Huber found success in every stop of his sports-entertainment career, as his soft spoken yet imposing presence helped him create countless awe-inspiring moments in the ring.
The wrestler’s devastated wife, Amanda, shared an update on Instagram where she revealed he had died of a non-covid related lung issue.
“My best friend died today. I never wanted to write out those words. My heart is broken” She posted. Just 41-years-old, friends and colleagues said they were devastated to break the news of Harpers passing on Boxing Day.
“WWE is saddened to learn that Jon Huber, known to WWE fans as Luke Harper, passed away today at age 41. WWE extends its condolences to Huber’s family, friends and fans” The giant wrestling company posted on Saturday.
As a member of The Wyatt Family, he engaged in heated rivalries with the likes of Kane, Daniel Bryan, The Shield, John Cena and The USOs. After being set free from the family, Harper authored an impressive singles run that culminated with him defeating Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship.
Harper & Rowan later comprised The Bludgeon Brothers and embarked on a path of destruction that was highlighted by a SmackDown Tag Team Title victory in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 34.
