Former NXT Champion Keith Lee Answers WWE Championship Open Challenge On Raw

WWE Title Belt

On a night of big surprises on WWE Raw from the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas, one of the more well received was the return of Keith Lee to answer Bobby Lashley’s open challenge.

After defeating Kofi Kingston the night before in dominant fashion at Money In The Bank, WWE Champion Lashley issued an open challenge for his title. That challenge was answered by the former NXT and North American Champion Lee, making his first appearance on screen since January.

The match was won by Lashley with a clean win that set up another major return post-match.

Fans had long speculated when they might see Lee again after a series of cryptic social media posts hinted all was not well. However, Lee presumably now returns as a full time member of the Raw roster almost a year to the date since his debut on the brand in 2020.
