The New Day’s Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E paid tribute to the late Luke Harper (Jon Huber, aka Brodie Lee) with their custom ring gear at last night’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Lee’s wife Amanda Huber took to her Instagram Stories and reacted to the tribute.
“My favorite people,” she wrote. “Words can’t express the love I have for these 3 incredible men I’m lucky to call my friends. Just, wow. I had no idea they were doing this gear and I’m in tears.”
Big E later revealed that The New Day is auctioning off their custom Royal Rumble gear with proceeds going to the Foodlink NY non-profit based out of Brodie’s hometown, which is Rochester, New York.
“The city of Rochester meant a lot to Jon. @FoodlinkNY is a Rochester-based nonprofit that’s dedicated to feeding those in need in the area. We’ll be auctioning off our Royal Rumble gear with all of the proceeds going to @FoodlinkNY,” he wrote.
Amanda reacted to the auction announcement and said she’s lucky to call them her friends.
“The men in The New Day are in a whole different league of humans. The kindness and thoughtfulness is astounding to me. I’m so beyond lucky to call them my friends,” she wrote. She continued, “Big E is a true gem of a person and I’ll never be able to accurately express my love and gratitude for him.”
The first piece of the gear is now live on eBay. Kofi’s jacket currently has a top bid of $2,025.00.
The Brodie gear was designed by Johnathan Davenport of Design Mode Studios. You can see his concept art below.
