Report: WWE Planning To Push Keith Lee "To The Moon"

He defeated Randy Orton at Payback...

At Payback, Keith Lee cemented himself at the top of the card on Monday nights as he defeated 13-time world champion Randy Orton in six minutes. The Limitless One didn't have to rely on any shenanigans and he pinned The Viper clean in the middle of the ring after a Spirit Bomb.

Mike Johnson at PWInsider previously noted the former NXT Double Champion would be receiving a big push on the main roster as one of Raw's top babyfaces. 

After Lee's win at Payback, Alex McCarthy at talkSPORT reported a WWE source reached out to him and revealed Vince McMahon wants to push Lee "to the moon." The boss also thought Orton was the perfect man to put Keith over, particularly as The Apex Predator "wants to help create the next generation of stars." 

McMahon has reportedly been a big fan of The Limitless One for some time and thinks he would work well as both a babyface and a powerhouse heel on the main roster.
