AEW and WWE talent comment on tonight’s Brodie Lee tribute show, new version of his theme song released
Several WWE and AEW stars are tweeting to promote tonight’s special AEW Dynamite episode on TNT, which will be the Celebration of Life tribute for Brodie Lee, who passed away last Saturday at the age of 41 due to a non-COVID-19 lung issue.
Dolph Ziggler indicated that he does not watch the weekly WWE NXT or Dynamite shows, but will be tuning in to AEW tonight.
“Well for the first time since I can remember, I’m watching wrestling tonight. If possible, I think we all should. Cheers [clinking beer mugs emoji] [delivery truck emoji],” Ziggler tweeted.
Xavier Woods also tweeted to promote tonight’s Dynamite special, writing, “Tonight there will be a celebration of the incredible life of Brodie Lee.”
Several wrestlers, including SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, have also re-tweeted Lee’s last tweet to use his signature Twitter catchphrase, from October 7. That tweet, seen below, says, “It’s Wednesday. You know what that means.”
You can see related tweets below from Woods, Ziggler, Renee Paquette, Matt Cardona, Cash Wheeler, Matt Hardy, Miro, Lance Archer, Dasha Kuret, Ababdon, Sammy Guevara, Taz, Alex Reynolds, John Silver, Brandi Rhodes, Marq Quen, Anna Jay, and Hangman Page.
On a related note, AEW music composer Mikey Rukus has released a special version of Lee’s theme song. “Symphony & AEW: A Mr. Brodie Lee Tribute” is available for downloading and streaming via Soundcloud and Bandcamp now. It will be released on all major platforms next week. The links can be seen in the tweet below from AEW and Rukus.
AEW wrote, “You’ve heard his theme. Now, @MikeyRukus has taken it and created a heartfelt musical number, SYMPHONY & AEW: A MR. BRODIE LEE TRIBUTE for direct download/streaming- Will hit all major platforms next week.”
Rukus also commented on the tribute, writing, “I tell people all the time… just breathe. This is my process.. this is how I breathe. I was very fortunate to get some voice takes from him last time I was in JAX and I incorporated them here. My true hope is to honor him and help others heal, at least a little.

Tonight is going to be special. It’s going to be emotional. It’s going to be hard. But it might end up being the most beautiful display of wrestling as a family that I’ve ever been a part of. For Brodie.

I tell people all the time… just breathe.
This is my process.. this is how I breathe.
I was very fortunate to get some voice takes from him last time I was in JAX and I incorporated them here.
My true hope is to honor him and help others heal, at least a little.
