Former WWE Superstar Fandango has paid tribute to the late Brodie Lee, capturing the leader of the Dark Order’s likeness in ink.
Brodie Lee competed in WWE for several years, first debuting on the main roster alongside Erick Rowan and Bray Wyatt as The Wyatt Family in what was one of the most eagerly anticipated segments at the time. Known then as Luke Harper, he went on to capture the Intercontinental Championship but tag team success was never far away.
Harper reunited with Bray Wyatt and a newcomer to The Wyatt Family, Randy Orton to capture the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. When that group fell apart due to the feud between Wyatt and Orton, Harper soon found himself reunited with Rowan, but this time they were to be known as The Bludgeon Brothers. It was as part of this team that Harper and Rowan first held main roster gold together as they became SmackDown Tag Team Champions as well.
Harper left WWE towards the end of 2019 and made his shock AEW debut in March 2020 as Mr. Brodie Lee, the leader of The Dark Order. In AEW Lee sought and captured the TNT Championship from Cody Rhodes, before losing the title back to Rhodes in a Dog Collar Match. Sadly that bout was the last of Lee’s career after he was struck down with an illness before tragically losing his life in December 2020 at the age of forty-one.
On social media, Brodie Lee’s former WWE colleague Fandango shared an image of his permanent memorial to The Exalted One, along with his special catchphrase:

Fandango had his fifteen-year relationship with WWE brought to an end when he was released from his WWE contract on the 25th of June, 2021. The former NXT Tag Team Champion is going by the new name of Dirty Dango on the independent scene.
