• Reason Behind The Random Segment Between JBL & Keith Lee At WWE Payback 2020

Before his match at WWE Payback 2020 with Randy Orton, Keith Lee encountered WWE Hall Of Fame 2020 inductee, JBL, backstage, who gave him his card and told him not to feel bad if he lost to Orton.

The Wrestling Observer noted that this was just done to make fans feel like Lee was going to lose to Orton.

“The point of it was to get, just to basically tell you that Keith Lee’s got no chance to win. So when he wins, it makes it bigger because Randy Orton is one of the all-time greats, and as far as the money goes, it’s to tell you that Keith Lee is not rich. We don’t want a rich babyface!”

Lee proved JBL wrong and defeated The Legend Killer clean.
