Maybe? One of the biggest problems that you see over and over again in WWE is wrestlers not having anything to do. There are a lot of wrestlers who are unable to get in the ring or even on television for whatever reason. One of the bigger issues is having someone where the WWE’s creative department has nothing for them. Now a Monday Night Raw star might be wanting to do something about it.

Monday Night Raw’s Keith Lee has sent out a pair of tweets which may be suggesting that he is returning to NXT. Lee’s first tweet talked about how today could be a day that defines your life so you should always try to make your wheels turn forward. The second tweet showed him at Takeover: WarGames in NXT. There is no word on if Lee will be returning to NXT, though he has not wrestled on Monday Night Raw since January, reportedly due to health issues.

Lee did some great things in NXT. Check out his time in the promotion:

FULL MATCH - Roderick Strong vs. Keith Lee – NXT North American Title Match: WWE NXT, Jan. 22, 2020

Keith Lee's biggest wins: NXT Top 5

FULL MATCH - Lee vs. Gargano - NXT North American Title Match: NXT TakeOver: In Your House

Opinion: This is something that could go a few ways but I’d be down for Lee returning to NXT. If nothing else, it isn’t like he has been gone that long in the first place, so the move would hardly be the most jarring thing in the world. Lee is someone who fits in much better in NXT than he does on the main roster, as NXT is the kind of place where he would be able to showcase his rather unique set of talents that much better.

At the same time, it isn’t like Lee has done anything on Monday Night Raw. Even before his health issues, Lee was hardly ever presented as a major player on the show and was mainly just there most of the time. It might be a bit of a demotion, but it might be a little bit better to be a star on the developmental show than doing nothing on the main roster show. It might not happen, but I certainly could go for the idea.

Do you think Lee will return to NXT? What should he do next? Let us know in the comments below.
