• “Between the gear and the music, I just got destroyed” – RAW Wrestler
While speaking to Bleacher Report, Keith Lee commented on the reaction of fans when WWE changed his theme music and ring gear when he joined the main roster, and how everything went down behind the scenes.
Below is what he said:
“Originally, honestly, even I was a little perplexed. You get all the people who came up to RAW who still used their old music. Mind you, none of them did their own music. I’m the only one that did, so it would make more sense for me to be the one to keep using my music.
However, that did not happen, so they asked me to use something else, and I did, and I tried to be as accommodating as possible by putting the front of the song on that track, and it just didn’t vibe [laughs].
It was rough, man! I did the best I could given the circumstances, and I was like, ‘I just have to ride with this until I can figure something out.’ Man, the way that blew up on the internet, it was like, ‘I thought you guys were my friends! I think I’m starting to understand some things here.’ Between the gear and the music, I just got destroyed.
At that point, I didn’t know I’d have to change music, so I had nothing ready. Over time, people backstage said, ‘Hey, y’all have to let Keith do his thing’ and eventually they said, ‘Well, you think you can write something and maybe record it again?’ I said, ‘Yeah, just give me the OK.’
It took a little time, but eventually, I wrote something and got with the music guys, and over a little bit of time, we put something together that I was happy with, even though the one I’m using right now is actually a different version than what I wanted to use. For what it is, I’m very happy to have something I at least wrote and performed.”
