Keith Lee worked on WWE shows last weekend where he wrestled Akira Tozawa. Fans have noticed that Lee has changed his look, which he did when he was on top of NXT as he wears a beard again.
When Lee debuted on the main roster, he had changed his look by shaving in addition to wearing an undershirt.

The former NXT champion has been working on dark matches for several weeks. Lee had quit television for several months due to health issues. After testing positive for COVID-19 in February, he battled heart problems.
When Lee first returned, he was booked as a babyface and worked for Bobby Lashley and Karrion Kross. While working dark matches, Lee was portrayed as a heel.
It has been reported that WWE wants to change Lee’s style and give him a new character. By working in dark matches, it’s a way for him to train in front of fans. It’s still unclear when Lee will return to television.
