WWE Producer, Shane Helms, has taken a verbal shot at those names who have been sent back to the WWE Performance Center to undergo classes.

Following the news that Keith Lee, Dabba-Kato, Mace and Omos – the bodyguard to AJ Styles – had been required by Vince McMahon himself to attend classes twice a week with Adam Pearce and Drew Gulak in order to refine their in-ring ability, social media exploded in disgust.

While three of the four would have welcomed more time time to hone their craft, the uproar came when Keith Lee’s name was included. An already well-rounded athlete, many didn’t see why the star had been lumped into a class with guys who had much less experience than him.

Now, the former Hurricane, has weighed in with his opinion on Twitter comparing WWE stars to talent in other sports.

Stating that no WWE Superstar can rest on their laurels because they made it to the main roster, Shane Helms had this to say to and about those names who had ben assigned to the twice weekly classes:

“Players that make it to the NBA, NFL, NHL etc. don’t stop practicing and drilling just because they made it to the “top.” Being signed to a major promotion doesn’t mean stop trying to perfect your craft. That’s when you work even harder to perfect your craft!”

It has been heavily rumoured that WWE have massive plans for Keith Lee going into 2021. One of those is a potential WrestleMania 37 main event against both Drew McIntyre – should the Scot not be picked for Roman Reigns – and Brock Lesnar in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship.

Since making his debut on Monday Night Raw the night after SummerSlam, Keith Lee has been at the forefront of WWE in his rivalries with Randy Orton, Braun Strowman and as one of the three men in the Triple Threat Match to determine a number one contender for the WWE Championship at TLC.
