Keith Lee is on his way to WWE by the looks of it which adds yet another incredible indie wrestling name to WWE’s impressive roster.
But Dave Meltzer discussed Keith Lee on Wrestling Observer Radio where he admitted that while it is excellent that Lee is coming to NXT, it might be an interesting situation in regards to how to book him.
“I think his last indie show is later this month so he’s on his way. So he’s another one. You know he’s really talented but his style is not their style. He got pretty good so it’s going to be a pretty interesting thing. I wonder if they’re gonna treat him like [Donovan] Dijak who’s been you know he still hasn’t gotten to tv yet even though he is working the house shows.”
Whether WWE tries to alter Keith Lee’s in-ring performance or not is another story. It will just be great to have him on the WWE payroll because he’s incredibly talented.
But WWE needs to be careful not to change him too much because they don’t want to risk losing that special something that helped Lee excel to this point with such a unique set of skills.
