#5 Triple H tipped Keith Lee to succeed

Triple H often gives his out-of-character opinions on some of his WWE NXT Superstars after TakeOver events.

In June 2020, the 14-time WWE World Champion had extremely high praise for Keith Lee following his North American Championship match against Johnny Gargano at TakeOver: In Your House.

"He's just the kind of guy that you wanna work hard for, and you wanna deliver for him. Man, I love working with him. You say, 'Keith Lee, World Champion' – and you ask me what my opinion is? I say, 'Hell yeah!'" [H/T Metro]

It is debatable whether the NXT Championship should be considered a WWE World Championship, but it is surely no coincidence that Lee went on to win the NXT Championship from Adam Cole just one month after Triple H made these comments.

Triple H also referred to Lee as a “moment-making machine” and said he is the “ultimate pro” whenever they work together behind the scenes.

As of the time of writing, Lee has only been involved in two main-roster matches (Survivor Series 2019 and Royal Rumble 2020), but that will surely change in the near future if Triple H’s praise is anything to go by.
