Brodie Lee has been out of in-ring action since losing the TNT Championship last month, and many are speculating on his whereabouts.
While the exact reason for his absence has been officially revealed, Dave Meltzer provided some insight on the F4WOnline forum. Responding to a thread, asking where Brodie Lee has been, Meltzer responded, he believes he is suffering from an ankle injury.
Brodie Lee’s last match was a Dog Collar Match against Cody Rhodes on the 10/7 episode of AEW Dynamite. During an interview with AEW Unrestricted, Lee revealed the match took a physical toll on him, but did specially mention any injury.
“We were presented a couple of different chains and options, and we went with what you saw on TV mainly because it looked good on TV. That was not beneficial to my neck to have that strapped around me and have to carry it around for 20 minutes while another man is trying to kill me……[the chain] was bigger and makes better sound, which in turn, hurts more. So, I did this for the fans. I just want them to know that. I talked to a few people a few days after the match – I ride Pelaton a lot and I don’t know if it was Thursday or Friday, but I quit a ride for the first time. I was about 20 minutes in and I said I can’t do this – my body was just not proper. I’m two weeks out now and I’m slowly getting normal again, but I think I left a piece of me in there. But I’m happy with it.”
