According to Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.com, Vince McMahon is said to be high on both Keith Lee and Matt Riddle. Vince apparently sees Lee as someone that could be a powerhouse heel. Lee is also reportedly well-liked in the locker room and with people on WWE’s creative team.
A source told Davis that Vince is high on Matt Riddle despite Riddle being criticized for being too outspoken at times:
“Vince like guys like Shawn who have that rebel mentality and he sees some of Shawn in Matt. Matt can rub some people the wrong way but he’s a good guy and he will do great when Vince calls him up. I think he’s a future world champion. Vince will try to tweak him but his personality will get him far.”
