Lee noted on Twitter that he will not be at EVOLVE’s show taking place in Melrose, MA in June.
Was working on something…but I am not certain it will work out at this point. Closest thing may be Detroit with Evolve at this point. https://t.co/RnEIn8G3yT

The story notes that Lee got mixed reviews during his match with Kassius Ohno during WrestleMania Axxess. A PWTorch source noted that he might have to adjust his style when he starts with WWE.
Another name that has been offered a deal is WALTER. However, it does not look like he will be starting with them anytime soon. PWTorch confirmed that WALTER will now be taking bookings through September, which seemingly indicates that he is not expected to start with them soon. The paperwork process for international signings usually takes longer.
