According to a report from PW Insider, Keith Lee will not be participating in tonight’s (Sun., Feb. 21, 2021) Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV) at the ThunderDome at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. As of this writing, WWE still has him listed for the triple threat United States championship match against Bobby Lashley and Riddle.
WWE did mention something about an injury on Monday Night Raw this past week and that being why we haven’t seen Lee on television recently. There were hints he may not end up able to go for this match.
Per Insider, that talk may indeed be based in reality, and the belief is Lee is dealing with some kind of injury right now.
Again, WWE has yet to officially pull Lee from the show, which is just hours away from going on the air. There are only five matches official and one of those, Lacey Evans vs. Asuka, is no longer being advertised.
Stay tuned for any updates.
UPDATE: WWE has confirmed he is out of the match. Click here to see how they’ll figure out his replacement.
