Keith Lee had an amazing run in NXT as he was both the NXT and North American Champion. Fans had high hopes for him on the main roster in WWE but it turned out to be a massive disappointment. It seems Lee opened up about his presentation in WWE and AEW.

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 came as a shock to fans and pro wrestlers alike.

Keith Lee shocked the world as he made his debut on previous episode of AEW Dynamite, where he beat Isiah Kassidy in the first qualifier for the Face of The Revolution Ladder Match.

While speaking with the New York Post, talked about the way he was presented in WWE and compared it to his current presentation in AEW. He stated that he filed a void in AEW unlike in WWE thanks to his performance in AEW so far.


“Yeah, it felt like, not even just for me but for wrestling in general, it felt like a void had been filled. There are a lot of disingenuous things that sometimes have to happen in this industry and are asked of us but I think that the difference in what I was doing (in WWE) versus what people know me for was a little too vast. And for a difference that big, I think it has to be a gradual shift and so the things that felt abnormal felt normal again on that night and it’s like a lot of wrongs were rewritten. Now there’s a chance to move forward in a different way. It was almost like a breath of fresh air or a sigh of relief.”

We will have to wait and see how Keith Lee will be booked in AEW as fans want him to win the Face Of The Revolution ladder match as well.
