“I think I can become the new Rey Mysterio in WWE. I just need the opportunity,” Lee said. “[Finn Balor] told me, ‘Would you like to be in WWE?’ [laughs]. I said, ‘Yeah, sure. Why not?’ … It was something special for me. It’s my challenge to learn more about promos. You will never finish learning in pro wrestling. But every time you wrestle, you learn. But about promos, it’s something new for me. I would like to learn something new, how to become not just a wrestler — an artist.”

WWE News: James Kimball commented on WWE’s signing of Dragon Lee

Lee first got interested in the move when Judgment Day member Finn Balor asked him if he’d want to try his luck in WWE. From there, he worked with Trent Wilfinger and James Kimball to join the promotion.

WWE’s Head of Talent Strategy and Operations James Kimball expressed his thoughts on the signing.

“This signing is reflective of WWE’s renewed emphasis on globalizing our talent pipeline with Latin America positioned as a focal market,” Kimbal told ESPN.
