Big E. recently took to social media to announce that the special Brodie Lee-inspired ring gear worn as a tribute to the late Jon Huber at the WWE Royal Rumble 2021 pay-per-view was auctioned off for over $11,000 for charity.
“Thank you to everyone who bid on the New Day Royal Rumble gear,” wrote the WWE Intercontinental Champion as a caption to a video he released via his official Twitter page to announce the details of the auction of the aforementioned ring gear. “We were able to send $11,354.37 to Foodlink NY. We love you, Brodie.”
The complete transcription of the video released by Big E. reads as follows:
“I just wanted to take some time to say thank you everyone who took part in our auction and gave to Foodlink New York, it’s officially over. We auctioned off our Royal Rumble gear which was made in tribute to our friend, our brother, our beloved Brodie, aka John Huber, aka Luke Harper, a man of many names. But for me, it was a way to honour someone that we love very, very much and will always miss. And I hope that for us, it’s just finding ways, to find some silver lining out of a great loss, of the pain, of just a really awful moment in our lives, is to find some good out of all that. And you all helped make that possible. So i just wanted to say thank you to everyone that helped spread the word, who gave directly, you brought gear, it’s all for a great cause, and let’s keep doing good. So thank you.”
