Dragon Lee: Wrestling Odyssey

Dragon Lee, whose real name is Muñoz Gonzalez, is a second-generation professional wrestler. Born on May 15th, 1995, he is the son of Arturo Muñoz.

His journey in the wrestling world began with Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre (CMLL), where he debuted on January 1st, 2014.

In a short span, he climbed the ranks, bagging titles such as the CMLL World Lightweight Championship and the CMLL World Welterweight Championship.

His prowess was further highlighted when he won the CMLL Bodybuilding Contest in both beginners and intermediate categories.

Achievements Beyond CMLL

Lee’s talents weren’t confined to CMLL. He showcased his skills in various other promotions, including Ring of Honor (ROH), where he secured the ROH World Television Championship and the ROH World Tag Team Championship twice.

His stints in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and All Elite Wrestling (AEW) were equally noteworthy. In NJPW, he clinched the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship and had the privilege of being Jyushin Thunder Liger’s final opponent at Wrestle Kingdom 14.

Moreover, he and his brother Dralistico won the AAA World Tag Team Championship in Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide.

Dragon Lee’s WWE Journey

2023 marked a significant year for Dragon Lee as he made his debut in WWE’s black and gold brand, NXT. On March 21st, 2023, he participated in a fatal five-way match for the NXT North America Championship at Stand & Deliver, although he didn’t emerge victorious.

While his exact salary remains undisclosed, reports suggest that he might be the highest-paid NXT superstar. If he transitions to the main roster, his earnings could potentially exceed $250,000 annually.

Beyond the ring, Dragon Lee leads a fulfilling personal life. He tied the knot with Lupita Orozco in December 2019. Wrestling runs in his blood, with two older brothers also in the industry.
