Keith Lee: Bio
It’s almost impossible to find a superlative that adequately describes what makes WWE Superstar Keith Lee so special.
Upon his arrival to WWE NXT in summer 2018, Lee was quickly touted as one of the biggest free-agent signings in the black-and-yellow brand’s history. Despite the hefty expectations thrust upon him, the decorated super-heavyweight from the independent ranks — a former Texas A&M defensive lineman who was courted for a career in the pros before deciding sports-entertainment was his calling — has more than lived up to the hype.
Graced with incredible speed and mind-blowing agility, the 300-plus pounder moves like a man half his size. Yet, he’s every bit as powerful as you’d expect a man his size to be, if not more so. His clubbing forearm smashes and thunderous chops reverberate throughout arenas, to say nothing about the physical toll they take on the unfortunate recipients. Even Lee’s voice, a calm baritone, conveys the cool confidence of a Superstar who knows he can rise to any challenge but doesn’t feel the need to brag about it.
After a pair of jaw-dropping performances at NXT TakeOver: WarGames and Survivor Series, Lee captured his first championship when he defeated Roderick Strong for the NXT North American Title in an absolute barnburner. Over the next few months, Lee steamrolled several challengers en route to taking on Adam Cole for the NXT Title in a Winner Take All Match at NXT's Great American Bash. Lee pinned Cole in an edge-of-your-seat thriller to become the first Superstar to hold the NXT Championship and North American Title at the same time.
Now on the Raw brand with a monumental win over Randy Orton to his name, Lee continues his search for sports-entertainment’s best competition. It’s time for the entire WWE Universe to bask in his glory.
