Apparently, Keith Lee had been ousted from the scene for medical reasons, at first it was thought of as a very probable contagion from covid-19, just like his partner Mia Yim.
Tonight, during the open challenge carried out by Bobby Lashley in view of Summerslam, where the WWE champion wanted to challenge the first athlete who stood in front of him, to appear sensationally by surprise after several months, Keith Lee thought about it, who is however he came out defeated by the contest, taking a sonorous Spear from the champion and thus suffering the decisive pin.
