Keith Lee discusses Rick Ross in AEW.
In recent months, All Elite Wrestling has made an effort to bring in names that are big in the world of pop culture. In 2022 alone, AEW had names like Rick Ross, Kevin Gates, Action Bronson, Jermaine Dupri, and Westside Gunn on an episode of Dynamite or Rampage at one point or another.
Many fans are fond of Rick Ross' appearances in the company, as he created a few memorable moments that would go on to become memes across the internet. At one point, Ross called Keith Lee a 'big motherf*cker' on live television.
In a new interview with Fightful's Grapsody podcast, Keith Lee heaped praise on 'The Boss', noting that he's a glowing individual.
"Hey, man. The Boss. He’s great. No one knew and everyone read it that they wanted him back the moment we were on live television and he created another meme. Rick is fantastic, dude. I enjoyed him, every conversation we had. He’s a glowing individual in his own way. He’s got such a positive energy. He’s just fun. He’s confident and I like that. A lot of people won’t believe this, but that promo, one take."
Rick Ross was present on the December 21, 2022 episode of Dynamite when Swerve Strickland debuted his Mogul Affiliates faction and put Keith Lee out of action for a few months. Lee went on to discuss Ross' involvement in the attack, noting that he didn't regret any of it, aside from getting a cinder block caved into his chest.
"Yeah. Welcome to being me attempting to be a professional in the moment, but really wanting to be like, ‘Get me the hell out of here.’ Oh, man. He was great, dude. I don’t regret any of it. I had a blast. I think he had a great time. I think his people had a great time. I mean, I regret getting a cinder block through my chest. But, outside of that, him as a person, great individual. Super fun. More intelligent than anybody would actually give him credit for and as an intellectual, I appreciate that more than most. It was great."
