Brodie Lee's wife reacts to The New Day's tribute

The untimely death of Brodie Lee was undoubtedly one of the saddest moments of the end of 2020. Few knew of the precarious health conditions of the former TNT Champion and the whole world of Wrestling was left in shock. An athlete with a heart of gold, fondly remembered by his peers in both WWE and AEW.

Even Stone Cold Steve Austin, despite never physically interacting with him, has only spent words of praise towards him, revealing that he spoke to him on the phone when he was in Stamford with the character of Luke Harper.

Outside of the rings, Brodie Lee was a great friend of the New Day and that is why the trio decided to pay homage to him on the occasion of the Royal Rumble, which aired last night. Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E, in fact, wore attire depicting the wrestler's face.

A great gesture that was received with great positivity by fans on social media.

It is not the first time that former couple champions have stopped to commemorate his passing.

In fact, even on the occasion of Raw Talk, they reminded him of his goodness. WWE had been widely criticized for making a very small tribute to him, but then posted a special entirely dedicated to him on the Network. Brodie Lee's legacy within the world of wrestling is currently being picked up by Brodie Lee Jr., the little son who even signed a contract with AEW and an entire episode was dedicated to him to celebrate his birthday.

Once he retired from the scene, Brodie Lee wanted to be a talent scout and help young superstars get into the business. Unfortunately, the terrible lung disease broke his desire, but the memory of him will remain indelible in the minds and hearts of fans and insiders.

Natalya, for example, has decided to rename her finisher in honor of the former member of the Wyatt Family. Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods were all very close to Brodie Lee. The trio had several battles with The Wyatt Family and traveled with Lee for years on end during the latter's WWE run.

When Brodie Lee passed away last year, several WWE Superstars paid heartfelt tributes to him, and it was clear as day how much he meant to Big E, judging by his heartfelt posts about Brodie. On a night when millions of fans were watching the Royal Rumble, The New Day made it a point to wear that special Brodie Lee gear and let the wrestling world know that he is dearly missed.
