ROH World Television and Tag Team Champion Dragon Lee will not be competing on Ring of Honor’s 19th Anniversary pay-per-view this Friday. On ROH ‘Week By Week’, backstage correspondent and interviewer Quinn McKay stated that Lee recently underwent a minor surgery and won’t be able to fly in for his matches. F4WOnline’s Dave Meltzer added that Lee suffered a broken eardrum.

Lee was scheduled to defend the TV Title against Tracy Williams along with teaming with Kenny King to defend their ROH World Tag Team Titles against Williams and Rhett Titus.

Those title matches will take place as scheduled as Kenny King is defending the World TV Title against Williams on behalf of Dragon Lee. As far as the tag team match, King’s new partner is fellow La Faccion Ingobernables member and father to Dragon Lee and RUSH, Bestia del Ring.
