AEW star and leader of the Dark Order Brodie Lee recently appeared on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio. The former WWE Superstar would discuss a litany of topics from his short time with the All Elite promotion, as well as leaving him WWE earlier this year.
The now Exalted One will be challenging for the AEW Championship this weekend against Jon Moxley, another former WWE Superstar. This is the first main event singles bout for Brodie Lee in a long time, and he would describe how he wasn’t getting these opportunities in WWE, which ultimately led to him leaving the company.
“That’s the main reason why I didn’t want to be in WWE anymore, it’s because I knew those opportunities weren’t coming” Brodie Lee would begin. “No matter how hard I scratched and clawed, no matter what I proved? They weren’t coming. I wasn’t one of the chosen ones. So now here I am, I’m creating [those opportunities] myself.”
Brodie Lee would elaborate further, saying “I know I’m great at professional wrestling, I know I deserve these spots. So now I have to show up and prove that to other people. So now there’s a certain pressure on me, because there’s nobody to blame anymore [other than myself].”
The Exalted One would then discuss his opponent at Double or Nothing this weekend, Jon Moxley. “It’s a wonderful, very freeing feeling to be in that spot. And to do it with Jon Moxley? It’s even better because we’ve done it in EVOLVE, we’ve done it in FCW and we’ve done it in WWE. And now? We’re going to do it at AEW Double or Nothing. I think it’s 10 years? We’ve wrestled multiple times around the world. So, this is a very cool opportunity to have and like I said I’m gonna make him [Moxley] earn it back [the AEW Championship] because I have something to prove.”
