All Elite Wrestling has apparently signed the 8-year-old son of the late Brodie Lee (real name Jon Huber) to a contract.
The signing was revealed by Ton Schiavone on the latest edition of Schiavone’s “What Happened When” podcast. The AEW announcer said that Huber’s son was offered a contract with the company during a recent taping at which he was present.
“They had brought little Brodie to TV who is just … wrestling is his life and he’s eight-years old. He really is a great kid,” Tony said to the podcast’s host Conrad Thompson.
“They made him a member of The Dark Order. They put a mask on him. He came out with a kendo stick. He beat up a lot of people and this was of course is a TV taping, nobody in the audience.
“They signed him to a contract,” Tony continued. “Legitimately signed him to a contract. When he gets of age, he’ll be with AEW and they’ve just taken care of him and he follows guys around all the time in the back and he becomes a part of us.”
Tony spoke very fondly of Huber’s son, and spoke about how much fun he likes to have backstage.
“He gets involved with the guys and sits at the Gorilla Position and comes out sometime with the mask on and does some crazy things,” he said. “It just shows you how the roster loved Brodie and how we are family.”
As we previously reported, Jon Huber (who was known as Luke Harper in WWE) passed away on December 26th due to an issue with his lungs.
AEW will celebrate the life and career of Mr. Brodie Lee on a special edition of Dynamite tonight (Wednesday, December 30th).
