Dragon Lee is coming for Dominik Mysterio.
In recent weeks, Lee has continued to clash with Mysterio, with the North American Champion helping Mustafa Ali to victory over the star on the September 5th episode of NXT despite being the special guest referee.
Fast forward to September 18th on Raw, and Lee was in the crowd while Mysterio was strutting his stuff. In this case, that meant being defeated by Cody Rhodes.
Later in the show, it will confirmed Mysterio will defend the North American Title against Lee on Raw on September 25th. Although the match will be Lee’s first on the main roster, it’ll be his second attempt at trying to prise the gold from Mysterio’s grasp.
