At the end of last week, several reports came out about how Vince McMahon told a group of big men - including former NXT & North American champion Keith Lee - to get more training in with Drew Gulak & Adam Pearce at the Performance Center.
The big missing piece of the puzzle was why exactly Lee was a part of the group which included Otis, Dio Maddin, Omos and Dabba Kato.
Many assumed the worst: “How can you not get Keith Lee? Vince is about to ruin another talented wrestler!” Some preached patience: “Training isn’t a bad thing - maybe this is because McMahon has big plans for him.”
It’s not the final one, but a report this afternoon from Fightful Select gives us another piece of the puzzle. The site says we’ll see a continued push for Lee on Raw tonight (Dec. 14). Unfortunately, they also “weren’t given any more details” about what this push entails or even what the Limitless One will be doing on this week’s show.
Last Monday Lee confronted Sheamus backstage about the Celtic Warrior’s relationship with WWE champion Drew McIntyre, and that was it. Sheamus is scheduled to face AJ Styles on this week’s show.
Hey, a mysterious push is better than no push at all, right?
We’ll see. Join us in our Raw live blog tonight to see if we get another piece of the puzzle.
