9. Keith Lee
Keith Lee was dealt a bad hand when he debuted on Raw in August. Fresh off of NXT run that had seen him go toe-to-toe with Roman Reigns at Survivor Series and Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble, he appeared with new baggy ring gear (Vince McMahon having supposedly thought that a man of Lee’s size should not wear just shorts) and a new entrance track that wouldn’t have sounded out of place as the generic music assigned to a create-a-wrestler in one of the WWE's video games.
Though it retained the ‘Bask In His Glory. For He Is Limitless’ intro of his NXT theme, Lee’s new music did nothing to sell his character or endear him to any fans unfamiliar with his work on the black and gold brand. He has quickly become part of the scenery on Raw and though you’d hope that he’ll still have plenty of opportunities to live up to his credentials, you can’t imagine many fans going wild for such a dull piece of music once they’re allowed to return.
For whatever reason, WWE cut ties with CFO$, the production duo that put together the majority of entrance themes for new performers since 2012, earlier this year. Their seeming commitment to pay as few royalties as possible to them going forwards paints an ominous picture for other talents besides Lee going forwards.
