It was then that Keith Lee’s music began playing, and the big man made his way to the ring. Fearlessly, he stepped into the ring without batting an eyelid. 

Orton was surprised that someone had the audacity of disrupting his moment. However, “The Legend Killer” played along by asking Lee what he was doing.

Lee soon made his intentions clear. The former NXT Champion immediately got down to business and challenged Orton to a fight!

Keith Lee had a great duel with Randy Orton

Just days after losing his NXT Championship to Karrion Kross, Keith Lee made his main roster debut. Fans were the main advocates of this major promotion.

The understood rule in WWE is if you want everyone to see you, you take out the best guy in the business. That’s exactly what Keith Lee had in mind when he challenged Randy Orton.

The match didn’t quite go Lee’s way. He had his moments, but the ending saw him at Orton’s mercy. “The Viper” was about to finish him off with an RKO when Drew McIntyre interfered.

McIntyre took his revenge on Orton for the punt kick earlier in the night and pounded down on his foe. Orton had to make a quick escape through the stands to get away from the wrath of McIntyre. Keith Lee will have to wait a while longer to cast his sword.
