Pro wrestler Jon Huber died Saturday from a reported lung issue, according to The New York Times.
Huber, who wrestled under the names Luke Harper for the WWE and Brodie Lee for All-Elite Wrestling, was a fan favorite as a soft spoken yet imposing presence in the ring, according to the WWE.
Huber worked at the WWE for seven years before joining the All-Elite Wrestling company in 2020, according to the Times.
Huber’s wife in an Instagram post said that Huber passed away “after a hard fought battle with a non-COVID related lung issue."
