The passing of Brodie Lee hit the wrestling world very hard. Everyone has had good things to say about Brodie and that includes WWE star Seth Rollins.
During his recent appearance on WWE’s The Bump, Rollins was asked about the passing of Brodie Lee. In short, he said Brodie was a hero to him and he has named a CrossFit workout in his honor. Here is the quote, courtesy of Inside the Ropes:
“Oh, wow, I wasn’t expecting to talk about Brodie at all. That one hit me really hard,” Seth Rollins said with ruefulness in his voice. “I was kind of away being a dad when his passing came through; sudden would be an understatement – untimely, to say the least. His family, I love them, and I loved him. I enjoyed every single second I got to spend with Brodie.
Yeah, we made a workout in his honor. CrossFit has a history of, you know, creating workouts in honor of heroes, and Brodie was a hero to me, especially as a new dad. We created the workout with some of the things he really liked, which were heavy deadlifts. He liked sitting on a bike, and I think we added some pushups in there as well because he was a big body guy. Despite him, I put in one burpee in there because I knew that would get under his skin ’cause he hated burpees a lot!”
Brodie Lee and Seth Rollins competed against each other often during The Shield’s rivalry with The Wyatt Family in 2014.
