What Happened to Jon Huber? Wrestler Dies of Non-COVID Lung Issue


By now, many wrestling fans have heard what happened to Jon Huber. The pro wrestler — known in the ring as WWE’s Luke Harper and AEW’s Brodie Lee — died on Saturday, Dec. 26, of a “non-COVID-related lung issue,” leaving behind a wife and children.

“In an industry filled with good people, Jon Huber was exceptionally respected and beloved in every way — a fierce and captivating talent, a thoughtful mentor and simply a very kind soul that starkly contradicted his persona as Mr. Brodie Lee,” AEW observed in a tribute to Jon, who was only 41 years old at the time of his death.

Jon Huber’s wife, Amanda, announced the news.

Amanda Huber, Jon’s wife, told Instagram followers on Saturday that her “best friend” died that day. “I never wanted to write out those words,” she wrote. “My heart is broken.”

She went on: “The world saw him as the amazing @brodielee, [formerly known as] Luke Harper, but he was my best friend, my husband, and the greatest father you would ever meet. No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now. He passed surrounded by love ones after a hard fought battle with a non-COVID-related lung issue.”

In her caption, Amanda praised the Mayo Clinic — “literally the best team of doctors and nurses in the world who surrounded me with constant love” — and All Elite Wrestling — who “helped keep [her] standing and pick up all the broken pieces.”

“I’ve been surrounded by so much love and incredible people I can’t tag them all, but they know who they are, and I don’t think they will ever know how thankful I am for them,” she added.

Amanda marked an anniversary with Jon on Instagram on Dec. 13 — writing, “I love you more than I have ever found the way to say.” And she celebrated his birthday on Dec. 16 with a sweet Instagram post, writing, “Happy birthday to my best friend, my other half, and my favorite person. Thank you for making me the luckiest.”
