The former Ring of Honor World Television Champion made his WWE debut at NXT Roadblock earlier this week. His debut was just of him in the crowd waving before the six-man tag team match between “NXT” Champion Bron Breakker, The Creed Brothers, Jinder Mahal, and Indus Sher.
On March 11th, at a WWE NXT live event held at the St. Petersburg Armory in St. Petersburg, Florida, Dragon Lee had his first in-ring appearance. He faced off against Eddy Thorpe, who was formerly known as Karl Fredericks in NJPW. This was a non-televised event.
At the young age of 18, Dragon Lee began his professional wrestling career. He secured his first championship, the CMLL World Lightweight Championship, in 2015. Throughout his career, he has also achieved the titles of two-time ROH World Television Champion, two-time ROH World Tag Team Champion, and former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion. We’ll have to see how he will fare in NXT, now that Dragon Lee has finally arrived.
