Hola, Dragon Lee!

I'm very excited to be featuring a wrestler who's making his first appearance here on Beefcakes of Wrestling. Meet Dragon Lee, one of the superstars of Mexican lucha libre promotion CMLL (Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre). Now before you say "But Bruno, you already featured Dragon Lee way back in 2011," allow me to explain why this is Dragon Lee's first feature here.

Although this luchador's first name is not a matter of public record (in Mexico, many wrestlers' private lives are kept a secret from the fans), it is common knowledge that he's part of wrestling royalty. His father wrestles for CMLL as Comandante Pierroth and he has two brothers who are very popular there, Mistico and Rush (he has three uncles who are also wrestlers). Older brother Mistico was the first to use the Dragon Lee name (and he's the Dragon Lee featured in a 2011 post here), but  took over the popular Mistico character when the original Mistico left the country in 2012. In 2014, the youngest brother from this wrestling clan became a proa nd took on the mask and character his older brother left behind. That's why this is Dragon Lee (II)'s first appearance here.

Dragon Lee was born on May 15, 1995 (that makes him 22 years old) in Tala, a Mexican state of Jalisco. He's 5 ft. 7 in. tall and weighs 165 pounds. He made his professional debut on New Year's day 2014. You can read more about his career highlights, titles, and other accomplishments here. I'll be featuring more of Dragon Lee in a another post next week. Watch out for it!
