In a stunning revelation from the recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, acclaimed luchador Dragon Lee is making a high-octane transition to WWE’s main roster, a maneuver that industry insiders have been ardently tracking across the three brand spectrums over recent weeks.
With initial plans perpetually indicative of a fast-track to the spotlight, Dragon Lee's ascension comes as no surprise to those following his exhilarating journey. However, his work alongside Dominik Mysterio within the vibrant realms of NXT not only showcased his remarkable prowess but evidently also captivated the backstage officials, potentially accelerating his propulsion to the main stage.
The report elucidated, “Lee, with his riveting match alongside Dominik, has not only justified his place on the main roster but seemingly fast-tracked his journey therein. Although his contract initially pointed towards a main roster debut after a robust year in NXT, his impeccable synergy and match execution with Dominik might have expedited this timeline”.
Last year presented a crucial junction for Lee, with both AEW and WWE extending lucrative offers. Despite the allure from both ends, WWE managed to clinch his commitment by dangling the carrot of main roster money in the sophomore year of his deal.
Conversations with insiders and a view that AEW was somewhat saturated with talent seemingly tilted the scales in WWE’s favor.
Dragon Lee's Ascension
Analysts have been keenly observing the trajectories of both Dragon Lee and his compatriot, Bandido, who both plunged into the wrestling ocean at approximately the same time frame.
Although injury has impeded Bandido's journey, Lee, as per current dynamics, has not only kept pace but nudged ahead. In the latest episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Lee claimed victory over Austin Theory, igniting speculation and anticipation regarding his consistent appearance either on Raw or SmackDown.
The exact trajectory of Dragon Lee’s journey through the main roster remains shrouded in mystery and is bound to unveil in the forthcoming weeks. As we witness this compelling narrative unfold, Dragon Lee’s career promises a myriad of enthralling chapters, each likely to be more exhilarating than the last, solidifying his imprint on the WWE universe.
