This past week on Monday Night RAW, former NXT Champion Keith Lee gave yet another example of his brute strength. During his tag team match with Sheamus against John Morrison and The Miz, Keith Lee splashed into Morrison in the turnbuckle, leading to it exploding and the top rope coming out along with it.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that the decision was made by WWE as a unique way to send RAW to a commercial break. Recently, fans have witnessed that WWE is using several cliffhanger spots to send RAW and SmackDown to a commercial break. This is a strategy to keep the fans interested and not tune out. As seen on RAW this week, the broken ropes were fixed during the commercial break and the match continued.
