A pretty major match has been announced for tonight’s episode of WWE Raw with big WWE title implications. The company announced today that Keith Lee would be taking on Sheamus for a shot at the WWE Championship.
Sheamus has been in a storyline with Drew McIntyre in recent months with the two reigniting an old friendship. Meanwhile, Keith Lee has been closely linked with the main event scene since debuting back in August. Feasibly, either man could win this match. Here is the official preview from WWE.com:
“Keith Lee and Sheamus will square off tonight on Raw with a WWE Title opportunity on the line.
Both Superstars were in Drew McIntyre’s corner last week for a Holiday Street Fight win against AJ Styles, The Miz & John Morrison. The two titans could only coexist for so long, as The Celtic Warrior crushed Lee with a Brogue Kick following earlier miscommunications in the match. Now the two heavyweights will settle their differences in a high-stakes showdown.
Who will head into the new year with a WWE Title opportunity in tow?”
The preview for WWE Raw does not state where the championship match will take place. However, the next pay per view is the Royal Rumble, currently scheduled for the end of January.
