Keith Lee has returned to Monday Night RAW answering an open challenge from WWE Champion Bobby Lashley.
After defeating Kofi Kingston at Money In The Bank, Lashley arrived on RAW in buoyant and determined mood with MVP in tow. Lashley grabbed the microphone declaring that he was now doing his talking in the ring, highlighting his decimation of Kingston the previous night.
MVP then picked up where Lashley left off reiterating that Lashley is more determined than ever now that he has “cut the bullsh*t.”
The pair laid down an open challenge to anyone in the back to come to the ring and go one on one with The Almighty. Step forward Keith Lee in his home state of Texas.
Despite a highly competitive showing Lee was eventually defeated by Lashley, with the former NXT Champion more than holding his own.

Keith Lee hadn’t appeared on Monday Night RAW since beating Riddle on February 8th.
His absence had been the cause of much consternation among fans as there has been little comment from either side about the Superstar’s disappearance from TV.
Lee had been scheduled to appear at WWE Elimination Chamber but was reportedly pulled from the show for undisclosed health issues. Lee was replaced in the match by John Morrison who was pinned by Riddle as he won the United States Championship from Bobby Lashley.
