Keith Lee entered the WWE main roster as a former NXT Champion with a lot of eyes on him. That can sometimes result in a recipe for disappointed fans.
Ringside News has learned that there is currently pushback on Keith Lee because of Vince McMahon. Lee is incredibly gifted for his size and he moves around well, but they have yet to find that special spark in McMahon’s opinion.
One tenured writer confirmed to us that Keith Lee’s promos “have not caught on fire.” Then again, it was also explained to us that nobody is really excelling in that area apart from Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Randy Orton, Edge, The Street Profits, and Lacey Evans.
Keith Lee was one of the people who Vince McMahon handpicked to go back down for the “big men classes” at the WWE Performance Center. He obviously believes that the Limitless Lee needs a bit more tuning up.
The jury is still out when it comes to Elimination Chamber. As we exclusively reported, the card is still work in progress. They originally had Keith Lee in the United States Title match on the show, but that is now up in the air.
