#It’s #Thursday, you know what that means.

#If you travel through #Brodie #Lee’s timeline, if you followed him while he was #Luke #Harper, he tweeted this every day. #Many didn’t know what it meant, but they knew what it meant.

#As #Lee, or as #Harper, #Jon #Huber was impactful wherever wrestling brought him, rising to heights in the ring few others achieved while he was here. #He was an #Intercontinental and #World #Tag #Team champion in the WWE. #He was #All #Elite #Wrestling’s second-ever #Television #Champion. #He was even as high as the 24th ranked singles wrestler in the 2015 #Pro #Wrestling #Illustrated 500.

#But evidently, his true significance was measured outside the ring, which many of us have absorbed since his untimely passing the day after #Christmas to a lung-related issue.

#Since the news of #Huber’s passing, there’s been a waterfall of remembrance honoring him throughout the wrestling community from all promotions, including never before told stories, joyous memories, and profound tributes.

WWE #Champion #Drew #McIntyre, who opened up #Raw this past #Monday, began his promo saying, “It’s #Monday, you know what that means,” followed by a “yeah, yeah, yeah,” which #Huber often said while performing as #Harper. (1:16)

WWE star and creator of #UpUpDownDown #Xavier #Woods called #Huber one of his best friends in wrestling, and in life, sharing a tribute video from his hilarious appearances with UUDD.

There was this delightful video shared by #Sean #Ross #Sapp of #Fightful.com that you need to watch.

#And then there was his tribute show, which aired live on TNT at 8 p.m. EST last night.

#Lance #Hoyt wore an attire replicating #Huber’s old WWE gear.

#Cody #Rhodes, battling through tears, introduced his son #Brodie #Jr. to place his father’s boots in the center of the ring, with chants of ‘Brodie’ echoed in the small audience. #And his son was even presented as TNT #Champion for life.

#Nolan smashed #Maxwell #Jacob #Friedman with a kendo sick, delighting #Chris #Jericho and everyone else in attendance.

#Brodie’s old WWE tag team partner #Erick #Rowan made the most emotional debut in AEW’s young history.

#And, of course, there was AEW’s touching montage, which aired on the broadcast and was shared on social media.

#Additionally, there were a host of tweets from countless AEW and non-AEW representatives, bridging the wrestling industry together to commemorate #Brodie’s life and legacy. #All of which were reposted by the official AEW account.

#He wore socks with his son’s face on them. #He was, “The biggest, scariest man you’ll ever see on television,” but simultaneously, “The kindest soul you’d ever meet,” by the account of #Charlotte #Flair, echoed by others. A wrestler who was as talented, as loveable, and as intense as they came. #And a man who was beloved, influential, and as #Moxley put it, “#So fucking good.”
