Keith Lee was successful before entering the main roster

Keith Lee signed up with WWE back in 2018 and was immediately sent to NXT. He was highly successful on the black and gold brand, winning numerous accolades. In fact, he became the first wrestler to win the NXT Championship and NXT North American Championship simultaneously.

However, he went on to Raw following his Title loss at TakeOver: XXX. Lee faced Randy Orton for his first match, but Drew McIntyre interrupted it. Eventually, he was involved in a series of matches with Orton and McIntyre.

Then, Lee was all set to face Riddle and Bobby Lashley for the United States championship, but he withdrew due to an injury. Since then, Lee has not appeared on WWE TV.
