Lee has been billed at 6'2" and nearly 300 pounds, has been the most prominent in promotions like Evolve, WWN, and PWG and he currently holds the WWN Championship. While on the independent circuit, Lee has faced off with some of the best wrestlers including wrestlers who are now with NXT. 

The Austrian wrestler Walter primarily competes at Germany's Westside Xtreme Wrestling  where he has also been working as a trainer. Wrestling Observer said Walter has told them he has little interest in leaving WXW or Germany for long periods of time. 


Walter took to twitter to say he has not been offered a contract.
