Just prior to the NXT Championship match between Aleister Black and Lars Sullivan, Keith Lee was shown sitting ringside.
Dave Meltzer first reported months ago about WWE’s interest in signing him. During the broadcast, the announcers noted that Lee could be a future contender for the NXT title.
Lee finished up his commitments with PWG, Beyond Wrestling, and EVOLVE at the end of last month. At Takeover: Chicago, he was identified as a former WWN Champion.
NXT will tape TV on Thursday Lee will get his first national exposure soon. I’ll just say that he can be awesome if they let him continue doing what he did on the independent scene.
