WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre Takes-On Keith Lee In A Non-Title Match
Preview (via WWE) - As WWE Clash of Champions draws near, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is seeking to stay sharp ahead of his battle with Randy Orton. While The Viper’s status is still unknown after McIntyre dropped him with three Claymores last Monday, McIntyre will tune up with what is sure to be a barnburner at In Your Face Monday against his friend and training partner, Keith Lee.
The Limitless One has been on a roll since arriving on the red brand, including a big win over Orton at WWE Payback. Can he pick up the biggest win of his career against the WWE Champion?
