How much did it mean for Big E. to have fans chant for Brodie Lee during a recent promo of his on WWE television?
Why not ask the WWE Champion himself?
That’s what Renee Paquette did when the top dog on the WWE Raw brand appeared as a guest on her “Oral Sessions” podcast for an in-depth interview.
Featured below is what Big E. had to say about the matter.
“People chanting his name – I had the moment where I looked at Woods and just kind of, I’m getting chills thinking about it and I had chills then – it was one of those lines that I didn’t need anyone to react to because sometimes you throw out a line that’s just kind of for you and for people at home. I didn’t know if people would get it, but man, it was so heartwarming and almost overwhelming to hear those chants and to know that people knew who I was talking about and that his memory is still alive. I also love, and it’s a small thing, but I never called him Luke. Maybe in promos, but it was always Brodie. You’re not talking about this pro wrestler who died when you’re chanting Brodie – that’s my friend, that’s my buddy, that’s my brother. I appreciated that so much. It meant a lot.”
