Last week we shared a gem from the world of women's wrestling with Kana vs Melissa from a few years but over the last week sad and tragic news came to light as we all found out about the untimely death of Jon "Brodie Lee" Huber. One of New Yorks finest professional wrestlers. We figured with the news recently it's only right that we share our favorite Brodie Lee match. So here it is!
This weeks Match of the week goes to Brodie Lee vs Claudio Castagnoli (Cesaro) from Chikara back in 2008.
Check it out
Brodie and Claudio went to war at the legendary 2300 Arena in Chikara Pro's first and only (to my knowledge) steel cage match back in 2008. The feud was intense and this was appropriate for the biggest men in Chikara to settle it all. They brawled right from the start before either got inside the cage. Brodie Lee was tossing Claudio all over the cage off and on really playing the bully roll and delivering a powerbomb from hell later on in the match but that still doesn't do it to put Claudio away. Castagnoli dives off the cage with a with spinning uppercut and ends it with Brodie. Instant classic.
