WWE may be eyeing independent wrestling star, Keith Lee.
In the past, Vince McMahon has had a very specific idea in mind for what ‘sports entertainment’ would look like, and thus guys on the independent scene were either not getting signed, or not being used correctly when they were with the WWE. Yet, with NXT now operating at an incredibly high level, we’ve seen guys like Samoa Joe, Neville, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Owens, and plenty more come to WWE. Now there are rumors that another indie megastar could be on the way.
Before we start out, we have to stress that these are just rumors, so take them with a grain of salt. Still, after a recent AAW show, Keith Lee leaned into the rumors.
Lee is one of the biggest and most athletic performers on the independent scene, and he’s been tearing it up with Evolve, Progress, PWG, and many other promotions over the past few years, and although he denied a recent report that he was on the way to WWE, he is now dropping hints that it’s a very real possibility.
Hmm, what put this on your mind? I'd say this.— Keith Lee (@RealKeithLee) April 13, 2018
If one phrase holds true in wrestling, it's "Never say never."
Only time unveils what the future holds.
Until then, we continue to grind 😁😁 https://t.co/6wTX5vi7g8
"Limitless" Keith Lee responded to a fan asking him about a WWE run by saying; “Never say never.” While that’s the typical response when indie wrestlers are asked about a WWE run, his actions at a recent AAW show tell us a bit more. Lee gave a speech that can be regarded as a farewell speech, putting over his partner and opponents, and claiming he doesn’t know what the future holds. Considering he performed against both Kassius Ohno and Lars Sullivan of NXT over WrestleMania weekend, the speculation now seems quite real. Lee is currently reigning as PWG Champion after dethroning Chuck Taylor at a recent event.
It might not happen right away, but it sure does seem like Lee is NXT bound.
So what do you guys think? Would you like to Bask in his Glory under the NXT umbrella? Are you aware of Limitless Keith Lee? Who would you like to see him face in WWE? Let us know all your thoughts and ideas in the comments below.
