Keith Lee recently spoke to ESPN. Here are some of the highlights:

On defeating Matt Riddle for the WWN Championship:

“As far as winning, and becoming champion for WWN, I think that’s obviously a quite the large deal, considering I’ve been a part of WWN for less than a year. It makes me super-duper proud, and I think that my focus has [already] shifted to the growth of this title and raising the prestige of it. … Now my interest is in taking this title to other countries, defending it and making it a world title. Typically, once I get a championship, its value rises — and it will be no different this time.”

On leaving Ring of Honor:

“You know, when I made that decision, I was 100 percent comfortable with it then. I felt like I made the right decision. Other people will tell you, ‘Now it’s justified — now I made the right decision.’ No, I made the right decision then, and I’ve been able to capitalize on opportunities given to me. I think that knowing that I was going to get opportunities to push myself and have the matches I believe I’m worthy of, and opportunities to be in a position where I can stand out or have the opportunity to run with the ball, so to speak, meant more to me.”
