Pro Wrestling Tees revealed on Twitter today that CM Punk will be donating all proceeds from sales of his merchandise on their site over the next month to the family of the late Brodie Lee. This is a wonderful gesture from the former wrestling superstar following the announcement by AEW yesterday that Lee had tragically passed away at the age of 41.
Thanking Punk, the Chicago-based company said:
“CM Punk has informed us that all proceeds from any of his http://ProWrestlingTees.com/cmpunk merch sales for the next month will be donated to Brodie Lee’s family. Thank you @CMPunk”
Mick Foley would also follow up by saying “count me in” and telling Pro Wrestling Tees to give all of his January proceeds to Brodie Lee’s family.

Back in 2013, Punk was involved in a short feud with the Wyatt Family on WWE programming alongside Daniel Bryan. Brodie Lee, then known as Luke Harper, was a member of the group and had several encounters with CM Punk during this time. These were mainly in matches where the Straight Edge Superstar tagged with Bryan to take on Harper and fellow Wyatt family member Erik Rowan. However, there was also a great singles match on Raw between Punk and Harper, highlights of which can be viewed below.
Everyone at Inside The Ropes is heartbroken to learn of Jon Huber’s passing, and we send our condolences to all of his friends, family and fans at this time.
Brodie Lee was a well-loved and respected figure, and the wrestling community continues to mourn his loss. There has been an outpouring of tributes and memories across social media.
