His wife took to her Instagram account to announce that Brodie Lee has passed on.

Read: My best friend died today. I never wanted to write out those words. My heart is broken. The world saw him as the amazing @brodielee (fka Luke Harper) but he was my best friend, my husband, and the greatest father you would ever meet. No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now. He passed surrounded by love ones after a hard-fought battle with a non-Covid related lung issue. The @mayoclinic is literally the best team of doctors and nurses in the world who surrounded me with constant love.

On top of that, I can’t express my love and admiration for the way @allelitewrestling has treated not only my husband but myself and my kids.

WWE Superstar, Drew Mclntyre has also reacted to the sudden demise of Jon Huber, describing him as a great man.

In a series of tweets, he wrote – Our entire brotherhood and industry mourn tonight. In addition to his incredible passion and talent, Jon was above all else, a great man, who loved his family more than words can say. Please keep them in your thoughts. I’ll see you down the road, brother.


Jon Huber made his first major debut working for WWE as Luke Harper, finding success in the Wyatt Family stable and in the Bludgeon Brothers tag team.

He started off his wrestling career as a backyard wrestler, performing under the ring name Huberboy #2 with the likes of Colin Delaney and his real-life brother, who worked as Huberboy #1.
