Former AEW World Tag Team Champions Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler, collectively known as FTR, announced that they will continually pay tribute to Jon Huber, also known as Brodie Lee. In a tweet. Harwood announced that, with Amanda Huber’s permission, the team is renaming their signature move, the Goodnight Express, as “Big Rig.” Of course, “Big Rig” was Lee’s nickname.
After speaking with Amanda, and getting her blessing, we have decided to change the name of The Goodnight Express to “Big Rig”. This is our way of keeping a bit of his legacy alive in professional wrestling. We love you, Brodie. Can’t wait to see you again. pic.twitter.com/uEO8EOjYut

All Elite Wrestling has honored Lee in various ways. The company named his son, Brodie Lee Jr., as the AEW TNT Champion for life, and it will redesign the title so that the initial design will forever be associated with Lee. The most recent episode of AEW Dynamite was a special show dedicated to Lee’s life and his legacy, both as a wrestler and as a person.
