Dragon Lee’s Wrestling Debut

He made his first public appearance as Dragon Lee on November 20, 2013. He competed in CMLL’s 2013 Bodybuilding Contest, winning the beginner’s category.

Dragon Lee made his in-ring debut for CMLL on January 1, 2014, as part of the 2014 La Copa Junior tournament. During the match, he eliminated Herodes, Jr., but was eliminated by Cachorro as the third man eliminated in the tournament. A month after his CMLL debut, Dragon Lee participated in the 2014 Torneo Gran Alternativa (“Great Alternative”) tournament. The annual tag team tournament has a wrestling rookie team up with an experienced wrestler for the tournament. For the tournament, Dragon Lee teamed up with his older brother, Rush.  In the first round, the brothers defeated Negro Casas and Canelo Casas. They went on to defeat Herodes, Jr. and Shocker in the second round before losing to eventual tournament winners Bárbaro Cavernario and Mr. Niebla in the tournament’s semi-finals.

Lee Wins CMLL Gold

On August 25, 2014, it was announced that Dragon Lee would team up with fellow rookie Cachorro for the CMLL 81st Anniversary Show. This marked Dragon Lee’s first appearance at CMLL’s Anniversary Shows, the promotion’s most important show of the year. They were scheduled to compete in the first match against the brother-duo of Puma and Tiger. Dragon Lee won his first professional wrestling championship on April 5, 2015. He defeated Virus to capture the CMLL World Lightweight Championship.

In January 2016, Dragon Lee made his Japanese debut by taking part in the CMLL and New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) co-produced Fantastica Mania 2016 tour. On the fifth show of the tour, he successfully defended the CMLL World Lightweight Championship against Virus. After the match, Dragon Lee was attacked by Kamaitachi. This led to a match the following day, where Dragon Lee lost the CMLL World Lightweight Championship. Dragon Lee regained the championship from Kamaitachi on March 4th when they had a rematch in Mexico City.

Dragon Lee Debuts for Ring of Honor

Dragon Lee made his Ring of Honor (ROH) debut on September 30, 2016. Lee’s debut was at the ROH’s All Star Extravaganza VIII, in a victory over Kamaitachi. Lee then competed in a three-way match for the ROH World Television Championship against Marty Scurll and Will Ospreay but was unsuccessful.

At the 2019 Final Battle show, Dragon Lee defeated Shane Taylor to win the ROH World Television Championship.

Both of these reigns ended at ROH’s 19th anniversary show as Lee was sidelined with an ear injury.

Dragon Lee Returns to NJPW

The following May, Dragon Lee was announced as a participant in the Best of the Super Juniors 24 tournament.  In his opening match of the tournament on May 17, Dragon Lee defeated Hiromu Takahashi and then finished the tournament with a record of four wins and three losses, thus failing to advance to the finals. On G1 Special in San Francisco, Lee unsuccessfully challenged Hiromu Takahashi for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship. But at the G1 Supercard on April 6, 2019, Dragon Lee defeated Taiji Ishimori and Bandido in a triple threat match to win the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship for the first time.

Dragon Lee changed his ring name to Ryu Lee and challenged Jyushin Thunder Liger on December 8, 2019. On January 5th, Lee and Takahashi successfully defeated Liger and Naoki Sano in a tag match. It was then announced that at the New Beginning in Osaka, Lee would once again challenge Takahashi for the Jr. Heavyweight title.

Dragon Lee Wrestles on the Independent Circuit

While working for CMLL, Dragon Lee was able to take independent bookings for days when he was not needed for CMLL shows. This allowed Dragon Lee to work on both the Mexican and US independent circuit, mainly against other CMLL wrestlers. In early 2018, he challenged Shane Strickland for the PCW Light Heavyweight Championship as part of PCW’s Opposites Attack pay-per-view show, but lost. He then competed in the All Pro Wrestling/Pro Wrestling Revolution jointly promoted “King of Indies” tournament on July 6, 2018. He defeated Ryusuke Taguchi in the first round, Brody King in the semi-finals and Flip Gordon to win the whole tournament.

Dragon Lee Debuts for AEW

Lee made his All Elite Wrestling (AEW) debut on the August 17th edition of Dynamite. He participated in the first round of the AEW World Trios Championship tournament. Dragon Lee teamed with La Facción Ingobernable members Andrade El Idolo and his brother Rush to take on The Young Bucks and their mystery partner, who was revealed to be Kenny Omega. The match ended with Omega and the Bucks winning, after Omega pinned Lee. After the match El Idolo and Rush attacked Lee and removed his mask.

Dragon Lee Joins WWE

After defeating FTR with his brother, Dralistico, for the AAA World Tag Team Championships, Lee announced he had signed a contract with WWE in December 2022.

Lee did not win the match. During NXT Battleground in May, Lee challenged Noam Dar to the NXT Heritage Cup, but lost due to interference from Jakara Jackson and Lash Legend.

On the August 8th episode of NXT, Lee, with Rey Mysterio in his corner, failed to win the NXT North American Championship from Dominik Mysterio. During the week of September 25th, Lee appeared in all three of WWE’s brands (RAW, NXT and SmackDown). On the September 25 episode of RAW, Lee again failed to defeat Dominik for the title. The following day, on NXT, Lee lost a fatal four-way match for a chance to earn a NXT North American Championship opportunity against Dominik at NXT No Mercy. It was later announced that Lee would serve as the special guest referee for the title match at No Mercy. 

Dragon then made an appearance in the crowd on the September 29th episode of SmackDown. Lee got into an altercation with Austin Theory.
