WWE has signed Trevor Lee!
If you remember, back in November it was reported that former IMPACT Wrestling X-Division Champion Trevor Lee was finished with the company and it was believed that WWE had interest in signing the 25-year old.
Since then it’s become more of an expectation that Lee would sign with WWE as opposed to a belief and last night, that expectation was turned into confirmation. Lee was in Gibsonville, North Carolina last night for CWF Mid-Atlantic and following his match, took the mic to announce to the crowd that he has in fact signed with WWE according to PWInsider.
While there are no other details regarding Lee’s signing, it’s been thought that WWE would announce a new class of Performance Center recruits sometime in January, which could also include some other known talents who recently jumped on board with the company. At this time, it’s strongly believed that Lee will be joining the NXT roster.
If you’re unfamiliar with Trevor Lee, he is a 6-foot, 215 pounder with (reportedly) four years of experience under his belt. He arrived in IMPACT Wrestling in 2015 after making waves with Pro Wrestling Guerrilla in 2014, winning the PWG World Tag Team Titles once with his future IMPACT running mate Andrew Everett. He would go on to become win the TNA World Tag Team Championship one time with Brian Myers (Curt Hawkins), as well as three reigns as the X-Division Champion.
