Dragon Lee's career with WWE has officially begun.
Lee has yet to wrestle for WWE since joining the promotion but he made his first appearance on WWE TV during the special Roadblock edition of NXT on Tuesday night. Lee was shown watching the show from the crowd, being introduced to the NXT audience with a prompt wave.
Lee later tweeted:
I just arrived @WWENXT https://t.co/AmeXMJTWGP— Dragon Lee ドラゴンリー (@dragonlee95) March 8, 2023
NXT have often revealed new signings by first showing them sitting in the crowd, with the likes of Matt Riddle, Drew McIntyre, and Keith Lee being notable examples.
Lee announced he had signed with WWE on December 28, immediately after he and Dralistico had defeated FTR for the AAA World Tag Team Championships. The belts were vacated as a result of Lee's announcement. The announcement reportedly caused issues to arise between AAA and All Elite Wrestling.
Lee was expected to start with NXT in January but visa issues delayed him beginning with the company.
