There are plans for WWE to sign more standout wrestlers in 2023 according to a new report following the announcement that Dragon Lee will start in NXT soon.
Following his AAA Tag Team Title match victory (with his brother Dralistico) over the AEW tag team known as FTR, Dragon Lee announced that he was joining WWE. The company announced the signing on their website while also posting a video of the announcement.
“Dragon Lee is heading to WWE after a surprise announcement at tonight’s Lucha Libre AAA event. After an emotional victory with his brother, Dragon Lee relinquished his title and made the shocking reveal.
A second-generation Lucha Libre Superstar, Lee has won championships worldwide with his supreme skills as both a singles competitor and a tag team aficionado.
The high-flying and uber-athletic Dragon Lee has earned industry-wide respect with his seamless blend of acrobatics with mat technician skills. The Mexican-born Superstar has ruled every ring that he’s ever graced with his unique and jaw-dropping offense and is now officially taking his talents to NXT.”

The WWE Chief Content Officer, Paul “Triple H” Leveque, tweeted about Dragon Lee’s signing:
It was reported by WrestleVotes on Twitter that WWE has plans to sign more standout talent in 2023.
“I’m told WWE is hopeful the signing of Dragon Lee is just the start of “standout” talent agreeing to terms w/ the company. Hearing Triple H & crew have expectations to land other high quality names early in 2023.”

It’s been about five months since Triple H took over WWE’s creative team after Vince McMahon retired in late July. As the calendar turns to 2023 in a few days, apparently there are going to be more big signings coming soon from pro wrestling’s biggest company.
