It’s a good place to be. There are a lot of wrestlers in WWE at the momenta and some of them are going to be much bigger stars than others. At the end of the day, what matters more than anything else is what Vince McMahon thinks of you. If the boss finds someone interesting, they are going to a big star in a hurry and that is the case with a newly promoted WWE star.
Last Sunday at Payback, Keith Lee defeated Randy Orton in the biggest victory of his career. It was Lee’s first major match on the main roster and he defeated Orton in less than seven minutes, clean with his signature Spirit Bomb. That is the kind of thing you don’t see too often but it shows you that someone thinks something of Lee. That someone is McMahon himself, and he has important plans for Lee.
According to TalkSport, McMahon told Orton to make Lee a star at Payback as McMahon wants to “push Lee to the moon.” This comes after Orton had expressed a desire to work with NXT talent such as Adam Cole or Tommaso Ciampa but was turned down. The match was set up as a rematch after Orton defeated Lee via disqualification on Monday Night raw when Drew McIntyre interfered. There is no word on what is next for Lee.
The two worked well together. Check out what Lee and Orton did at Payback:
Opinion: This is good to hear as WWE needs some fresh faces near the top of the card. You can only run with the same people in the main event scene for so long and Lee is someone who seems like he could make a big impact in a hurry. Hopefully Lee can go a long way on the main roster as he has all the tools to be a top star in the blink of an eye, which is what WWE seems to see in him as well.
What do you think of Lee? How far can he go in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
