Brodie Lee Talks Debuting To No Crowd, Who He Wants To Face In AEW



AEW’s Brodie Lee, formerly Luke Harper in WWE, was a guest on Busted Open Radio where he talked about his move to AEW and what he hopes to achieve.

Lee debuted on March 18 in his hometown of Rochester as the long-awaited leader of the Dark Order – unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he debuted without a crowd.

Lee said that the “no crowd” was a bit of a letdown but he had been so eager to finally debut, he rejected the idea of waiting when it was presented to him by Tony Khan.

“Being in a hotel room for the past eight months now, I’m like a caged animal here. I need to get out,” said Lee. “So there was no hesitation at all for me to jump on the opportunity to do it in front of a closed set and to jump in front of it.”

Now that he’s in a new company, Lee is eager for new opportunities that he knew he wouldn’t get staying in the WWE.

“No matter how hard I scratched and clawed, no matter what I proved, they weren’t coming. I wasn’t one of the chosen ones,” said Lee about the WWE.

“Now here I am, I’m proving it myself. But now, it’s like I know I’m great at professional wrestling. I know I deserve these spots, but now I have to show up and prove that to other people. So now there’s a certain pressure on me because there is no one to blame anymore,” he added.

Lee also said he was eager to face many of the AEW talents who he hasn’t had the chance to face before.

“A guy like Kenny Omega, Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Cody Rhodes now. The list is so hard, even (Proud) And Powerful, Jericho, all those guys. Sammy Guevara,” he said. “Literally almost everyone on the list is a fun match up to me.”

Lee is currently part of the main event scene in AEW, about to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
