Keith Lee is 35 years old, made his wrestling debut in 2005. He has wrestled on the independent circuit at Evolve, AAW, ROH, PWG. He has held the world title in PWG. He found his way to WWE NXT in 2018. He has become a fan favorite, after his performance at WWE Survivor Series. He put himself on that map by giving “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns a run for is money. Lee also has respect from former WWE superstars. Tuesday night on WWE Backstage, CM Punk picked Keith Lee to win this year’s Royal Rumble. Everyone has high hopes for Lee after this win. He has the charisma and passion to be one of the greatest superstars WWE has ever seen. Winning the North American Championship is Lee’s first title with WWE, but it will not be his last. For he is truly limitless.
It has been reported since then that he was not happy with the booking of his character and that he was treated poorly by the WWE medical staff. It was reported at the beginning of October, that Phil Brooks signed a deal with FOX to work on WWE Backstage at the start of November. As per multiple sources, We also know that he got this deal directly through FOX and had no contact to or from WWE.
As wrestling fans, we have to understand that this does not mean that we will see Cm Punk back in a WWE ring. Even though Cm Punk and WWE ended on bad terms, He was still one of the greatest characters WWE ever had. He was a straight shooter and had the 2nd longest WWE Championship title run in the companies history. I always say, wrestlers that leave the business, always find their way back to the business. It is in their blood. 6 years ago Cm Punk broke many hearts with his departure. Let’s not get your hopes up fans, and get your heart broken again.
