Report: WWE Wanted To Sign ROH's Rush & Dragon Lee

WWE wanted to bring in La Faccion Ingobernable...

Rush and Dragon Lee of La Faccion Ingobernable both returned to the ring in Ring Of Honor over the weekend at Final Battle 2020. Lee retained the ROH World Television Title against Tony Deppen while Rush defeated Brody King in the main event to hold on to the ROH World Championship.

A recent report from PWInsider noted Rush's contract was expected to expire at the end of December and other promotions were interested in signing Dragon Lee. ROH COO Joe Koff also told PWInsider that "conversations are ongoing" between Dragon Lee, Rush and the promotion about their future. 

Their victories at Final Battle would suggest they have re-signed with ROH since Koff's interview, but there has been no official announcement as of yet.

Dave Meltzer did talk about the situation on Wrestling Observer Radio, though, and noted WWE was interested in signing both men. 

Meltzer said: "So, obviously they have signed for another year and their father is going to be a regular in their programme... WWE was after Rush and Dragon Lee, especially Dragon Lee, and he decided to stay. I mean Dragon Lee, his thing is he wanted to work New Japan and, obviously, this year it was impossible because of COVID to do that."
