AEW President Tony Khan has confirmed this Wednesday's episode of Dynamite will serve as a tribute show for Brodie Lee.
Former WWE star Lee, real name Jon Huber, sadly passed away on Boxing Day due to a 'non-Covid related lung issue'.
The 41-year-old's death has left his AEW colleagues including company president Khan in mourning.
The Fulham co-owner has confirmed that Wednesday's Dynamite will serve as a special tribute to former TNT champion Lee and his family.
A special match featuring three of Brodie Jr's favourite wrestlers teaming up will also take place.
Cody Rhodes, Orange Cassidy and Preston '10' Vance will put rivalry aside to take on Team Taz.
He tweeted: "This Wednesday on Dynamite, we’ll celebrate the life of Jon Huber (Mr. Brodie Lee) with a show including tributes and a special card of matches dedicated to The Exalted One.
"This night is intended to honor Jon, but also this is for Amanda, and their sons Brodie (-1) & Nolan."
And fans were bowled over by the gesture, with one tweeting: "Great to see wrestlers putting aside their differences to honour a great man."
Another said: "Well done guys", while a third added: "Classy and a great way to honour a terrible loss."
Lee – The Exalted One – debuted in AEW in March having made his name as Luke Harper during his seven-year stint in WWE.
Due to the change on Wednesday, Khan confirmed the New Year's Smash editions of Dynamite will now take place in 2021.
The 38-year-old announced it will air across the first two weeks of January 6 and January 13.
