Keith Lee Says Passionate Roster & Inclusive Nature Have Helped NXT Become A Phenomenon

NXT is critically acclaimed by fans across the globe. What started out as the evolution of the WWE developmental system, has morphed into its own promotion with a passionate fanbase that creates a palpable vibe when presented on television.

Speaking with SuperSport, NXT North American Champion Keith Lee opens up about what he thinks makes NXT so special, citing that adaptation to the wants and needs of the fans and a strong passionate audience are key components to the recipe of NXT’s success.

“It’s a mixture of things,” Keith began. “From being inclusive, trying to make sure that the fans are enjoying whatever it is that they are watching, adapting to them in general, in essence giving them what they want. But, also there is a certain level of passion that goes into it. I feel like there is not a lot of talent in the world that takes the amount of pride that we do, in trying to produce the greatest professional wrestling product that we possibly can.”

Furthermore, Keith would say that he wants to continue elevating NXT while also elevating and changing the perception of what a larger athlete is capable of.

He continued, “For me, the goal is to continue that trend and not only do that for NXT but also for my own brand, as a representative for a larger than normal athlete. It’s my duty to represent in a manner that makes me undeniable, not just for me, but for the people that come after me.”
