5 Potential Feuds for Keith Lee in AEW

Keith Lee AEW Potential Feuds

Following multiple promising tweets from All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan, the latest free agent headed to AEW was revealed to be Keith Lee. On this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite, Lee officially debuted against Isiah Kassidy for a spot in the Face of the Revolution Match at AEW Revolution. The former NXT and NXT North American Champion got the better of Kassidy using his Big Bang Catastrophe finisher, earning his spot in the ladder match on next month’s pay-per-view.

With “The Limitless One” receiving a great reception from audiences across the globe, Lee certainly has a bright future in AEW, provided he is booked in a sensible manner. Here we take a look at the potential opponents that Lee should engage within a bunch of exciting feuds.

5 Potential Feuds for Keith Lee

LANCE ARCHER

In his recent interview with Busted Open Radio, Lance Archer made his predictions for the new AEW signing. On the same edition of Dynamite, he was slated to challenge “Hangman” Adam Page for the AEW World Championship in a Texas Deathmatch. But that didn’t stop Archer from expressing his interests in Killer Kross and Keith Lee in AEW, and how he would be delighted with either me jumping ship to his promotion.

Lance Archer wanted Lee to be the surprise debut

It seems like “The Murderhawk Monster” just got his wish, and maybe the two stars can share the ring somewhere down the road. Archer – with Jake “The Snake” Roberts by his side, moves like the Blackout and Texas Tornado in his arsenal and a daunting aura around him – can simply prove to be an outstanding heel opponent for a babyface, Keith Lee.

Lee, on the other side, can match up to Archer’s intimidating persona by putting his ultimate side on display. The two wrestlers can execute several heated promos, exchange blows in argumentative segments, and showcase their mighty selves. Overall, these two are a great pair of fighters that should share the ring together someday.

POWERHOUSE HOBBS

Keith Lee going against Powerhouse Hobbs can come up as a feud with multiple dynamics. It can begin with Taz expressing his interest in Lee and his plans of adding him to the faction. The crossroads here would be whether “The Limitless One” pulls a Jon Moxley (Mox’s betrayal over The Inner Circle), or he straight away denies the offer.

There’s also an intriguing possibility of Lee joining hands with Jay Lethal in his campaign against Team Taz. Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks vs Keith Lee and Jay Lethal will certainly make up for an epic tag team encounter.

Powerhouse Hobbs is Team Taz's secret weapon

Either way, the strength and dominance of Powerhouse Hobbs is a sight to see when he crosses paths with Keith Lee. An Irish whip to Lee followed by a Spinebuster courtesy of Hobbs shouldn’t be imaginary anymore. Fans will be treated to a unique blend of styles, culminating in a muscle vs muscle matchup.

MIRO

“The Redeemer” vs “The Limitless One” might just be one of the best matches that AEW has in store for fans. Whether the two former WWE superstars wrestle for a championship or for their glory, this matchup seems to be a great addition to their careers. Given his qualification for the Ladder Match at AEW: Revolution, we might even find Lee obliterating Sammy Guevara, becoming the new TNT Champion.

This will bring upon him the wrath of Miro, who has been vying for the TNT Championship ever since his loss against Guevara. An enraged Miro will leave no stone unturned in his efforts at winning the championship and sporting the title around his waist.

Miro vs Keith Lee will be a muscle vs muscle matchup

Miro brings with him an exceptional talent of intimidating his opponents through constant taunting and bragging. Lee possesses the calm, composed attitude that suits his character. Combined, this would provide for an unmatched rivalry that can continue for a long time.

MJF

The shrewd, deceitful Maxwell Jacob Friedman has proved his worth in AEW as one of the greatest heel wrestlers in the modern era of the business. The world is aware of his reputation as the sly wrestler, who relies more on heelish tactics to win, rather than pure wrestling. His recent win over CM Punk, in what is regarded as the biggest win of his career so far, has pushed him over the moon.

MJF can break the hearts of Keith Lee's fans

But as they say, a better heel wrestler deserves a better face wrestler, and with Keith Lee prepared to take over as AEW’s best babyfaces, there is no more to look for. Lee’s influence over his ever-expanding fan base has made him a favorite for many. As for MJF, it is his forte to cunningly get the better of his rival. He would target the beloved wrestler and would get Lee his first loss in AEW, be it at any cost.

The question is, will “The Limitless One” get his streak broken by Friedman? We better get to watch this feud soon enough to know more.

MALAKAI BLACK

An opportunity that WWE missed to capture is now in the reach of AEW. The dark, ominous demeanor of Malakai Black and the House of Black has added tremendous value to the character. Black and Brody King are currently running a program against the Lucha Bros and Pac.

Malakai Black can consider bringing Lee under his wings

However, the twist can come up with Lee dominating the roster and coming under the radar of Malakai Black. The latter may think about adding Lee to the House of Black as another strong henchman under his command. This can turn into a storyline similar to the Daniel Bryan-Wyatt Family feud in WWE. Keith Lee vs Malakai Black has the potential of being an instant classic and can draw huge numbers on any episode of Dynamite or AEW Rampage.

CONCLUSION

In the end, Tony Khan has once again over-delivered on a surprise debut, as has been done previously with the likes of CM Punk, Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, and several others. Keith Lee is a great talent to have onboard and AEW might just be his new reclamation project. After all, a fresh start is always good for anyone and Lee will definitely benefit from this one.
