Wrestler Jonathan Huber has died as a result of a non-COVID-19 related lung issue, his wife Amanda announced on Instagram Saturday. Huber was 41.

Huber worked for WWE under the ring name Luke Harper from 2012 until December 2019, when he was granted release from his contract. Huber then moved to All Elite Wrestling in March 2020, wrestling as Brodie Lee. Huber won the AEW TNT Championship in August, defeating Cody Rhodes to capture the title. Lee’s final match in AEW was on Oct. 11, where he dropped the TNT Championship back to Rhodes.

In reaction to the news of Huber’s stunning death, the wrestling world is mourning the loss of one of the most well-regarded people in the business.
