Keith Lee Open To ROH Match, Names Samoa Joe As Possible Opponent
Keith Lee vs. Samoa Joe in ROH?
Could we see Keith Lee in Tony Khan's Ring Of Honor?
Speaking with MackMania, The Limitless One admitted that while his focus is on AEW, he would be open to a match in ROH, naming Samoa Joe as an opponent that interests him.
"Considering that I have just recently joined AEW, I'm pretty committed to trying to raise the bar there, in a multitude of ways. Something about more marketing or an interest in growing the name itself is kind of my goal and purpose right now. Ring of Honor is something that I haven't seen since 2017. I'd be willing to have a match there under the right circumstances," Lee began.
"There are quite a few (names) that are interesting, like Mr Samoa Joe. He's a circumstance where I would consider him to be a bit of a mentor, especially from the business side of things, taught me a lot. For all intents and purposes, he's the reason that I ever took a chance going to the east coast. If it was not for his advice, him and Brian Cage, I never would have gone to the east coast. I never would have had that match with (Donovan) Dijak that kind of changed the trajectory of my career as a whole," he continued.
"I could have been just another dude stuck in Texas doing random stuff. There's something special about those three letters, especially when you come from it and it's helped build who you are. I'd be open to fighting there."
Keith Lee previously performed in ROH from 2015 until 2017 as one-half of The Pretty Boy Killers with Shane Taylor.
Lee and Dijak (now T-Bar in WWE) had several matches on the independent wrestling scene in 2016 and 2017, including for the likes of NEW, EVOLVE, and PWG.
