If anyone is wondering where Keith Lee stands in the eyes of Vince McMahon these days, you just need to look at what the original plans were for Raw before it was decided to put him in a handicap match.
As many of you saw, Lee lost to The Miz and John Morrison when they both pinned him at the same time. Many who have defended that booking decision pointed out that it took two men to beat Lee.
PWInsider reports that the original plan was for The Miz to face Lee in a singles match and Miz was supposed to win that match. At some point during the day, the decision was made for Lee to wrestle in the Handicap match.
As noted last week, Vince McMahon named Lee as one of the wrestlers who he felt needed to improve his in-ring work. Whether or not that affects his push remains to be seen but last night’s booking did not seem like a good sign for him.
