Wes Lee’s Response

In a tweet, Wes Lee addressed Joe Coffey directly:

“AYO @Joe_Coffey attacking me must’ve had a purpose..Just because I’m focused on my North American title doesn’t mean I won’t knock you across your thick skull. @avawwe_ what are the chances you can add him in next week?? I’m sure the others won’t mind..”
