When Keith Lee was called up to the main roster, there were initial complaints about both his entrance music and his ring gear. There’s been some work done in that regard. During an interview with SI in advance of his big match on Monday Night Raw this week, he was asked about both.
Regarding the ring music, he’s happy there:
“I am very happy with my music. There is one little tweak I intend to make over time, but that’s got to be a timing thing and it’s got to be well done for me to make it work the way I want it to. I have some evolutionary ideas for my current music that just hit. In terms of the song itself, I wrote that myself and a lot of it is very personal. I’m very happy with being able to express myself in that manner. Even the track, the guys that did it are brilliant. I’m extremely happy with the way the track sounds. I’m happy with the music overall, and I look forward to the little tweaks I intend to make down the road.”
The gear, not so much:
“As far as gear goes, my gear is the same as NXT except I have to wear a top right now. Is that my choice? No. But I do what I need to do in order to also keep the people I work for happy. At some point, I will get so big that it won’t matter what other people want because Keith Lee knows what’s best. Someone will figure that out at some point, and then I won’t be wearing a top anymore. Until then, I have no problem with this.”
It remains baffling that talent doesn’t win out over aesthetics in Vince McMahon’s WWE but it is still Vince McMahon’s WWE, so this is what we’ve got.
