Keith Lee joined the WWE main roster last year but since then the company has made some changes to his gimmick. Most recently WWE has been referring to him as “Bearcat” Keith Lee, and during a recent appearance on Out of Character with Ryan Satin the former NXT Champion was asked how much of his “true self” he puts into his character.

“It depends on which character you’re talking about. Previously, if you’re referring to anything in NXT or when I first came up to the main roster, I would say there wasn’t really a character. It was just me being me, having fun, enjoying myself. That was just me turned up to a certain level that was above average. Bearcat has some relevance to who I am, but in a more competitive level, almost football related. Just a guy who wants to get business done. Bearcat is a guy who walks out there already ready to decimate whomever is in the ring. It’s a real interesting switch, for sure.”

Lee also went on to say that Vince McMahon has been hands on with his new character, and Lee noted that Vince McMahon being more involved makes it easier to give him what he wants.

“I would say he’s been quite hands on, which is honestly something I need because I want to know what he wants as opposed to making a guess or estimation or hypothesis. If I know what he wants directly, it makes it that much easier to give him what he’s looking for. He’s the man, he runs this, if he wants a specific thing out of his talent, then the talent is to give him what he wants.”
