With the exception of an appearance on the Watch Along for TakeOver: Stand & Deliver Night Two on April 8, former NXT champ Keith Lee has been absent from WWE television since February. Even that appearance was just a blip on the radar, as despite starting the year with a WWE title match and being booked (then removed from) a United States championship match at Elimination Chamber, he’s spent most of 2021 on the sidelines with what’s reportedly a health issue.
WrestleMania 37 and both its fallout shows came and went last week with no sign of the Limitless One. Then today (April 17), he updated his fans with this tweet:
I miss you guys, as well as all the others that expressed this sentiment... whether in dm's, tweets, or comments. I miss you all.— Impatient Lee (@RealKeithLee) April 17, 2021
But do not fret. I will fight like no other to return...and when I do, we got a LOT of ground to cover. #Leegion https://t.co/wqhjwu96tB
Lee hit us with a similar tweet about a month ago. They give the LEEgion hope, if not a lot of information.
Whatever’s going on with Lee and wrestling, life seems to be treating him well. He and Mia Yim got engaged recently, and though neither is being used right now, they looked damn good on the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony...
And seeing as WWE reportedly planned to have him with the U.S. title at February’s PPV, once whatever’s going on is successfully resolved, you think he’ll slot back into their plans fairly quickly.
We’ll keep you posted as Keith keeps the world posted.
