WWE superstar Keith Lee recently spoke with Comic Book about a wide variety of topics, including how he’s been acclimating to the main roster of WWE, his new theme, and much more.
Check out some of the highlights below:
On how he’s acclimating to the main roster:
That first month was all over the place, I think that making it through that was enough for me to get an understanding of where I was and how I needed to approach things going forward. I think that the first three weeks really kind of forced that acclimation, and if I had failed within those first three weeks, I was going to struggle going forward. But I think I’ve done quite fine.
On how his new theme came to be:
No (I wasn’t surprised), because when you look at things, and other wrestlers, and what have you, there hadn’t been anyone else that had to change their music, right? So being that I am the only one that performed mine myself, I think that that creates a different type of connection with the audience,” Lee said. “Especially if they enjoy it, it changes the dichotomy of things. So if you take that special thing to them and you just take it away suddenly, of course they’re not going to be happy about it. I think it’s fairly simple and easy to understand, personally.
I think that the office paid attention to the disgruntled fan base of mine, and they gained respects for their outspoken nature, and said, ‘Okay, Keith. Can you do something for music that doesn’t involve your old song?’ And I said, ‘Sure. If you give me a couple days, I’ll write it up. And then If you want, I can go to the studio and knock it out.’ That’s exactly what happened,” Lee explained. I wrote something, and within a few weeks I went in and recorded it, and just kind of sat on it until I felt like there was a decent time to play it. I think people were even happier with this music than the old music.
