It was reported weeks ago, but Keith Lee’s appearance during NXT Takeover: Chicago last night confirmed any reports about him signing with the company. A performer as unique, experienced, and talented as Lee is going to be a force to be reckoned with on NXT programming. However, it might take some time for him to receive a bigger push.

After NXT Takeover: Chicago was over last night, Triple H took part in his usual media conference call and had quite a bit to say about Keith Lee’s move to NXT. As transcribed by Rajah, here’s what The Game revealed about his plans to push Lee on NXT television:

“I think I’m gonna let him land first. I saw Keith walk through the entrance way at the arena this afternoon. He stood on the same spot on the stage while we were walking through rehearsals for probably for an hour with just a blown-away look on his face.

I think it’s gonna take a minute for Keith Lee to land on the ground. But once he does, I am expecting big things from Keith Lee. He’s a phenomenal talent, big dude that should not be able to do the things he does. He’s a phenomenal talent. I can’t wait to work with him, our team to work with him to help him take everything that he’s done so far and just take it to a whole other level.”

Keith Lee's Announcement

Obviously, HHH is talking about the transition of learning the “WWE style” of wrestling and establishing a character for the WWE Universe. There’s some work to do regarding an on-screen character, but The Game said it best. Once Keith Lee gets comfortable and settled in NXT, he’s going to do some great things for the brand over the coming months.
