Keith Lee made his AEW debut in February when he defeated Isaiah Kassidy to qualify for the Face of the Revolution ladder match. Since then, Lee has aligned himself with Swerve Strickland. Keith has been a fan favorite ever since he walked out of the curtain.
The Limitless One had a very strong run in NXT, winning multiple championships. He is hoping to ramp up that productivity with AEW. Keith Lee is ready to help raise the bar for Tony Khan’s company.
Lee appeared on MackMania and was asked about the possibility of working with ROH once Tony Khan relaunches the brand. If the circumstances were right, he would be more than willing to go. Keith Lee said he is focused on getting things done in AEW for now.
“Considering that I have just recently joined AEW, I’m pretty committed to trying to raise the bar there in a multitude of ways. Something about more marketing or an interest in growing the name itself is kind of my goal and purpose right now.
Ring of Honor is something that I haven’t seen since 2017. I’d be willing to have a match there under the right circumstances. There are quite a few [potential matchups] that are interesting, like Mr. Samoa Joe. He’s a circumstance where I would consider him to be a bit of a mentor, especially from the business side of things. Taught me a lot.
For all intents and purposes, he’s the reason that I ever took a chance going to the east coast. If it was not for his advice, him and Brian Cage, I never would have gone to the east coast. I never would have had that match with Dijak that kind of changed the trajectory of my career as a whole. I could have been just another dude stuck in Texas doing random stuff. There’s something special about those three letters, especially when you come from it and it’s helped build who you are. I’d be open to fighting there.”
Keith Lee has plenty of potential huge matches peppering the AEW roster. Time will tell how many of those Tony Khan will book. Keith Lee is ready and willing to do what it takes to help build the AEW brand.
