AEW Dynamite notes: Jon Huber tributes, Brodie Jr., New Year’s Smash

All Elite Wrestling celebrated the life and career of Jon Huber (Brodie Lee) with multiple tributes throughout the show.

The life of Jon Huber (Brodie Lee/Luke Harper) was celebrated on AEW Dynamite. As the show went on the air on TNT, AEW released a Brodie Lee t-shirt and all of the proceeds are going to the Huber family. That can be found at this link.

At the conclusion of the show, Cody Rhodes shared a few words about Jon Huber and his experiences with him throughout their years together in the business. Cody then introduced Amanda and Brodie Huber, wife and son of Jon. They were followed out by AEW President Tony Khan and 10 (Preston Vance) of Dark Order. Jon Huber’s wrestling boots were placed in the middle of the ring and his son was given a TNT Championship belt as Tony Khan referred to Jon as the greatest TNT Champion and his son as the champion for life. A video package was the final tribute to air on the program.

Jon Huber’s son Brodie was in the crowd for the duration of the show. During the match featuring John Silver, Hangman Page and Alex Reynolds taking on Santana, Ortiz and MJF, Brodie hit MJF over the head with a kendo stick.

Lance Archer was in action on Dynamite and he sported similar gear to what Jon Huber wore in WWE under the Luke Harper persona.
