Sunday Evening Videos: 2020 Losses

Above you see the TCM “In Memorium” video, which they compile and release in December every year, revising it as the months proceeds and we lose more Hollywood legends. 2020 has been a brutal year, and it seems fitting to make our last Sunday Evening Videos of the year a bit of a somber one.

We can’t forget the 330,000-plus Americans that we have lost to COVID-19. I don’t mean to downplay those tragic deaths by turning my focus to more famous folks in this post.

We are also extremely sad to report that AEW wrestler, Brodie Lee–real name Jon Huber, and previously known as Luke Harper, a former champ in WWE over the course of seven years–passed away of “a non-COVID lung issue” at the age of 41. This is a pretty huge shock, as he had just been on TV up to a few monhs ago. Our condolences to his family and many, many friends in the wrestling industry.

Below we are bringing you ME TV’s 2020 “In Memorium” clip featuring some TV stars who didn’t show up in the TCM clip.

It’s been a pretty terrible year for notable deaths, from Movies and TV to Wrestling, Literature, Music and all creative arts. This year can’t end soon enough.
