Keith Lee understands what T-Bar (fka Donovan Dijak/Dominik Dijakovic) is going through in WWE and how lack of being used can become frustrating.
After initially being pushed in Retribution, the group quickly became a mid-card act. After the group was broken up, T-Bar and Mac were booked as wrestlers to put others over. T-Bar’s last match on Raw came in February and his last SmackDown bout was in April for the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. He has been mostly used on Main Event.
After Monday’s Main Event taping, T-Bar tweeted, “I just need an opportunity." The AEW star replied with a GIF from The Office which noted: “Indubitably.”
Lee and T-Bar have been friends for years as they had memorable bouts on the independent scene including a match at PWG Battle of Los Angeles in 2017. They later both signed with NXT where they feuded and had some great matches including the incredible North American Championship bout at NXT TakeOver: Portland in 2020.
Their last match against each other came in November 2020. After multiple changes in his booking on the main roster, Lee was let go by WWE in November 2021, before signing with AEW that February.
Lee has been put into a tag team with Swerve Strickland as they came up short in a triple threat match at AEW Double Or Nothing against Team Taz and champions Jurassic Express for the AEW Tag Team Titles.
