Trevor did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated and stated that he does have interest in heading to either WWE or New Japan Pro Wrestling.

“I would love to go to WWE or New Japan,” said Lee. “I’ve done a lot in the United States in terms of big independent companies. I’ve wrestled in Mexico, Canada, England, and India, but I’d love to go to Japan.”

Trevor Lee was in headlines earlier this year for reasons not having to do with the squared circle. His father Tracy Caddell unfortunately passed away on a day that three other in-ring performers passed away on. Trevor and his father were very close and they both were/are great friends with Matt and Jeff Hardy stemming from Caddell and Matt Hardy starting the 'OMEGA' wrestling promotion together.

“My father started OMEGA with Matt Hardy in 1997,” said Lee. “My fondest memories are having a wrestling ring in our yard. Matt and Jeff Hardy, Shannon Moore, and guys from all over the Cameron area were training in that ring. At school, kids would say, ‘Why do you have a wrestling ring in your yard? That’s not normal.’ They would have a basketball goal in their yard, but to me, wrestling was just a normal way of life." He continued, "Me and my father always stuck together,” said Lee. “He was married three times, and we lost a couple things through those divorces. When I was in the sixth grade, we had to move out of our house after a bad divorce. We ended up living with my grandmother, and me and my father actually shared the same room until I graduated high school.”
