Keith Lee & Dominik Dijakovic Segment
That introduction sounds beautiful, like a choir. Lee asks Alicia Taylor to introduce him one more time. Keith is at a crossroads because the last few months have been difficult and trying. We have all had our struggles, hard times, sadness and suffering. Lee knows that more than anyone. There’s something so incredibly special that can occur when we are in this ring. Lee can feel it through not just the people, but he feels it with these championships. Keith Lee stands here before you, not only as your North American Champion, but also as your NXT Champion. He wants to highlight the fact that he is not in disbelief. He celebrated and he is back to reality. There are some friends in the locker room and there are some enemies. They want the same chance that he earned, but there also is an understanding. This was not done on his own accord. Opportunity created this. Chances created this.
Lee is not a self made man. Killer Tim Brooks was more than just a trainer to him, he was a like a father and he was there when no one else was there and when no one else believed in him. Brooks welcomed him with the most open arms. He made sure to tell the people that Keith Lee was Limitless and you sang to the world to bask in his glory, and now the world does. There is one person who has played a pivotal part in all of this. He saw him backstage and he knows you are thinking about what you are going to do with the rest of your career.
Lee is not just celebrating for Tim Brooks and the NXT and WWE Universe. Lee would like for his number one frenemy to make his way to the ring, Dominik Dijakovic. No one more is proud of Keith than Dijakovic. This is Keith’s moment. Lee disagrees because this is about them. Dominik might not realize this but the competition between them is what propelled him to opportunities. Dijakovic was the one individual who has tested his limits like no one else. The best way to represent these championships is with competition. Lee talked to Mr. Regal and he suggested that the first challenger for these championships should be Dominik Dijakovic. There is no way to honor competition without the best competition. Let’s do it tonight.
