JR On The Biggest Takeaway From His Relationship With Brodie

AEW Senior Advisor and Commentator “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross recently took to his Grilling Jr podcast to talk about Brodie Lee and the impact he had on the wrestling business. JR also talked about Brodie Lee Jr. and how he has become a beloved figure back in the locker room.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“I didn’t have any clue, and it didn’t bother me to admit this, that Brodie Lee was as popular with his peers as he was.” “It’s absolutely phenomenal. It’s overwhelming, the outpouring of love for this guy who kind of stayed off the radar all those years. Then to find out he was universally loved by talents at every level.”

“His little boy, Brodie, has become quite the beloved figure back in the locker room. Everybody loves the little fart, his dad’s eyes and his eyes are the same. He’s a cute little kid and I was with him Sunday at the [Jacksonville Jaguars] game.

I made him a deal that when he wrestles for his first title, I will announce the match. I wanted to make him happy and he thought that was the coolest deal, so fairly his dad had said nice things about me and the little boy remembered it.”

Jim Ross then talked about his biggest takeaway with Brodie Lee and what he remembers most about him. JR also talked about how Brodie Lee wasn’t bitter about the past and that he was more looking forward to the future.

This is what Jim Ross said:

Here’s my biggest takeaway: he was so thankful to finally get this opportunity in AEW.” “To mold his own character and his own mindset. That’s the great thing about our company, Tony Khan listens to everyone’s ideas.

If you’re a talent and you have an idea about how to get yourself over, then you go for it. [Brodie] was just so relieved that finally he was getting a chance to explore his own creative, steer his own ship.”

“He wasn’t bitter about the past, he was more looking forward to the future. I don’t think we ever had a conversation where he didn’t talk about his family in glowing terms. The most prominent family man I may have ever met in wrestling. He loved Bruiser Brody, that was his role model.”

Jim Ross then talked about how good of a person Brodie Lee was and how he loved being around him. Jim Ross also talked about the good vibes Brodie had with him and that Brodie was always smiling and that he was a funny guy and had a great sense of humor.

Jim Ross also talked about how Brodie Lee impacted so many members of their roster.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“You can’t be this popular if you got a reputation for not being a good person.” “He was certainly a good person. I loved being around him, his positivity was great. He was 40 years old and he was starting over and excited about that.

That match he had with Cody that dog collar match was one of the best we’ve ever had on the show. All good vibes with him, always smiling, funny guy, great sense of humor.”

“I’m going to work today and I’ll tell these young guys it doesn’t hurt to laugh. Laughter is a good medicine and he made you laugh didn’t he? Remember those times?

Better than him not being able to kick out of his issues. Sad time for all of us, he impacted so many on our roster that kind of went off the radar. He’ll be very missed. I hope the folks that saw [AEW Dynamite] on Wednesday saw what we tried to do in his honor.”
