• Keith Lee Issues Statement On His Absence From WWE

RAW Superstar Keith Lee tested positive for COVID-19 in January and this led to him missing the Royal Rumble.

Lee then returned to WWE TV in February after testing negative. Lee went on to defeat Riddle and then got attacked by Bobby Lashley after the match. This set up a Triple Threat match for the United States Championship between Lashley, Lee and Riddle at Elimination Chamber.

According to the Dirty Sheets patreon page, Lee faced significant breathing issues after his match with Riddle on RAW and was given oxygen backstage. Lee’s oxygen saturation was reportedly below 90% (95% or over is considered normal).

WWE officials told Lee to take some time off and not return until he’s fully recovered. There were hopes that he would be ready to go by Elimination Chamber, but that didn’t happen and Lee was replaced by John Morrison in the Triple Threat US Title match.

Lee has now issued the following statement on Twitter:

“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 miss you guys too. Just know that.”
