Keith Lee has made his much-anticipated AEW debut on the most recent episode of Dynamite with a dominant win over Isiah Kassidy.
Ever since AEW President Tony Khan announced on February 4th that a new signing would soon be crashing through ‘Forbidden Door’, speculation had been running rampant on who it could be. The answer came on February 10th as Keith Lee was revealed to be All Elite.
The former WWE Superstar received a huge ovation from the AEW faithful as soon as he stepped out of the tunnel. Lee made his intentions known within seconds as he launched Kassidy across the ring. While Kassidy tried his best to fight back using his superior speed, Lee’s incredible power was just too much to overcome.
The ‘Limitless One’ ended the match with a massive powerslam to claim a spot in the upcoming Face of the Revolution Ladder match. After the bout, Lee added to his win by taking out both members of Private Party as they looked for revenge.

Keith Lee was last seen in a wrestling ring when he beat Cedric Alexander on the October 25th 2021 episode of WWE Raw. Despite only recently being given a new gimmick and the name Keith “Bearcat” Lee, he was released from his contract on November 4th.
Lee first signed with WWE back in 2018 and was a regular in NXT until the summer of 2020. During his time on the former black and gold brand, he won both the NXT and North American Championships.
Before Dynamite, Tony Khan had talked up the new signing, saying it would be “huge” for the company, setting up fresh and exciting matches for the future.
