Keith Lee’s 2021 keeps getting stranger.
Lee main evented the very first Raw of 2021 in a WWE championship match. It looked like he would have a good spot on the road to WrestleMania 37. But then he missed multiple episodes of Raw and the Royal Rumble event in January. Lee returned to wrestle one match on Raw in February and was quickly booked in a triple threat match for the United States championship at Elimination Chamber. But he was replaced on the card and missed that event, and has now been off WWE television for more than a month. There has also been a rumor that Vince McMahon still “doesn’t get” Keith Lee.
Nobody seems to know what’s going on with him. Last week on Wrestling Observer Radio, even Dave Meltzer said that there was no update to provide on Lee’s status.
This entire situation was already strange enough. But now things have become even more confusing, thanks to this cryptic tweet from Lee:
I hear many of you. I see many of the messages. One day, I will explain it all for the ones true to me.
For now, know that I more than appreciate the continued support.
And WHEN I return, it will be filled with all the love I have for those that represent this #LEEGION

I have no idea what to make of that, Cagesiders. What do you think is going on with Keith Lee?
