Keith Lee Issues Statement Following His WWE Release

Lee was one of 18 names released on Thursday

Keith Lee has turned his attention to the future following his departure from WWE. 

Lee was one of 18 names released by the promotion in another round of cuts to the roster last Thursday, and the former NXT Champion has now publicly commented on his exit from WWE and his plans going forward.

Putting up a short statement on Monday, his 37th birthday, Lee noted that he wasn't enjoying the happiest of birthdays but it was one that he is extremely grateful for, having missed five months of action due to heart inflammation earlier this year.

Lee also clarified rumours around his medical expenses, saying he paid for those himself, before turning his full attention to what is to come in his future.

Posting his statement on social media, Lee said: "Greetings and salutations. This day is my birthday! It is not a happy birthday, but it is one I am most grateful for.

"Several months ago, it was not a guarantee I would make it to this day, so there is positivity in that. I paid all my medical bills from the many offices and machines I frequented. There is positivity in that. And, I do find it amusing that people believe anyone but me paid for my medical expenses.

"I was going to wait a couple weeks, but I think it's time to look toward the future, forward march as I like to say. I am capable of so much more and I can't wait to see what it looks like properly. I have a wide array of interests and abilities.... I also consider myself to be rather open minded.

"Here's to a future that, for all intents and purposes....seems Limitless."
