Keith Lee dedicates AEW Tag title win to long-time friend battling cancer

In the days leading up to the biggest match of his AEW career, Keith Lee shared there were some people close to him dealing with some challenges.

After Lee & his partner Swerve Strickland won the company’s Tag Team championship in a threeway match against The Young Bucks and Powerhouse Hobbs & Ricky Starks, the Limitless One briefly spoke to the Savannah, Georgia crowd about what’s been going on, and specifically dedicating the victory to an old friend from Texas who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

AEW released a video of Keith’s promo:

“This is more than just a victory for me, this is more than just a victory for our story. This sir, is a victory for you, and a statement of my god-damn love! I will always be there. Always. And when I get back to Texas, I swear to God I’m gonna get in my car, drive my ass to Austin, Texas, and I will see you as soon as I can my friend. Stay strong, fight like we’ve done, fight harder than we have, fight harder than I did to live — and I’ll be there soon my friend.”
