“Limitless” Keith Lee has been recently invited to the AEW Unrestricted podcast, where he gave some interesting declarations about his arrival at All Elite Wrestling.
Lee stated on the interview that he had a meeting with CEO Tony Khan short time after his WWE release, and explained the following on how its former NXT colleague Adam Cole influenced him in becoming All Elite:
“In the grand scheme of things, there’s a lot of people I know that were here anyway, some friends, some associates, some just mere colleagues, but I kind of felt like the happiness of people such as Adam Cole who is somebody that I place a lot of stock in as a human being.” (H/T WrestlingNews.co)
“There are a lot of people in this industry that you can just trust or get along with at certain levels. But I really like Adam Cole as a person. His testimony for his happiness here was something that made it a little easier. I think that in the grand scheme of things, business, when we got to speaking about that, made sense for me and my plans.” (H/T WrestlingNews.co)
“That’s something that makes it a little easier when you get along with somebody and it also fits your plan and what you’re wanting to do in life. It just helps. So those talks were actually easier than I thought that they would be so it kind of made the decision that much easier.” (H/T WrestlingNews.co)
Keith Lee debuted on the February 9th episode of Dynamite, defeating Private Party’s Isiah Kassidy to earn an opportunity to participate on the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd.
Since then, he has been on multiple confrontations with Powerhouse Hobbs and FTW Champion Ricky Starks.
