“Makes Raw worth watching again”, “Big boy that Raw needs” – Twitter explodes as former NXT Champion is set to make Raw debut


Keith Lee lost to Karrion Kross at TakeOver but is set to debut on Raw

WWE SummerSlam saw one huge return for Roman Reigns but another big event is set for Raw.

Keith Lee will make his Raw debut on Monday and this is going to be something special. The Limitless one seems to be the latest NXT star to be drafted to the Red brand, and this is exciting news for him.

Lee became the first NXT star to hold the North American and NXT titles after he beat Adam Cole at the Great American Bash.

He gave up the North American crown to concentrate on his NXT title, but things didn’t go his way at TakeOver.

Lee defended the title against Karrion Kross but ended up on the losing side. However, that is a minor price to pay since he is going to make his Raw debut.

A deserving move for Lee

The Limitless One has been on an incredible rise since making his NXT debut. Lee has a brilliant move set for a man of his size, and his growth will continue as he moves to Raw.

There could have been a rematch for Lee or the possibility of him reclaiming the title as Kross picked up a major injury.

However, this is bigger for him and there could be fireworks from Lee on the first day itself. There are many feuds he could be included and WWE has to be careful of not bringing down his star quotient.

Aleister Black also made a huge name on NXT before coming to Raw and he seems to be undergoing a character change.

WWE has a history of messing up NXT stars, however, many from the Universe were happy to see Lee get the call-up.
