Big E, Daniel Bryan & Others Pay Tribute To Brodie Lee On SmackDown


During Friday night’s episode of SmackDown, several WWE Superstars paid tribute to the late Brodie Lee (Luke Harper in WWE).

First, the show opened with the same “In Memory Of Luke Harper” graphic that aired on RAW and NXT this week.

Also, Big E, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Daniel Bryan, and Cesaro all wore black armbands with “Brodie” written across them. Big E used the “Yeah, yeah, yeah” phrase during his tag-team match and also did a gator roll, which Lee often used during his matches.

During a backstage segment where he was on the phone with someone, Adam Pearce said “You know what that means.”

Also during a backstage segment, Big E. said, “I have fans coming up to me from Rome to Rochester. I had little Nolans and Amandas coming up to me.” Lee was from Rochester, New York and Amanda and Nolan are the names of his wife and youngest son. Lee’s favorite hockey team was the Toronto Maple Leafs and Big E. also mentioned them during his promo.

And finally, Cesaro did a Brodie sidewalk slam and Otis did a spinning lariat during the Daniel Bryan & Otis vs. Cesaro & Shinsuke Nakamura match.
