Keith Lee given a new nickname during a dark match on Raw

Keith Lee was given a new nickname prior during his dark match before Monday Night Raw.

Lee was announced as Keith “Bearcat” Lee, as he made his way to the ring. It is not known who his opponent was. 

It is believed that Lee’s new nickname may be homage to Bearcat Wright, who was a professional wrestler in the 1960s. Wright is also a former WWA World Heavyweight Champion. 

Lee has been working dark matches prior to the start of Raw and Friday Night SmackDown since early August. 

Lee returned to WWE in July after being gone for several months.  His last televised appearance was on the August 2 episode of Raw where he defeated Karrion Kross.
