Jon Huber, the professional wrestler who fought as Brodie Lee in All Elite Wrestling, died Saturday. He was 41.

Huber died from a lung issue not related to COVID-19, his wife, Amanda, wrote in an Instagram post.

“The world saw him as the amazing [Brodie Lee] but he was my best friend, my husband and the greatest father you would ever meet,” Amanda Huber wrote. “No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now.”

Huber, a Rochester, N.Y., native, fought for multiple years in WWE as Luke Harper before joining AEW.

“In an industry filled with good people, Jon Huber was exceptionally respected and beloved in every way — a fierce and captivating talent, a thought mentor and simply a very kind soul that starkly contradicted his persona as Mr. Brodie Lee,” wrote AEW in a statement.

Wrestlers and fans shared their love for Huber on Saturday.

“I’m so deeply sorry for the loss of Jon Huber,” Stephanie McMahon, daughter of WWE’s Vince McMahon, wrote. “We bonded over the love of our children. He was a true family man.”

Huber is survived by Amanda and their two children, Brodie and Nolan.
