• Reason Behind Keith Lee Working Dark Matches As Of Late
Keith Lee made his return to WWE programming about a month ago, on the post-Money In The Bank episode of RAW.
Since then, he has worked 3 televised matches. He first lost to WWE Champion Bobby Lashley, and then to NXT Champion Karrion Kross. He then went on to pick up a win over Kross.
This month, Lee started working dark matches before RAW and SmackDown, where he mostly worked with local talent.
According to PWInsider, WWE is trying to figure out what works for Lee and are designing these dark matches to be squash matches to refine Lee for the main roster.
Lee hasn’t been a part of a proper storyline since his return.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (August 18, 1997) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 1997, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Final Solution” Jeep Swenson (Real name: Robert Swenson Jr.) at the age of 40 due to a heart failure.
After making a name for himself in Fritz Von Erich’s WCCW World Class Championship Wrestling territory as “The Mercenary” Jeep Swenson, and a stint in the later GWF Global Wrestling Federation, he was brought into Ted Turner’s WCW World Championship Wrestling in 1996 as “The Final Solution” to join “The Alliance to End Hulkamania”, consisting of The Four Horsemen, The Dungeon of Doom & Z-Gangsta (fka Zeus).
After Jewish organisations grouched about Jeep’s new name, WCW President Eric Bischoff decided to slightly change it to “The Ultimate Solution”.
Jeep Swenson also had roles in quite a few Hollywood movies, for example playing “Lugwrench” Perkins in ‘No Holds Barred’ and playing Bane in the famous 1997 movie ‘Batman & Robin’.
