Trevor Lee has officially signed with WWE.
Lee announced the news during a promo at the end of Saturday night’s CWF Mid-Atlantic show in Gibsonville, North Carolina. Lee mentioned that there were rumors this would be his last night in the promotion, and he said there was almost a little bit of truth to that. Lee said that he’s no longer a free agent as of this week because he’s signed a contract with WWE. The crowd chanted Lee’s name and “You deserve it.”
After that, Lee said this wasn’t going to be his final appearance for the promotion. He said he won’t leave until he loses the CWF Mid-Atlantic title. Lee announced that he’ll defend the championship in a six-pack scramble at CWF Stronger on February 2.
The main event of Saturday’s CWF Mid-Atlantic show was Lee, Shane “Hurricane” Helms & Cain Justice defeating Arik Royal, Roy Wilkins & Brad Attitude in a six-man tag match. The stipulation was that Lee’s title would change hands if Royal, Wilkins, or Attitude pinned anyone on Lee’s team.
Lee joining WWE/NXT has been expected since he finished up with Impact Wrestling in November. Lee announced on January 1, 2019that he was officially a free agent. He thanked Impact for the friends he’s made and the knowledge he’s learned.
Lee was a three-time X-Division Champion and a one-time Tag Team Champion for Impact. In addition to Impact and CWF Mid-Atlantic, he’s also been a regular for PWG and AAW.
