WWE NXT North American Champion Keith Lee was recently a guest on WWE Backstage this week to talk about several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
Facing off against Brock Lesnar at this year’s Royal Rumble:
It was intense. When you get in the ring with someone that is a specimen like that, you have no choice but to feel it. For me, competition is something that excites me.
Going one-on-one with Roman Reigns in the Survivor Series match finale:
That day was obviously just as intense, a day where I didn’t really know what was going on, being one of the last three to be in that match. Quite the squabble with Roman Reigns, the first person to kick out of the spirit bomb for crying out loud, then speared me out of my boots and onto my neck, but that moment there, that set the tone for me. After that was over with, he told me, straight up, ‘I want a one-on-one match with you.’
CM Punk predicting he’d win the Royal Rumble:
Something like that is really hard to process for me, clearly, someone I haven’t met—at the end of the day when you hear something like that from people you’ve never met. When you meet these people and you realize how much they view you and where they view you, and the respect that have for you, it’s such a touching experience to know that what you do is something that’s respected by people that you’ve have studied and admired for you career. It’s awesome.
