Keith Lee is undoubtedly one of the best pro wrestlers in the WWE main roster right now, but unfortunately for him, he had been on the shelf for several months and there was no telling when he will be making a return. Vince McMahon also buried Keith Lee for a surprising reason.
Keith Lee finally made his return on Monday Night RAW back in August as he competed in a couple of matches on the show and then various dark matches as WWE is still trying to figure out what to do with Keith Lee for now.
Jim Cornette recently spoke on his Drive Thru podcast, where he criticized WWE’s booking of Keith Lee and stated that Keith Lee might make his way to AEW due to the subpar booking.
“Keith Lee to AEW confirmed, whenever his contract is up. What has this guy done? Not sure whether he’s pis**d Vince off or worse, even worse for him, whether Vince is taking a personal interest in him. I can’t tell these days which that is. They’re either punishing him or else Vince is really interested and this is exactly what he wants him to do.
I don’t know what to say. they put him in a tennis skirt at one point. They pulled him off television for months, of course we later found out it was a health issue. But when they put him back on television he’s just another one of the boys and they beat him as often as not. They changed his music. they switched him from one brand to another. Are they rolling dice on what his gimmick or name or music or personality or whether he’s a babyface or a heel?
