Seth Rollins paid tribute to Brodie Lee at Saturday’s WWE house show in Rochester, New York.
Following his match, Rollins cut a promo paying tribute to Lee in his hometown.
“He passed away a couple of years ago around this time and this is the first time I’ve been here with a microphone in my hand in this city to tell him how much I miss him and how much I love him,” Rollins said. “I just wanted to say tonight was for him, every time we are in Rochester, in my heart, that means we’re here for him. It’s Saturday, and you know what that means, so do your damn thing and sing my song.”
Lee, who had runs in AEW and also in WWE under the name Luke Harper, passed away on December 26, 2020 from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. He had been out of action since that October, losing the TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes in what would be his final match.
