Keith Lee Open To Working For ROH, Committed To Raising The Bar In AEW

Keith Lee hasn't been part of Ring of Honor since 2017 and was mainly featured as a tag team wrestler alongside Shane Taylor during his time with the company.

Lee is now part of AEW, which is tied to ROH as Tony Khan runs both promotions. The crossover has already been evident with Samoa Joe, who is also signed to AEW, winning the ROH TV Title on AEW TV and more ROH Titles being won and defended on AEW TV.

Appearing on MackMania with Evan T. Mack, Flobo Boyce, and Jack Farmer, Keith Lee was asked about the possibility of wrestling for ROH.

"Considering that I have just recently joined AEW, I'm pretty committed to trying to raise the bar there, in a multitude of ways. Something about more marketing or an interest in growing the name itself is kind of my goal and purpose right now. Ring of Honor is something that I haven't seen since 2017. I'd be willing to have a match there under the right circumstances. There are quite a few (names) that are interesting, like Mr. Samoa Joe. He's a circumstance where I would consider him to be a bit of a mentor, especially from the business side of things, taught me a lot. For all intents and purposes, he's the reason that I ever took a chance going to the east coast. If it was not for his advice, him and Brian Cage, I never would have gone to the east coast. I never would have had that match with (Donovan) Dijak that kind of changed the trajectory of my career as whole. I could have been just another dude stuck in Texas doing random stuff. There's something special about those three letters, especially when you come from it and it's helped build who you are. I'd be open to fighting there," he replied.

Lee and Dijak (T-BAR in WWE) had a series of matches on the Independent scene including bouts in NEW, EVOLVE, and PWG.

Lee is currently teaming with Swerve Strickland on AEW television while Joe is involved in a feud with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, and Satnam Singh.
