Keith Lee was pulled from the triple threat United States Title match at Elimination Chamber. He might have even won that match to become the new champion. His participation was cancelled and John Morrison was moved in, allowing Riddle to score a pinfall over Johnny Drip Dip and became the U.S Champion. Bobby Lashley had to drop that title without taking a pinfall.
Lee’s status has been a huge mystery since then. Nobody has come out and disclosed what is going on. Mia Yim spoke up and said that it’s none of our business.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter covered Mia Yim’s reaction to fan speculation about Keith Lee’s status. Then it was stated that the gist of the situation is that Keith Lee is not medically cleared for one reason or another.
The basic gist is that Lee is not medically cleared and he’s made the decision to keep that private at this point.
It is unfair to speculate what is keeping Keith Lee out of action for so long. He has tweeted out and promised to reveal all in time, but that time has not come yet. Fans have also not seen the Limitless Lee make his return to RAW.
In the meantime, Mia Yim was called over to SmackDown. Her debut was planned twice before WrestleMania Backlash, but scrapped both times. We will have to see what WWE decides to do with the former Reckoning as we continue waiting on Keith Lee’s return as well.
Why is Keith Lee’s situation being kept such a secret? Sound off in the comments!
