Brodie Lee On Joining AEW, Says He Wasn't Originally Supposed To Win The TNT Championship

During his appearance on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Brodie Lee spoke about winning the TNT Championship.

"I believe that the original plan was for me to not become TNT Champion. I’m kind of not privy to the ins and outs, the nuts and bolts of it all, probably because I don’t want to be. Because if I get a thought in my head, I become quickly married to it, and then if something changes, I go insane. So, I try not to know too much about what’s supposed to happen and kind of just live in the moment. I learned my lessons the hard way over many, many years.

I mean, now I’m slotted at the top and I have a crew behind me that’s going to help me do the work. There was no doubt about it in my mind."

On If People Knew About His AEW Debut

"Actually, yes. People knew kind of in a roundabout way, at least in the town of Rochester, that it was probably going to happen that way. But I think nationally, I don’t think Rochester was recognized as a place that is labeled on me as a hometown,” Lee said. “In WWE, I was never announced from Rochester. I wasn’t allowed to be, so I don’t think people associated it with me. But I think there was a scuttlebutt in Rochester and people were ready for it, and of course, [it was] serendipitous to a point.
