WWE Superstar, Keith Lee, has hit back at those who have complained about his image overhaul since ‘The Limitless One’ was called up to WWE’s main roster.
When Lee appeared on Monday Night Raw following SummerSlam, he had undergone a drastic overhaul. Forty eight hours earlier he was losing the NXT Championship to Karrion Kross in the main event of NXT TakeOver 30 and yet here he was on the re brand, sans entrance music and sporting what can only be described as a filly leotard type ring attire.
Despite him having updated both his entrance theme and war gear – he now sports a singlet along with his patented trunks – his look has still been questioned by some and now the star has spoken out about the radical change that was implemented on him.
Sitting down with Sports Illustrated, the colossus went into detail about the reasons for the changes to his character and the new theme he debuted at Survivor Series on November 22:
“I am very happy with my music. There is one little tweak I intend to make over time, but that’s got to be a timing thing and it’s got to be well done for me to make it work the way I want it to. I have some evolutionary ideas for my current music that just hit. In terms of the song itself, I wrote that myself and a lot of it is very personal. I’m very happy with being able to express myself in that manner. Even the track, the guys that did it are brilliant. I’m extremely happy with the way the track sounds. I’m happy with the music overall, and I look forward to the little tweaks I intend to make down the road.”
Attention then turned to the biggest and most talked about alteration, his in-ring image:
“As far as gear goes, my gear is the same as NXT except I have to wear a top right now. Is that my choice? No. But I do what I need to do in order to also keep the people I work for happy. At some point, I will get so big that it won’t matter what other people want because Keith Lee knows what’s best. Someone will figure that out at some point, and then I won’t be wearing a top anymore. Until then, I have no problem with this.”
While Keith Lee’s words suggest that management have forced the change upon him, his followers will at least be glad to see that his ability in the ring hasn’t changed and the star is only getting better and better with each passing week.
On the November 30 Monday Night Raw, Lee fought Riddle and AJ Style in a losing effort in a Sudden Death Triple Threat Match for the right to challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at TLC on December 20.
