During an appearance on the Talk is Jericho podcast, Cody Rhodes continued to pay his respects to Brodie Lee, who tragically passed aaay at the age of just 41 last month after a battle with a non-COVID related lung issue.
Rhodes spoke about his memorable squash match with Brodie Lee from back in August, where Brodie Lee emphatically became only the second TNT Champion in the history of AEW.
Cody Rhodes also opened up about the original plans for Brodie Lee’s debut in AEW, which would have been in his hometown of Rochester had it not been for COVID:
The former TNT Champion noted that Brodie Lee was supposed to “come up out of the ramp like the monster in “The Munsters” before COVID changed the plans that AEW had for the former WWE star:
“That guy, his entire AEW career was in this building, in Daily’s Place. Think about that. He never appeared in front of a crowd except for our small crowds here. The one that really pisses us off is that Rochester show. I don’t know if anyone knows this, but he was going to come up out of the ramp like the monster in ‘The Munsters’.”
This comes after FTR revealed that Brodie Lee originally wanted to debut in AEW with the top tag team as an invading faction. You can read more about that idea by clicking here.
