#5. Vince McMahon's plans for Keith Lee following debut on WWE RAW, the reason behind the change in gear


Keith Lee made his official RAW debut, and he was immediately inserted into an angle with the biggest heel on the Red brand in Randy Orton.

The fans, however, were not too pleased about WWE changing Keith Lee's entrance theme and his in-ring gear.

Dave Meltzer revealed on the Wrestling Observer Radio that the idea behind changing Keith Lee's in-ring gear could be to cover up his belly, which is usually Vince McMahon's mindset.

"It did suck yeah. New outfit. Gym shorts and a tight t-shirt. You know Vince's mind. Got to cover up the belly, you know what I mean. That's Vince's mind. I don't think the outfit kills him. I don't think it was a positive either."

A separate report from PWInsider revealed that WWE intends on pushing Keith Lee as a top babyface on RAW. also added that the plan at some point is to turn Lee heel before booking him in a WWE Championship feud with a top babyface.
