Keith Lee certainly had a solid run in NXT, winning the NXT and North American Championships. His main roster run in comparison was underwhelming and disappointing for fans. AEW has also been criticized for making Keith Lee just another wrestler.
Keith Lee was released by WWE last year after he failed to get over with the fans due to his Bearcat Lee gimmick. Afterwards, he made his way to AEW earlier this year as well.
While speaking on Wrestling’s Bro Show, Vince Russo talked about Satnam Singh’s debut on AEW Dynamite this week. He then proceeded to criticize AEW for making Keith Lee just another wrestler on the roster.
“I think Page will agree with this, and I’m telling from a writer’s point of view. Bro, they are bringing in so many new guys at such a rapid pace, bro; you’re not gonna get anybody over. Every week it is just somebody else. Keith Lee is an example. They brought Keith Lee, and we are four weeks later, he is just a wrestler on the roster and nothing more.”
Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland lost to Team Taz on this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite. We’ll have to see what is next in store for Lee in the coming weeks.
