Published 12/12/2020, 12:44 AM EST


Vince McMahon recently threw a fit about the inferior wrestling skills of some of the male members of the roster. While we didn’t know the identity of these Superstars earlier, a recent report by PWInsider has seemingly confirmed the same.

As per the report, the Superstars in question are Keith Lee, Otis, Dabba Kato, Mace from Retribution and AJ Styles’ bodyguard, Omos.

While Vince McMahon was not satisfied with the working abilities of some of the main roster talents, the brunt of his ire was borne by the so-called “big guys”.

Vince has been known to be a fan of the bigger and muscular Superstars. However, he is unsatisfied with the work rate of the current crop of monsters on his roster.

Vince McMahon sends low-performing wrestlers for weekly classes

Surprisingly, Vince has organized two classes per week for these allegedly “poor” workers. These classes will be held in the WWE Performance Center and will be conducted by technical wizard Drew Gulak and WWE Producer Adam Pearce (former NWA Champion).

Considering the infrastructure being put in place to alleviate these concerns, we can assume that Vince is really serious about this issue.

Keith Lee’s inclusion raises eyebrows

Keith Lee is universally acknowledged as a phenomenal in-ring worker. There’s a reason why fans call him the “limitless.”

While he might not fit in with how Vince traditionally perceives big men, Lee has the ability to play any kind of role the boss wants him to.

He moves exceptionally for a man of his size and can use his monstrous stature to dominate anyone on the roster. This deadly combination makes him one of the most formidable Superstars in all of WWE.

In addition, his body of work in NXT and in the independent circuit speaks for itself. Keith Lee participated in some of the best matches in NXT history and is a legend in the indies.

However, one can understand Vince’s frustration with the rest of the Superstars in the list. Many fans didn’t see Otis as a future world champion because he has a very limited skill-set in the ring. Even though he can execute some jaw-dropping feats for a man of his size, his ability to build a match and tell a story in the ring is still under the scanner.

Dabba Kato and Omos bring little to the table apart from their humongous size. We can only hope that this additional training helps in substantially upgrading their in-ring skills.
