Former WWE star Erick Rowan pays tribute to Brodie Lee

Former WWE star Erick Rowan, real name Joseph Ruud, took to Instagram on Sunday to post a touching tribute to his former tag team partner, Jon Huber.

The pro wrestler best known as Luke Harper/Brodie Lee passed away at the age of just 41-years-old. 

Rowan and Huber were both members of the Wyatt Family and Bludgeon Brothers during their time in WWE where they found success by being SmackDown and NXT Tag Team Champions.

Erick stated the following:

“Heartbroken and numb. Just when I think my eyes have dried, I think of you and begin to cry again. I have lost not only a friend but a brother! I struggled last night with many emotions and memories. Jon meant more to me than he will ever know. I remember clearly all the loops we had during our years on the road together. He would always look forward to getting home to his family. After every loop he would say to me, “Goodbye Forever”, because he would want his 1 or two days with them, to feel like forever. One thing he taught me through his own actions was to be a better father and husband. He was one of a kind in everything he did, great performer, great father, great husband, great friend, and all around amazing human. My heart goes out to everyone who was touched by his greatness. My deepest condolences to his family. Jon this is not, “Goodbye forever, but goodbye for now! I will see you on the otherside my brother. I LOVE YOU!”
