- The company prepared video material with its superstars before Monday Night RAW
- Huber received several tributes last night at the red show
Last night the first episode of Monday Night RAW was held after the unfortunate death of Jon Huber. The worker, known to WWE ranks as Luke Harper, received various tributes from the company and its superstars.
Something that surprised many fans and fighters is the fact that except for the initial plaque, no one mentioned Jon Huber directly in the three hours of broadcast. There were even several complaints about not including a direct tribute to the former intercontinental champion, such as the classic ten strokes or a video recalling his career.
WWE was at least filming content for a Brodie Lee tribute. I don't know what platform or method it will run, but they've been working on it.

However, the latest reports from the specialized press state that these tributes would have been considered until the last minute. As mentioned by PWInsider, WWE gathered their superstars prior to the RAW episode to record content related to Huber. The backstage news was also introduced by Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, who clarified that it is not known by what type of medium they could present the footage.
Xavier Woods Was The Only One To Address Jon Huber Directly
After finishing Monday Night RAW, Charly Caruso and R-Truth presented a new episode of RAW Talk. It was on this show that Xavier Woods made direct mention of Jon Huber in front of WWE cameras for the first time since his passing. “That man is our friend,” Woods said. “If you didn’t get a chance to meet him, he was a fantastic human being who did too much for this industry. He touched many lives, and was capable of making anyone feel good regardless of whether he was a wrestler, a producer or a fan. He was a person. very important, both for me and for this company. We will miss you very much. “
