Dragon Lee is a CMLL regular, and will join his brother Rush who recently signed with the promotion.
Ring Of Honor has a solid relationship with New Japan, who is a promotional partner with CMLL. This allows both Dragon Lee and Rush to continue to work dates for CMLL in Mexico.
Once Lee signs an exclusive deal with ROH, he will only be allowed to work for ROH in the U.S and Ontario, Canada, which is where Ring Of Honor holds exclusivity on talent.
Rush has yet to start with ROH, as they are still finalizing his visa, it’s unknown whether ROH has begun that process for Lee yet. According to the report, ROH is in the final stages of inking a deal with Dragon Lee, this may be due to the visa process.
Dave Meltzer noted recently that Andrade warned both Rush and Lee about signing with WWE, as its been known behind the scenes how unhappy he has been since joining the main roster.
Ring of Honor has been ramping up their signings over the last few months with stars such as PCO, Brody King, Bandido and Mark Haskins signing exclusive deals with the company.
