A couple of months ago Keith Lee made his All Elite Wrestling debut after being fired from WWE not long after being promoted to the main roster. After a solo start, Tony Khan's company paired him with Swerve Strickland, also a former member of the NXT roster.
During a chat on Busted Open Radio, Billy Ray expressed concern about Limitless, talking about his match paired with Strickland against Ricky Starks.
What's next for Keith Lee?
"I'm not really sure if Keith Lee is where Keith Lee needs to be.
So, I'm just going to expose everything. Look, I was one of the first to say that there is something wrong with Keith Lee. Not that there is anything. that's wrong with him like he can't find himself the way he was able to be on NXT.
I said that when they called him on the main roster, and I still believe it now." Obviously, it also takes time to allow AEW to find the right storyline for him, also because he has recently arrived and both he and the company need to know each other better, but what is certain is that Keith Lee is a great performer who deserves.
really to be in the spotlight of any company. At NXT he really managed to shine by even winning both single titles, just a pity that his reign as a double champion did not last long and that then on the main roster he practically did nothing.
On his latest Raw experience, Limitless said: "When I got back, I don't understand what happened. In my first match, I lost to Lashley. In the second match, I lost to Killer Kross. In the middle of the show, Vince he dragged me into a room because he wanted to talk to me.
In the middle of RAW, he tells me we had to review some things we were doing. In that conversation, he basically said, 'Listen, I need you to do one thing in particular. You need to be what I say.' I was like, 'Listen, I work for you.
So if that's what you want, then that's what we're obviously going to do.' Keith Lee also seems to have referenced the health issues he discussed a few months back, suggesting that he paid for all out-of-pocket expenses that came with his treatment and recovery.
Last month, The former NXT Champion took to social media to explain why he had been sidelined from WWE television for seven months, saying that a combination of a COVD-19 diagnosis and the discovery of a heart inflammation had led to some "very scary times."
