Excited, he confirmed that from now on he will fight in the world’s largest company and that he must learn to make promos to proudly carry the name of Mexico in his new stage as a professional.

In the meantime, Fighting has investigated a little more on the subject to learn more details about the latest WWE signing, remembering that Canyon Cémanformer Senior Director of Talent Development at the company, he had already expressed interest in the fighter before the decision was made not to hire him.
However, the current regime of WWE would have noticed the fighter after he appeared on AEW programming this year, reaching an agreement with him as soon as they learned that he did not have a contract with Tony Khan’s company. In addition, the medium points out that Dragon Lee would have pressured his brother Dralístico (who has also acted as Dragon Lee and Místico in the past) to also join the McMahon company, but WWE would not be interested in him at the moment. .
Secondly, Fighting He points out that, since Wednesday afternoon, various sources told them that a “big NXT signing” was approaching, although they did not receive more details about it. Later, the outlet was able to confirm that Dragon Lee had signed an agreement to be part of WWE’s developmental brand and not the main brands (Raw and SmackDown).
The outlet also reports that WWE had cameras filming the AAA show Noche De Campeones 2022, the content of which will be presented at the Performance Center in the coming weeks. In this sense, the Mexican company was aware that the fighter would sign with WWE, so it decided to inform all those who should know about it. Furthermore, as he points out Fighting, AEW would not have been surprised by the news.
Finally, it should be noted that ESPN indicated that Finn Bálor would have helped facilitate the agreement between Dragon Lee and WWE. Besides, Fighting He anticipates that this type of agreement with prominent free agents could continue to happen in the coming years.
