Trevor Lee Announces Departure From IMPACT Wrestling


On Tuesday, former 3x IMPACT X-Division Champion Trevor Lee officially announced his departure from IMPACT Wrestling, after it had been rumored for months that he was leaving to join NXT in 2019.

Trevor Lee has been wrestling since 2007, when he was trained by the Hardy Boyz in OMEGA Wrestling, the indie promotion started by Matt Hardy and Lee’s father, indie wrestler Tracy Caddell (who passed away earlier this year). Since 2009, he’s been the face of Carolina Wrestling Federation (CWF) Mid-Atlantic in North Carolina, where he’s a 2x CWF Mid-Atlantic Television Champion and the current reigning CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion, a title he’s held since February of 2016.

In 2014, he entered his first Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) Battle of Los Angeles tournament and has been a presence in every BOLA since, reaching the finals in 2016 in an epic match against Will Ospreay and eventual winner, “The Villain” Marty Scurll. In 2015, Lee exploded on the national indie scene, working with EVOLVE, Beyond Wrestling, All American Wrestling (AAW), Smash Wrestling, and the UK with Revolution Pro (RevPro), before signing with IMPACT Wrestling. He originally made his debut in a tag team with Brian Myers (WWE Superstar Curt Hawkins), winning IMPACT Tag Team gold, before joining fellow OMEGA alumni Shane Helms and Andrew Everett in The Helms Dynasty.

As a singles star, Lee became one of the stars of the X-Division, capturing the X-Division title on three occasions, forming his own faction, The Cult of Lee, with protegeĀ Caleb Konley. Lee recently failed to enter the Ultimate X match at IMPACT Homecoming and his final match was at the Las Vegas TV tapings in a match against Killer Kross that has yet to air.

Interestingly, late on Tuesday night, AAW announced their January 26 show, titled The Last Stand, which features Trevor Lee on the poster, that could be foreshadowing of Lee moving on to a new home in 2019. Whether that ends up becoming with NXT or the recently announced All Elite Wrestling (AEW) is yet to be revealed.
