Keith Lee had a memorable run in NXT where he won both the NXT and NXT North American Championships. His main roster run in comparison has been quite subpar and on top of that, Keith Lee also hasn’t been seen on WWE television since February.
Keith Lee defeated Randy Orton in his debut on Monday Night RAW and eventually challenged Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship and lost in the process.
While speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about Keith Lee’s absence from WWE television. Booker T believed that Keith Lee would have been WWE Champion before Bobby Lashley.
“He’s definitely a guy that’s on my radar because he was a guy that was making a lot of noise. He’s a guy that was touted to be, you know, a guy that was going to make some ‘major moves’ in the WWE – in that title picture. Bobby Lashley picked up the slack pretty much… came in and took the reins and took off, you know, got the rocket on his back and took off straight to the moon. But, for a second there, that was a spot Keith Lee was about to step right in to, and all of a sudden it was all shut down like that.”
We will have to wait and see when Keith Lee will be able to make his return to WWE television as he is one of the most talented Superstars in the company and it would simply be a shame if the company has nothing planned for him.
