Dragon Lee, who signed with WWE last year and made significant impact in NXT, was scheduled to participate in NXT New Year’s Evil. Unfortunately, visa issues have forced him to miss the event, leaving fans disappointed.

Lee was slated to team up with the Latino World Order for a thrilling six-man tag team match against No Quarter Catch Crew (Drew Gulak, Myles Borne, and Damon Kemp) at New Year’s Evil. However, Lee had to break the news to fans that he wouldn’t be able to make it to the show due to his visa predicament. Currently, he’s stuck in Mexico and unable to leave the country.

The good news is that Dragon Lee’s new work visa for WWE in the United States has been approved without any major issues, according to PWInsider. The delay in his return to the U.S. was attributed to the holiday season, causing the visa not to arrive in time for NXT New Year’s Evil. However, there’s optimism that he will be back in the States relatively soon, and there’s even speculation that he could return as early as Friday Night SmackDown.

For those who have asked, we are told that there are no imminent issues with Dragon Lee’s new work visa for WWE in the United States and that it has been approved, except that due to the holidays, it did not arrive in time for him to travel back to the United States in order to work NXT New Year’s Evil.


We are told that Lee is expected back in the States relatively soon and could even be back as soon as Friday’s Smackdown. It’s just a matter of the visa being physically in his hands.”

Fans can look forward to Dragon Lee’s return to WWE television, and he has teased something special in store for them once he’s back in action. It’s an exciting development for both Lee and the WWE universe, and his comeback is eagerly anticipated.
