Keith Lee claims WWE didn’t like the way he spoke

Former WWE Superstar Keith Lee has spoken out against his former employer regarding his attitude towards the way he delivered his promotions.

Keith Lee signed for WWE in 2018 and made a name for himself playing for the NXT brand. However, Lee was released from his contract in 2021, after a fairly subdued run on the WWE main roster.

In a recent chat with Hall of Famer Mark Henry on Busted Open Radio, The Bearcat explained that WWE may not like the cadences of his voice as well as the way he delivered his promos.

“Look, this is something that Mark and I talked about years ago, maybe I think I was still in NXT back then. He knows I’m open to that. Especially more than in this particular place, most people had a problem with my way of speaking and my behavior in the way I speak, and my cadence. Lee added, “I don’t know what it is. Maybe my voice or maybe her vocal tone, anyway, it was a bit of a problem there.” (H/T Wrestling ITR)

Keith Lee certainly had a unique way of delivering his lines during his promotions for WWE.
