Keith Lee coming to WWE Raw, set for post-SummerSlam episode
After losing the NXT Championship at TakeOver XXX, a call-up to the main roster is what’s next for Keith Lee.
WWE announced tonight that Lee will appear on Monday’s post-SummerSlam episode of Raw. The announcement was made via a hype video that aired during SummerSlam.
After the video aired, Triple H posted a tweet congratulating Lee: “Let the #Limitless era of #WWERaw begin… Congratulations @RealKeithLee! #WeAreNXT”
Lee lost the NXT Championship to Karrion Kross in the main event of TakeOver XXX on Saturday night. Lee had been NXT Champion since defeating Adam Cole in a winner-take-all title vs. title match at Great American Bash night two last month. After winning that match, Lee vacated the NXT North American Championship.
Kross suffered a separated shoulder during his match against Lee at TakeOver and will be getting an MRI on Monday.
At last year’s Survivor Series pay-per-view, Lee was part of Team NXT in the Raw vs. SmackDown vs. NXT men’s elimination match. He made it to the end of that match before being defeated by Roman Reigns. Lee was also an entrant in this year’s Royal Rumble and went face-to-face with Brock Lesnar before being eliminated by him.
