It has emerged that Brodie Lee’s agent managed to work a hockey reference into his All Elite Wrestling (AEW) contract when he signed with the promotion.
Speaking on Talk Is Jericho, Chris Harrington, who is AEW’s Vice President of Business Strategy, revealed that Lee had his agent make sure the dollar amount ended in 93 as an homage to Doug Gilmour.
“I’ll give credit to his agent, Jordan. He goes, ‘We have a deal, let’s do the deal. I have one condition. I need the dollar amount to end in $93 because that was Doug’s number.’ Jon’s email had the number, his AIM name had the number. To me, it was very full circle. His agent was like, ‘That will pop him.'”
Lee’s love for hockey, specifically the Toronto Maple Leafs, is something that was very well-known.
He even chose for Anna Jay to be number 99 in the Dark Order as a reference to Wayne Gretzky.
