AEW star says he "enjoys" upsetting WWE

Over the last year, we have seen numerous Superstars jump ship from WWE and join AEW. The likes of Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, and Matt Hardy made high-profile moves from Vince McMahon’s company to the newly-formed AEW.

One other Superstar who joined AEW after asking for his release from WWE is Brodie Lee, who went by the ring name Luke Harper in WWE. His new character in AEW, as the leader of the Dark Order, is inspired by gangster movies. But, a lot of fans also found out that it has been heavily inspired by Vince McMahon and his unique mannerisms.

While appearing on the WrestlingInc Daily Podcast, Lee said that he enjoyed the “thought of me, little old me, affecting someone there (WWE):

“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 jabs his way in the early going. Once I realized 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 that bitter ex-employee. I don’t want that label on me whatsoever. I have no problems with that whatsoever. I rather enjoy that and the thought of me, little old me, affecting someone there, that’s OK with me.”

Brodie Lee was released by WWE late last year, and he debuted in AEW in March. WWE released quite a few Superstars a few months after Lee’s release, one of them being his former tag team partner, Erick Rowan.
