Keith Lee made his return to WWE TV on tonight’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw.
He was introduced as Keith “Bearcat” Lee, the name he has been using in dark matches in recent weeks. Lee walked out to the ring after Akira Tozawa called out R-Truth, Drew Gulak and Drake Maverick.
Lee debuted new gear and as noted last week, he grew out his facial hair. The match was short and he defeated Tozawa easily after hitting the Big Bang Catastrophy.
There has been talk of Lee turning heel but there was no hint of a heel turn during his Raw return but there was a change in his demeanor because they didn’t have him smile and pander to the fans. Dave Meltzer reported a few weeks ago that there was an idea pitched to have Adam Cole (who is now with AEW) to manage Lee.
