FORMER X-DIVISION CHAMPION DEPARTS IMPACT WRESTLING

By Mike Johnson on 2018-11-16 10:27:00

Former Impact Wrestling X-Division and Tag Team Champion Trevor Lee, 25 years old, has departed the promotion, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

We are told that Lee gave notice to the promotion that he was finishing up.  We have confirmed with several sources there is WWE interest in bringing Lee into the WWE NXT system.  WWE is slated to announce several signings in January, so the timing synchs up.

The son of Tracy Caddell, who was one of the founding members of OMEGA and wrestled under several personas, including T.C. Brimstone and T.C. Flexer, Lee has been a central figure in the North Carolina independent scene for years.  He broke out in 2014 during a run in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.  He debuted with Impact in 2015 as part of the Global Force Wrestling invasion, as he had been wrestling for Jeff Jarrett's promotion.  That opened the door for Lee to transition into a full-time Impact roster spot, where he was paired with Andrew Everett and Caleb Konley.

Lee worked his final scheduled bouts for Impact at the Las Vegas TV tapings earlier this week, with his final bout against Killer Kross.  Lee's Impact deal officially expires on 12/31.
