WWE signed Dragon Lee earlier this year. He finally showed up on TV on last week’s episode of NXT.

He faced Eddy Thorpe (Karl Fredericks) and picked up the win. Below are a couple of photos from last night:
Dragon Lee (age 27) believes he’s going to be the ‘new Rey Mysterio’ in WWE. Below is what he said when he signed with the company:
“I think I can become the new Rey Mysterio in WWE. I just need the opportunity. [Finn Balor] told me, ‘Would you like to be in WWE?’ (laughs). I said, ‘Yeah, sure. Why not?’ It was something special for me. It’s my challenge to learn more about promos.
You will never finish learning in pro wrestling. But every time you wrestle, you learn. But about promos, it’s something new for me. I would like to learn something new, how to become not just a wrestler – an artist.”
Below are his accomplishments in pro-wrestling so far:
– 2x ROH TV Champion
– 2x ROH World Tag Team Champion
– 1x IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion
– 2x CMLL World Lightweight Champion
– 1x CMLL World Welterweight Champion
– 1x AAA Tag Team Champion
