Jim Ross gives an update on Brodie Lee’s cause of death. The AEW star recently passed away. His death was sudden and tragic.
AEW star Jonathan Huber aka Brodie Lee’s recent passing away sent shockwaves in the wrestling industry. There was an outpour of emotions and tributes on social media with friends and fans mourning the unexpected loss of a man taken too soon.
In recent times however, an article suggested that the wrestler may have passed away due to Covid-19 and his family and WWE were lying about it. Amanda Huber, Brodie’s wife has since taken to social media to slam the claim and rubbish the reports.
Fans however, still have no idea about the cause of death. While the family have been given their privacy in the matter by the fans and rightfully so, AEW commentator Jim Ross has now shed some light on the topic on his Grilling JR podcast.

“I still don’t know what — I haven’t seen of or even heard of an autopsy. All I know is that he had double lung failure. His lungs were so bad he could not qualify for a transplant” JR revealed.
“So, after as I heard the story; whether it’s totally accurate or not I don’t know. They took him off his machine to see if he could kick out himself. That was about the only chance he had. It just obviously did not work, so… a sad time for all of us. Again, he impacted so many of us on our roster that kind of went off the radar and so he will be very missed.”
AEW’s latest episode of Dynamite was presented as a tribute to the late wrestler. The show was praised by fans and critics alike and was a fitting parting gift to a phenomenal wrestler who was just as amazing outside of the squared circle.
