Prior to Monday night’s WWE RAW TV tapings, Keith Lee worked yet another dark match and it appears he has a new nickname. During his entrance, Lee come out and was referred to by the ring announcer as Keith “Bearcat” Lee.
For what it’s worth, the new nickname may be in reference to WWE Hall of Famer (legacy wing) Bearcat Wright. Wright was a Black man who became popular in the 1950s and 1960s. Of course, there were was a lot of racial tension going on during that time period. Wright was briefly suspended by the Indiana State Athletic Commission after announcing that he would not support segregated wrestling.
