• Vince McMahon Reportedly Thinks Keith Lee ‘Is Not Ready’, PC Classes Not A Demotion
As we noted before, Vince McMahon has decided to get five WWE wrestlers trained under producer Adam Pearce and RAW wrestler Drew Gulak every Tuesday and Thursday at the Performance Center.
These five wrestlers are Keith Lee, Otis, Omos, Dabba-Kato and MACE.
Dave Meltzer discussed this on the Wrestling Observer Radio and said that this move isn’t being seen as a “demotion”, but a way to prepare some of these talents for pushes on the main roster in the future.
Meltzer noted that McMahon is frustrated because “he thinks none of these guys know how to work” and need to improve their in-ring skills.
Regarding Keith Lee, it was noted that in Vince’s mind “he is not ready”.
