Keith Lee recently spoke to the New York Post about a multitude of topics including his Survivor Series 2019 performance, his feud with Dominik Dijakovic, and the NXT/AEW ratings war.
Here are some highlights.
Keith Lee on His Survivor Series 2019 Performance:
“That whole experience was one thing, but the moment it came down to me, Seth [Rollins] and Roman, I think from there right up until that fist bump is all things that I’ll remember because it was the first time mixing it up with people considered to be the two faces of WWE. The honor was immense and full of excitement and energy and passion. It was fantastic.
“If you get in the ring with guys of that caliber and you slip at all, it’s very easy to see, but if you’re full of confidence and able to hold your own on a stage that large with those two faces, I think that alone in and of itself, to command the crowd at the level that I did with those two in the ring made a lot of statements and turned a lot of heads.”
Keith Lee On His Feud With Dominik Dijakovic:
“It was very important because we are each other’s potentially greatest rival, and what does a rival do but bring out the best in you in most cases. So to have the opportunity to compete against an athlete of his caliber makes one of my caliber push even further than normal.”
Keith Lee On If The Main Roster Stars Helped NXT Beat AEW:
“I don’t think anyone was paying attention to that, to be quite honest with you. I think that everyone just wanted to put on the best product that we could, and I don’t think that it honestly has to do with ratings. I feel like a lot of our guys don’t really pay a lot of attention to that. But at the end of the day, if wins come and people are happy about it, then good for them.”
