AEW star Brodie Lee decided to move away from being too close to parodying his former boss.
AEW wrestler Brodie Lee, f.k.a. Luke Harper, and now the leader of Dark Order has got queries if his character parodied WWE’s Chairman Vince McMahon and the superstar denied it back in the day. During his recent interview with WrestlingInc. the former member of The Wyatt Family has revealed that it was a representation of his former boss. He said,
"“Obviously, there was a couple of little Easter eggs and things that people could very easily pick up on, but as a whole, the character was never meant to be a Vince McMahon parody. But there was definitely a couple of jabs his way in the early going. Once I realised that that was everything that people were going to talk about, I wanted to get away from that as quickly as possible because I wanted it to be more about me more about my identity and more about my journey to where we’re going. I didn’t want to be seen as that bitter ex-employee. I don’t want that label on me whatsoever.”"
