Brodie Lee hospitalized in late-October as health worsened

Following the death of Jon Huber (Brodie Lee) on Saturday, Dave Meltzer shared some details on Sunday's Wrestling Observer Radio on what led to him being hospitalized.

Following Lee's dog collar match with Cody Rhodes on the October 7th Dynamite where he lost the TNT title, the plan was for him to be off for several weeks selling the severity of the match. 

During his break, he was working out on his Peleton and got very tired, so much so that he couldn't finish his workout. Shortly thereafter, the condition affecting his lungs got considerably worse and he was hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, at the end of October. Meltzer didn't have any specifics on what the condition was as Huber's wife, Amanda, has only said it was a non-Covid related lung issue.

The company was aware of what was going on as Huber's wife had told them, but the family didn't want it out publicly.

The 41-year-old was a popular figure with his co-workers through his near-two decades in pro wrestling as social media was flooded all weekend with glowing tributes, stories, and pictures from his friends and family.
