Keith Lee was absent from WWE television for quite a few months. Due to this many fans started to worry about Keith Lee’s status in the company. Lee eventually returned and it seems he likes Vince McMahon’s approach to his character.
Since his return to the company, Keith Lee has competed in a few matches on Monday Night RAW, especially against former NXT Champion Karrion Kross. However, he has also competed in several dark matches on Monday Night RAW and Friday Night Smackdown as well.
Many fans certainly didn’t like the numerous changes Keith Lee had to go through after his return. This included changes to his entrance, look and also his name. This included Lee being changed to Bearcat Lee, a name most fans simply want nothing to do with.
While speaking on the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, Keith Lee talked about his current character on Monday Night RAW. Lee was asked about how hands-on Vince McMahon is regarding his character. Lee stated that McMahon is quite hands-on and it is something he needs.
“One thing I’ve had fun with is that it’s been probably one of the greatest challenges. It’s something that people point out, ‘you’re a naturally nice guy, I want to see the other side.’ I’m like, ‘You don’t want that guy.’ The professional Keith is the best case scenario because the guy that played football and the guy who has been through a lot in his life is a different being altogether. They want it and it’s coming and there’s not much anybody will be able to do about it because when I get to that mindset and I’m so fixated, it’s kind of a jet that is hard to stop. Trying to stop a jet with a piece of paper. It’ll be interesting.
“I would say he’s been quite hands on, which is honestly something I need because I want to know what he wants as opposed to making a guess or estimation or hypothesis. If I know what he wants directly, it makes it that much easier to give him what he’s looking for. He’s the man, he runs this, if he wants a specific thing out of his talent, then the talent is to give him what he wants.”
Even an ex WWE writer recently stated that Keith Lee will never get over in WWE. Jim Cornette also previously stated that Keith Lee could be making his way to AEW after the way he is being treated in WWE. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Keith Lee.
