    Given universally-beloved status of Huber within the industry, I shouldn't be shocked by it but it is odd to see AEW's official Twitter account RTing tribute posts and remembrances by WWE guys.

    Xavier Woods promoting the show going up AGAINST his company. More power to him.

    It'll NEVER happen these days, but I'd love to see what they did with the Pillman memorial shows for Brodie, where they had WCW, ECW and WWF guys on the card against each other.

    Amanda Huber and their kids standing front and center to open Dynamite. Brodie Jr. wearing a mask and clutching a kendo stick -- just gut me now.

    Miro was inconsolable standing behind Jericho.

    Lance Archer wearing the Luke Harper garb.

    That got me too.

    Colt Cabana was crying on the way to the ring. Hangman Page also looked emotional.

    I’m glad they have Jericho on commentary. Keeps things a little lighter on such a sad night.

    Erick Rowan sighting!

    And MJF rips off Junior’s mask, and the kid whacks him in the head with the kendo stick.

    And now they’re all crying.

    Hilarious that Excalibur had to keep correcting Jericho from calling him "Rowan" instead of "Redbeard."

    As great as it is seeing Rowan, it sucks that Bray is stuck in this stupid BS story with Orton. He should've been on Raw Monday to lead the tribute to Brodie/Harper, but they didn't want to break storyline of him being burned alive.

    Anyone else find it weird that the last two times WWE has murdered a character on screen, an active wrestler died in real life shortly thereafter?

    If that last segment of Dynamite didn't make you tear up, you have no soul.

    Farewell, Brodie Lee.
