As previously noted, Keith Lee recently talked about the struggle of getting back into ring shape after dealing with heart inflammation that kept him out of action for several months.
In recent weeks, Lee has been working dark matches prior to WWE RAW and Smackdown. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that Lee is doing these matches because the company is “trying to change his style and give him a new character and have him practice in front of fans.”
Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co noted the following regarding Lee’s direction…
“Lee has been getting babyface reactions during the dark matches but WrestlingNews.co was told that Vince McMahon has considered turning him into a monster heel.”
