Brodie Lee Jr’s Mother Says He Will Return To AEW Under One Condition

Brodie Lee Jr aka -1 is probably the youngest superstar in the pro wrestling industry. The 8-year-old became the de facto leader of the AEW roster after his father, Brodie Lee Sr. unfortunately passed away last year.

Currently, he is a member of the Dark Order stable. The promotion plans to offer him a full-time contract after he comes of age and if he is willing to stay in the industry.

As fans might have noticed, the kendo-stick-wielding youngster was not present during the last few months of AEW Dynamite. Turns out, Brodie is actually getting punished for letting his grades slip in favor of wrestling.

His mother and the widow of Brodie Lee Sr, Amanda Huber, revealed the same on Instagram. A user joked around Lee’s grades, and Amanda confirmed it.

“He stopped doing his work, so he lost privileges,” she revealed. “I don’t make money off any appearances he does at AEW, it’s purely for fun. It’s his favorite place in the world and a reward for hard work. He managed to finish his school year with all A’s and B’s despite slipping up a bit. I’m very proud of him.”

AEW commentator and interviewer Tony Schiavone also noted the little one’s love for sports entertainment as the latter used to roam freely backstage, mingling with everyone.

“They signed him to a contract,” the veteran noted. “They legitimately signed him to a contract and when he gets of age, he will be with AEW, They have taken care of him and he follows guys around all the time in the back and he becomes a part of us.”

As a result of his good grades, Brodie Lee Jr and his younger brother Nolan received the latest line of AEW action figures. You can check out the video below –
