Keith Lee Reportedly Had "Attitude Issues" In WWE
Claims from WWE sources
After three years with the company, Keith Lee was released by WWE on Thursday, November 4, along with the likes of Karrion Kross, Eva Marie, Jeet Rama, Nia Jax and Lince Dorado.
Providing more details on the former NXT Champion's release on a PWTorch VIP audio show, Wade Keller reported that people within WWE had grown frustrated with Lee and The Limitless One had "attitude issues" backstage.
"Keith Lee, who I have chronicled for months and months and months and months and months, was somebody that even people that were rooting for him behind the scenes, became frustrated with him. He just had, in general, attitude issues or, as one wrestler told me tonight, perceived attitude issues. Hedging a little bit, others have said outright attitude problems and he just was frustrated. I've heard different things about him in terms of his mood being altered way more than it should in the modern era about being asked to do a job," Keller said.
Lee had spent much of 2021 on the shelf due to a life-threatening heart inflammation. He returned in July and was repackaged as Keith "Bearcat" Lee before his release.
