WWE Raw star Keith Lee has changed up his look ahead of a possible heel turn when he makes his on-screen return.
Reddit user u/Minnale101 shared an image of Lee from a house show in North Charleston, South Carolina from this past weekend, and as you can see, he’s grown his facial hair back:
Keith Lee hasn’t been on WWE TV since August 2, after only having three matches since his return from health issues that kept him out from February until July.
He has been working dark matches throughout this absence though, as WWE is reportedly trying to work out how best to use him, which seems to be in a new heel role.
It was widely reported that one of WWE’s ideas for Adam Cole before he joined AEW was for him to be Keith Lee’s manager and for them to be a heel duo.
WWE had Lee shave his face when he made his main roster debut, but now he’s grown it back, it certainly seems like it might signify that he’s going to be a heel when we see him again.
At the house show that picture was taken, he beat Akira Tozawa.
