Huber’s wife, Amanda, wrote on Instagram that her husband died of non-Covid-related lung issues:
Huber made his pro wrestling debut in 2003 and has been a fixture in the scene this past decade. Before he joined AEW, he wrestled in WWE as Luke Harper, where he was a member of the Wyatt Family and had one stint as the intercontinental champion and also was one-half of the SmackDown tag-team champions with Erick Rowan. He also held the TNT championship belt during his time in AEW.
This is a profoundly tragic loss and our thoughts are with Huber’s friends and family as they cope with this loss.
