Keith Lee was supposed to compete in a triple threat match for the United States Title, but he was pulled from that Fastlane match. They still needed a triple threat match situation so John Morrison replaced him. Lee hasn’t been seen since.
Lee said that he promises to tell his story in time. This situation is shrouded in mystery as people close to him aren’t talking. He isn’t injured, but Keith Lee isn’t on RAW.
Mike Johnson shared some thoughts about Keith Lee during PW Insider Elite Audio. He also stated that it is possible, by the way things have been getting back to him, that Lee could have “fell foul of Vince McMahon.” Something is going on, and nobody’s talking.
“I have never been able to get a full answer on what happened to him. I have been led to believe it’s more of a creative thing than an injury thing, and they just for whatever reason, I don’t know why, I don’t know what the full story is. Whether he just fell foul of Vince McMahon somehow, or there is something going on that they’re keeping close to the vest, which is always possible. I can get a clear read on it, and whoever is close to him, who knows the deal, they’re not talking.”
Keith Lee could surprise us all with a Limitless return right to the top of the card. He has charisma and incredible ability, but something apparently didn’t click with Vince McMahon.
Lee was also a part of the “big man” class that McMahon sent to the Performance Center for additional training. The book is not closed for Keith Lee, but this is a very long pause between chapters.
