Keith Lee Makes AEW Debut


Keith Lee is All Elite.


On the February 9 episode of AEW Dynamite, Lee made his AEW debut. The former NXT Champion turned out to the mystery signing Tony Khan teased, and he faced Isiah Kasidy in a Face of the Revolution ladder match qualifier.


Lee overpowered Kassidy from the start and showcased his limitless power. Even with Marq Quen interfered, Kassidy was no match for the powerhouse. In the end, he hit the Sprit Bomb for the win. When Private Party tried to attack Lee after the match, he made them regret it, as he effortlessly left both men lying.


After the bout, Khan confirmed that Lee has signed with AEW.

Lee was one of WWE’s brightest stars during his time on NXT. He held both the NXT Championship and the North American Championship. He joined the main roster in August 2020 and enjoyed some initial success before medical issues and inconsistent booking derailed his run with the company. WWE released him on November 4.
