WWE is working on repackaging Keith Lee with a new character, possible heel turn

It looks like there are plans being worked on for when Keith Lee returns to WWE TV.

The former NXT Champion has been working on dark matches in recent weeks. As previously noted, PWInsider reported that Lee has been doing short squash matches before Raw and SmackDown as a way to “refine” him and figure out what works best for him going forward.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer had a small update on Lee. According to Meltzer, the idea behind bringing him to TV every Monday and Friday is that they want to change Lee’s style and to give him a new character and so they want him to practice in front of fans.

Lee has been getting babyface reactions during the dark matches but was told that Vince McMahon has considered turning him into a monster heel.

Lee returned a few weeks ago after being sidelined for months with health issues. After testing positive for COVID-19 in February, he battled issues with his heart.
