Booker T Thought Keith Lee Was Going To Be WWE Champion
"That was a spot Keith Lee was about to step right in to, and all of a sudden it was all shut down like that.”
When Keith Lee made the jump from NXT to WWE’s main roster, most of us assumed it was only a matter of time before Lee would get his hands on the WWE Title.
Unfortunately things haven’t panned out that way for Lee thus far, and even WWE Hall of Famer Booker T was convinced The Limitless one was going to be champion:
"He's definitely a guy that's on my radar because he was a guy that was making a lot of noise,” said Booker on his Hall of Fame podcast, “He's a guy that was touted to be, you know, a guy that was going to make some 'major moves' in the WWE - in that title picture. Bobby Lashley picked up the slack pretty much... came in and took the reins and took off, you know, got the rocket on his back and took off straight to the moon. But, for a second there, that was a spot Keith Lee was about to step right in to, and all of a sudden it was all shut down like that.”
Lee’s future in WWE is a mystery from the outside looking in, but if he returns to the product soon, then it may only be a matter of time before he builds his momentum back up.
