Keith Lee will take on Adam Cole in the main event of the Great American Bash. If Lee is able to win then he will become a double champion in NXT. He doesn’t plan on stopping there.
During WWE The Bump (transcription by Ringside News), Matt Camp asked Keith Lee about following in the Texas wrestling footsteps of Terry Funk, the Von Erichs, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and The Undertaker.
Keith Lee said those names gave him goosebumps. He then stated that he wants to change the pro wrestling industry in ways nobody can imagine.
“So you mentioned those names and literally, goosebumps. I don’t know if I’m that dude to do that, but I tell you what when it comes to heart and when it comes to pure passion on what I do and how I do it and for the people I do it for, not only that, but the fact that I buried my coach yesterday — he had a funeral service. For him, for my family, for Texas, for those names you mentioned, yeah I wanna be as great as I can possibly be and I wanna change this industry in ways that people haven’t been able to possibly fathom yet, and that is a goal that I have. Will I reach it? None can say, no one’s a psychic here, but you can better believe that I will give it my absolute best and my absolute all to do so.”
A spoiler from NXT’s Great American Bash could have given away the big ending for Keith Lee’s match against Adam Cole. He will certainly continue working hard past that point to further make his mark in the pro wrestling business.
Will Keith Lee someday be thought of along with the greats in pro wrestling? Sound off in the comments below!
