Lee teased his departure on Dec. 31 when he re-tweeted DJZ's tweet in which he also announced he would be a free agent come midnight.
Appreciate it! See you soon.— Trevor Lee (@TLee910) January 1, 2019
Lee joined Impact Wrestling as a 21-year-old in 2015 and he mainly competed in the X-Division and as part of a tag team. He was a three-time X-Division champion and held the Tag Team Championship alongside Brian Myers.
Before joining Impact, Lee wrestled for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla where he was involved in matches with the likes of Cedric Alexander, Johnny Gagano and The Young Bucks. He also competed for various indie promotions including OMEGA Championship Wrestling based in his hometown of Cameron, North Carolina. Those ties to Cameron also give Lee ties to WWE as he was trained by Matt and Jeff Hardy.
