Keith Lee returns to WWE, defeated by Bobby Lashley on Raw

For the first time since February, Keith Lee appeared on WWE television and he challenged WWE Champion Bobby Lashley

Texas’ own Keith Lee made his return to WWE programming.

Coming off of his successful WWE Title defense against Kofi Kingston at Money In The Bank, Bobby Lashley hosted an open challenge on Raw and answering the call was the returning Keith Lee. Lee was defeated by Lashley in his return.

Keith Lee has not been on WWE television since February of this year when he wrestled Riddle on Raw. Lee was announced for a three-way at Elimination Chamber with Riddle and then-United States Champion Bobby Lashley but he was pulled from the bout.

In the months following Lee’s last TV appearance, he provided a series of updates on social media in regards to how he was doing. Mia Yim appeared on D-Von Dudley’s Table Talk podcast and stated that Lee was doing fine and she was going to let him explain why he had been absent.

Lee was moved to the Raw brand in August of 2020 and he scored a win over Randy Orton in his first pay-per-view post-NXT call-up.
