Everyone has an interesting origin story.

Lee spoke to the Orlando Sentinel about entering pro wrestling. He started wrestling in the ninth grade, but in his senior year also added cheerleading to his resume.

“That helped me learn to throw and catch people in a different way” Lee said, who started out as a cheerleader in the 8th grade. “It helped me a lot in the long run.”

Known through his work with Pro Wrestling Guerilla, Lee joined Impact Wrestling in 2015 and faced some big competition his first night in the promotion.

“The Wolves were two guys I always looked up to” Lee said. “To do that on my first night in Impact? That was really cool.”

Beyond Impact, he also works at CWF Mid Atlantic, both as a trainer and a wrestler. He finds it rewarding to do both, and wants to make the promotion a big success.

“I want to help with it all,” Lee said. “This is the place that gave me my start at age 15, so I’ll do anything to help. I work backstage, tell stories and help with character development. I’m not going to be able to wrestle forever, so I want to learn every aspect of the business while I can.”

Lee continues to wrestle for Impact Wrestling, and will most likely be at their next set of tapings starting on January 5.
