Report: WWE Keeping Quiet On Keith Lee's Continued Absence
He hasn't been seen on WWE Raw since February
WWE insiders are reportedly keeping silent on why Keith Lee is not being utilised on television.
Lee has not been seen on Raw since defeating Riddle in February. The former NXT Champion was supposed to be involved in a Triple Threat Match for the United States Championship at Elimination Chamber 2021, but was replaced by John Morrison at the last minute and has not been seen since.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider says that people in the know about Lee's situation within WWE are purposefully not revealing any of the details behind his ongoing absence, but suggested what he has been told indicates that the issue pertains to a creative issue rather than any health or wellbeing problems.
Johnson said on PWInsider Elite: "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."
