Keith Lee has confirmed when Tony Khan got into contact with him to join All Elite Wrestling following his WWE release.
Appearing on the AEW Unrestricted Podcast, the former NXT Champion revealed that AEW President Tony Khan made him a priority immediately.
When asked about when he decided to come to All Elite Wrestling, Lee answered:
“I don’t know if I should even say this stuff, but it’s fine because it wasn’t a business thing or anything. That release happened and within three days, Tony found a way to get in touch with me. I was actually really impressed with that considering we had never spoken before. We had some really laid back conversations and got to know each other a little bit. That’s something that helped because that’s some of my trust that’s a little disgruntled. We had a conversation and as time wore on, things got easier and we met up and I have a thing where I must meet a person in person, I’m a ‘people feeler’ as opposed to listening to things. I’m an energy guy. When I did meet him, I decided that he’s a fairly stand up guy and I really enjoyed my time with him, what he’s about, talking football and all that good stuff, especially as a former player. That led into business, but in terms of getting to know him, I had a blast and we had a lot of laughs and jokes. He’s a swell guy.”
Keith Lee will be in action on this Friday’s episode of AEW Rampage against The Acclaimed’s Max Caster.
