Keith Lee made it to the final three with Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins in the 5-on-5-on-5 RAW vs SmackDown vs NXT Men’s Elimination Match at WWE Survivor Series. Blackzilla pinned The Beastslayer but was later eliminated by The Big Dog. Despite the loss, Lee earned Reigns’ respect and the entire locker room was in awe of his stunning performance.
WrestlingNews.Co reports that Lee received remarkable reviews backstage. The big man fell short of scoring the victory for his team but won hearts nonetheless.
“He doesn’t complain and he shows up to do the work. We all know how good he is and this was his night to show everyone what he can do. Vince likes him and I think he’ll be on Raw or SmackDown in a few months.”
After last night’s performance, it wouldn’t come off as a surprise if Lee receives a main-roster call-up by Royal Rumble. Blackzilla is one of the finest performers to grace the ring and Survivor Series was the grand stage for him to shine. It appears that Lee is being seen as a top championship material already.
“I would put one of the main belts on him. If they don’t want to beat Bray then put him in there with Brock. I think people can believe Keith can beat Brock. He has what Vince is looking for. I would maybe give him a manager and give him a long run as champion. He works as hard or harder that anyone and never bitches or complains about anything. I’m so happy for him.”
The latest rumors suggest that Lee could be on his way to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 36. This would truly be a tremendous accomplishment for the NXT Superstar provided WWE doesn’t botch plans at the very last minute.
