FORMER WWE star Brian Myers has hit out over his former employer’s tribute to the late Jon Huber.
The wrestling world is still mourning following the loss of the 41-year-old on Saturday.
He passed away due to an unknown lung issue, which his family stated was not related to Covid-19.
Huber competed in WWE for a number of years as Luke Harper before switching to AEW this summer under the moniker of Brodie Lee.
Vince McMahon’s WWE aired their weekly episode of Monday Night Raw two days ago and honoured their ex-performer with a graphic ‘in memory’ of huber.
But Myers, better known as Curt Hawkins to WWE fans, was less-than-impressed with their efforts.
Especially as they produced the usual ten bell salute or even a video package showcasing the former Intercontinental and Tag Team champion’s best moment.
Myers tweeted: “No 10 bell salute? No video package? This man was beloved by his peers & we're all grieving hard. This isn't right.”
Myers was released by WWE as part of its huge staff cost-cutting in April following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
He has since joined fellow promotion Impact Wrestling.
Meanwhile, AEW President Tony Khan has confirmed this Wednesday's episode of Dynamite will serve as a tribute show for Brodie Lee.
The Fulham co-owner has confirmed that Wednesday's Dynamite will serve as a special tribute to former TNT champion Lee and his family.
A special match featuring three of the late star’s son Brodie Jr's favourite wrestlers teaming up will also take place.
Cody Rhodes, Orange Cassidy and Preston '10' Vance will put rivalry aside to take on Team Taz.
Lee – The Exalted One – debuted in AEW in March having made his name as Luke Harper during his seven-year stint in WWE.
Due to the change on Wednesday, Khan confirmed the New Year's Smash editions of Dynamite will now take place in 2021.
The 38-year-old announced it will air across the first two weeks of January 6 and January 13.
