Keith Lee had a tremendous run in NXT as he was both the NXT and North American Champion. Unfortunately, his main roster run in WWE was far from ideal. It seems Lee was given some interesting advice as well.

After being given the Bearcat Lee gimmick which failed to get over with fans for good reason, Keith Lee was released by WWE last year. This certainly took fans and professional wrestlers by surprise.

Keith Lee shocked the world as he made his debut on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite and went on to defeat Isiah Kassidy in the first qualifier for the Face of The Revolution Ladder Match.

While speaking on his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about Keith Lee’s impressive debut in AEW. Booker T then advised Keith Lee to immediately go for the main event level scene in the company.


”Keith Lee could be that player, and immediately, he goes to the top of the food chain. As being one of those guys that can be a player from an AEW World Title perspective. Put him right in the mix with anybody, and I think you’ve got something there.”

We will have to wait and see how Keith Lee will be booked in AEW as fans certainly have a lot of expectations from him.
