WWE plans for Keith Lee revealed. The former NXT and North American Champion will finally have a direction on Monday Night RAW.
Keith Lee has been regularly featured on WWE TV since his call up. However, he hasn’t had a proper storyline for the fans to get to know him. He had a shortlived feud with Orton before another feud, if you can even call it that, with Braun Strowman that ended with both men suffering hurt crotches.
Lee took part in a triple threat no.1 contender’s match tonight but lost to AJ Styles. With McIntyre looking for a filler feud before Royal Rumble, Lee could not be sacrificed and Styles pinning Riddle to challenge McIntyre for the WWE Championship was understandable. But what does that mean for Lee and his future?
WWE Plans for Keith Lee Revealed
Lee has been around the main event scene since his arrival. However, it seems that he will drop down to the mid-card for a while now according to a report from Last Word on Pro Wrestling. According to the report, WWE sources claim that Vince McMahon thinks Lee will greatly benefit from working with MVP and the Hurt Business,
He will prise the title out of Bobby Lashley in order to gain more experience. With Lee as the U.S Champ, the WWE plan to feature the title as significantly as when John Cena was the United States Champion. He will move back to the main event after building momentum as a baby face.
While these are all rumors at the moment, it is interesting to note that Lee beat Lashley last week to secure his place in the no.1 contender’s match. Riddle, was also attacked by the Hurt Business tonight after pointing Lashley’s loss out.

Lee vs Lashley should be interesting. They are two big men who move like someone much smaller and with MVP around to take care of the talk, this should be an excellent program to help propel Lee back to the World Title picture.
