NXT Superstar Keith Lee had a monumental moment inside the 2020 Royal Rumble Match when he squared off with Brock Lesnar. Lesnar was so impressed by the presence of Keith Lee that he audibly said to Paul Heyman, “who is this motherf—er?”
Speaking with SuperSport, Lee commented on the gravity of that moment. Saying although it was unexpected to get such a strong reaction from 42,000 people, he felt like he was right where he is supposed to be in that moment where he squared off with “The Beast Incarnate.”
“In that moment it felt like that was where I was supposed to be,” Keith began. “Even though I feel like it was slightly unexpected the reaction that I got from 42,000 people. They really wanted Keith Lee to show out. They got something special in my opinion… Maybe in the future, there is a chance that there is Keith Lee versus Brock Lesnar in a one on one match. I feel like I’m one of the few that can go toe to toe with him… Hopefully, that can come to fruition.”
Now the current NXT North American champion, Keith Lee also had a monumental moment at the Survivor Series where he was the final man in the ring with Roman Reigns in a traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match. You can read his comments about that moment at this link.
