Keith Lee On Which Two Legends Motivated Him On His Journey To The WWE

During his appearance on “After The Bell”, Keith Lee revealed that it was Dusty Rhodes and William Regal that motivated him during his 14 year journey to get to the WWE. Here’s what he had to say:

I really wasn’t sure if I was going to continue wrestling and then I had conversation with one Mr. William Regal and Dusty Rhodes—and a brief few words with also Mr. Jim Ross—and I think that without those first two I probably would not have continued wrestling to be completely honest. I pursued a different dream which was just making it on my own, on the indies and building a name out of sheer willpower and eventually, I did enough good deeds and turned enough heads and shocked enough people that eventually they came looking for me and it was completely different that time. It took almost fourteen years to get there so it’s a very long journey for me.

I think that that conversation with Dusty and Regal was the point where I decided to just be myself. I spent a lot of time coming up in wrestling trying to be what everyone thought that I should be in terms of what an ‘air quote’ big guy is, but in my history from sports to martial arts, I’ve always been a very versatile type of athlete. I’ve never been stuck in one thing and that’s how I felt like I should be in wrestling. A lot of people didn’t think that, but after that talk I decided to just listen to myself and bet on myself and at the end of the day it was the greatest decision I had made.
