Keith Lee made his return to take on Bobby Lashley in an open challenge to take on Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title. He lost that match. Then he showed up to face Karrion Kross, and he lost again. This is all apparently part of WWE’s plan for him.
Karrion Kross’ storyline with Jeff Hardy was messed up after The Charismatic Enigma tested positive for COVID-19. We’re wishing him the best, but he was not around to beat Kross for a second time, as was the plan. You can click here to read about how WWE planned to eventually get Scarlett involved.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter wrote up that story about Kross, and they included a very interesting note. Keith Lee was inserted into the match against the NXT Champion, because it played into his own angle.
They also wanted Lee to lose based on his own future storyline
We will have to see what kind of storyline Vince McMahon has for Keith Lee. They did book a return match for the two, one Keith Lee actually won. Only time will tell if it entails him losing down the line.
Many fans are not thrilled about how WWE booked Keith Lee since his call-up from the main roster. Obviously, Keith Lee missing seven months off television didn’t help the situation either. We’ll keep watching Keith Lee and hoping for the best as he continues his path in WWE.
