Following the tragic death of AEW star Brodie Lee, Jim Ross has revealed additional details on what he was told regarding the Brodie Lee’s illness.
Jim Ross shared details on his Grillin JR Podcast, revealing Brodie Lee had double lung failure, and he couldn’t qualify for a transplant.
“I still don’t know what… I haven’t seen of or heard of an autopsy. All I know is he had double lung failure. His lungs were so bad that he couldn’t qualify for a transplant, so after, as I heard the story, whether it’s totally accurate or not I don’t know, that they took him off his machine to see if he could kick out himself as that’s about the only chance he had. It just obviously didn’t work, so [it’s] a sad time for all of us. Again, he impacted so many of us on our roster that kind of went off the radar and so he’ll be very missed.”
The official cause of death has yet to be officially revealed, and the family has been clear about it being a non-COVID lung related issued.
