takes place at the Movies 10 in Henrietta, New York on Tuesday 28th of September with tickets available to purchase and reserve here.
