Rumor Roundup (Feb. 17, 2021): Keith Lee, Elimination Chamber card, MVP injury, more!

Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that — rumors. None of this has been confirmed as fact, it’s just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. We track rumor accuracy in a weekly feature called Rumor Look Back you can find here. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that there’s something going on with Keith Lee and he may get removed from the U.S. title match at Elimination Chamber.
  • For that matter, Meltzer says none of the matches under the top three are certain at this point.
  • PW Insider notes that MVP legitimately suffered a leg injury on Raw this week and he’s already traveled to Alabama to get looked at.
  • Wrestling Inc says WWE learned of Lacey Evans’ pregnancy during the day and rewrote Raw for later in the evening.
  • According to talkSPORT, Millie McKenzie has signed with WWE to be a part of the NXT UK brand.
