During this week’s episode of NXT, Keith Lee defeated Roderick Strong of The Undisputed Era to capture the North American Championship.
Lee, who also recently spoke about being rejected by WWE three times earlier on in his career, spoke to WWE.com about his win: “Let me educate you on something about Keith Lee. If you saw the battle that happened out there: four men trying to take down one Limitless specimen—a deity if you will—then you see the result.
“All it takes is an opportunity. Cap off? No, sir, I’m just getting started. You see, now there was a great end to 2019. A fantastic beginning to the year 2020, but we don’t stop here. Every day is a grind. Every day we become better than the day before. This is the beginning of what could possibly become the most prestigious champion in all of WWE because now the NXT North American Championship is also like me…limitless.”
Lee is heavily rumoured to be a part of this Sunday’s men’s Royal Rumble match.
