Cruiserweight Classic: Who is Jason Lee?

With WWE's Cruiserweight Classic coming soon, RealSport takes a look at one of the men involved, Jason Lee.


As we draw closer to WWE’s much anticipated “Cruiserweight Classic” we here at Real Sport are taking a look at some of the competitors that WWE have handpicked from around the world.

Today the man in the spotlight is Jason Lee.

Where He Wrestles

The majority of Lee’s time has come competing for the Hong Kong Pro-Wrestling Federation, the same organization that was founded by fellow Cruiserweight Classic competitor HoHo Lun. Lee has also spent time on the independent circuit all around the world, including Pro Wrestling Zero1 in Japan, 4FW in the UK, and TWT in Taiwan.

Style

What makes Lee most dangerous is his striking ability. The name is reminiscent of one of his childhood idols, Bruce Lee, and Jason began martial arts training at a young age. He also brings a flare for high-flying acrobatics along with his strikes, giving him a strong combination inside the squared circle. His explosive offense will prove hard to combat for much of the competition.

Expectations

Low. While his in-ring skill exists, Lee seems likely to have been brought in along with HoHo Lun. With an opening round matchup against NXT’s own Rich Swann, he’ll have a hard time pushing into further rounds.
