Highlights

  • Tony Khan already knows who his AEW Hall of Fame inductees would be: Sting and Mr. Brodie Lee, two deserving champions and individuals.
  • Brodie Lee, known for his kindness, positivity, and respect, deserves a spot in the AEW Hall of Fame despite his untimely passing at 41.
  • AEW President Khan also believes Jay Briscoe, a great wrestler who never got to compete in AEW, should be honored in their future Hall of Fame.



While there’s no immediate plan to create an AEW Hall of Fame, Tony Khan already knows who his first two inductees would be if he were to ever create one. During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, the AEW President discussed the potential initial inductees for the AEW Hall of Fame and he made two very solid choices.

Khan said:

“If we ever do an AEW Hall of Fame, certainly the first two people that come to mind that we would have to honor would be Sting and Mr. Brodie Lee.”

He called them two of the greatest champions and two of the greatest people AEW has ever employed. While their circumstances are very different, both are deserving. Khan said, “Sting and Mr. Brodie Lee would be great people to build any Hall of Fame class around.” As many AEW fans know, Brodie Lee (Luke Harper from WWE fame) died unexpectedly after he was hospitalized in October 2020 for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. He was only 41 years old. He never got to reach the heights of what he could do in AEW, but his legacy was one of kindness, positivity, and respect. Putting him in an AEW Hall of Fame would be the right thing to do.


Conversely, Sting had an extremely long career, just recently retiring from in-ring competition. His wrestling run spanned nearly 40 years and it saw him win multiple championships. He split time in WCW, TNA, WWE, and AEW. He was most popular in WCW, but his AEW run was memorable because he wowed audiences long after the first time he retired due to injury. In late 2020, Sting joined AEW and made his debut at Dynamite: Winter Is Coming. He participated in his first match alongside partner Darby Allin at Revolution on March 7, 2021, securing a tag team victory. He retired at Revolution three years later.



Who Else Might Be Included In AEW’s Hall Of Fame?

Khan added, “Somebody that never got to wrestle in AEW that I also feel very strongly about, who needs to be talked about and honored, is Jay Briscoe.” Briscoe also passed suddenly and Khan said, “I always wanted to bring Jay into AEW. He was my friend and was friends with a lot of people in the locker room. He was one of the greatest wrestlers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and producing for.”

AEW will, one day, have a Hall of Fame. They may not have one now because they are still relatively new, but as time passes, it would be shocking for them not to find a way to honor those who made an impact on their company.
