The last time Keith Lee wrestled was on the February 8, 2021 edition of Monday Night Raw, defeating Riddle. He was scheduled to compete at the Elimination Chamber on February 21, but was pulled the day of for what were termed to be injury reasons.
Lee recently responded to a fan on Twitter who said they missed Lee, to which the former NXT champion said, "I miss you guys, as well as all the others that expressed this sentiment... whether in dm's, tweets, or comments.
"I miss you all. But do not fret. I will fight like no other to return...and when I do, we got a LOT of ground to cover."
A recent report from Fightful Select noted, "While it is true that Keith Lee isn't currently factored in to WWE creative plans at the moment, this isn't a case similar to Andrade or Aleister Black where he's simply not used. Lee was sidelined for health reasons in February, and WWE have not cleared him for a return as of yet. Lee underwent some testing following being sidelined, and WWE sources have indicated that he is actively trying to get cleared."
