Wes Lee: A Brief Biography

Devon Everhart Aikens, better known by his ring name Wes Lee, is a professional wrestler who hails from America and is currently signed to WWE where he performs on NXT.


Lee is the current NXT North American Champion and also the superstar with the record for holding the said title longest. Lee has also had significant success in tag team division winning the NXT tag team gold twice in the past.


Professional Wrestling Career


Indies and Impact Wrestling (2011-2021)


Aikens made his pro-wrestling debut in 2011 under the ring name Dezmond Xavier. Xavier fought in several indie promotions while being called up to mainstream wrestling by Impact Wrestling in sometime around 2017.


During his 10-year pro wrestling career before joining WWE, Xavier won various tag team titles including the AAW Tag Team Championship, CZW Tag Team Championship, PWG World Tag Team Championship, and PWR Tag Team Championship. The other half in all these title victories was Zachary Wentz, who fans better know by the name Nash Carter.


WWE NXT (2020-Present)


Aikens signed a contract with WWE in December 2020 under NXT. He and Wentz, both made their debut in WWE in the January of 2021. Aikens was renamed to Wes Lee while Zachary Wentz was renamed to Nash Carter. Their team was called MSK.


They made their debuts in the Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament and managed to win it in the first go. Their rookie year would go on to be highlighted by another landmark victory when they defeated The Grizzled Young Veterans and Legado Del Fantasma at NXT TakeOver: Stand and Deliver to grab the vacant NXT Tag Team Championships.


The duo would go on to defend their titles numerous times over the next few months before losing it to The Imperium at NXT: Halloween Havoc. However, their defeat was short-lived as they would go on to reclaim the belts at NXT: Stand and Deliver, the event they won titles a year ago as well.

Carter was then released by WWE in April 2022 over domestic abuse allegations. As a result, MSK was disbanded and Lee lost the tag team titles. Lee then went on a solo rampage, eventually getting a shot at the vacant NXT North American Championship at NXT Halloween Havoc in a five-man ladder match.


Lee managed to win the match and won the title. As of May 2023, Lee is booked to defend his gold against Tyler Bate and Joe Gacy in a Triple Threat Match at NXT Battleground.
