Keith Lee Looking Forward To Rebuilding His Brand In AEW
Lee became ‘All Elite’ earlier this month
Keith Lee is ‘All Elite’ and fans are excited to see the former NXT and PWG World Champion regain his mojo after a lacklustre run on WWE’s main roster.
Lee himself is excited to get going in AEW, saying the following on Busted Open Radio:
“That first debut was something that was almost overwhelming because, there was a certain amount of freedom that came with it, and also a reality that, regardless of things going on, I'm truly back and available to do what I enjoy. The reality is, we can say I'm now a professional wrestler, but the reality is, I've always been a professional wrestler. I was never some chosen guy… I've always earned my way in any organisation I've ever been a part of. That's probably the most exciting prospect for me, earning my way to an AEW World Championship," he said.
Lee has so far had one match inAEW, and is set for the Face of the Revolution ladder match at the upcoming Revolution PPV. Further afield though, Lee is looking forward to wrestling in front of crowds again, with Mark Henry looking forward to Lee wrestling in front of a hometown Texas crowd once more:
"My last foray and the return to Dallas was such a weird experience for me, and not because of the fans, the fans are always fantastic,” continued Lee. “As a matter of fact, when I debuted for AEW, I had forgotten what it was like to hear them when they recognised it was me. Those are the moments I look forward to, the excitement of the people and what they bring. Being in your home state is something very special. I'm looking forward to all those returns, the new battles, the opportunities and earning my way through things and rebuilding a brand… I don't feel like it's broken or busted… I feel like it was somewhat marred and putting that stamp down of dark, bold ink of 'this is who Keith Lee is.’”
