Update On Wes Lee's WWE Absence

Wes Lee is still recovering from his long-term injury and back surgery

Back in December 2023, the former NXT North American Champion Wes Lee was forced to stand aside and take at least 8-12 months away from the ring due to suffering from an injury that required back surgery. Lee’s last update in January revealed he was mobile and walking after surgery, and he has now provided fans with some more news of his progress.

In a video on social media, Lee showcased himself spray painting, and noted in the post that he is keeping himself occupied in his time away by expressing his creativity in mediums such as art. 

“Recovery update: I’m making great progress, still uncertain on when everything will be firing on all cylinders with my body, but the mind is strong. Having creative waves and I’m diving back into other outlets to create art. Haven’t done this since ‘08 so bare with the sloppiness..hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!”

NXT’s Shawn Michaels had spoken on Wes Lee’s injury following him pulling out of a scheduled match at NXT Deadline last year, revealing that he knew Lee was struggling with back issues, though the severity was not known at the time.
