As previously noted, PWInsider reported that Lee has been doing short squash matches before Raw and SmackDown as a way to “refine” him and figure out what works best for him going forward.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer had a small update on Lee. According to Meltzer, the idea behind bringing him to TV every Monday and Friday is that they want to change Lee’s style and to give him a new character and so they want him to practice in front of fans.
