Keith Lee picked up a big win over Dominik Dijakovic to kick-off NXT this week. The win avenges a loss Lee suffered at the hands of Dijakovic earlier this summer. The heavyweight spoke with WWE correspondents following the match.
“I’ll be honest with you, I can’t tell you about the match importance but what I can tell you is that for awhile now Jordan Myles and I have been talking back and forth and the first thing he said to me was ‘you just got to keep going Keith’ or as he would say ‘you just got to go the distance, put in the miles,’ no pun intended. And so today I proved that and sir, the grind continues.”
As for Lee’s opponent from Wednesday night, Dijakovic was listed as day-to-day in the latest NXT injury report with a cervical strain.
Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic are now 1-1-1 against each other on NXT programming. The two went to a double count-out against each other in February and Dijakovic won an early match they had which was taped in August.
