• Reason Behind Keith Lee’s Absence From WWE

Fans have been wondering why RAW Superstar Keith Lee hasn’t returned to WWE television yet, after being pulled from the United States Championship match at the Elimination Chamber 2021 PPV.

His real-life girlfriend and WWE Superstar Mia Yim recently told fans that the reason for Lee’s absence is none of anyone’s business.

The Wrestling Observer reported the following:

“The basic gist is that Lee is not medically cleared and he’s made the decision to keep that private at this point.”

While the Wrestling Observer didn’t reveal the exact reason for Lee’s absence, we reported it over two months ago.

You can read our report from March below:

“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.”

• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School ECW Veteran “The King of Old School” Steve Corino celebrates his 48th birthday today.

Steve wrestled for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling from 1998 till January 2001, including a 2 month run as the ECW World Heavyweight Champion.

Corino was already signed to a World Championship Wrestling contract right after leaving ECW, but never got to make an appearance, before Vince McMahon bought the company in March and released him from the contract.

He then appeared for several minor promotions, such as Ring of Honor, Extreme Rising, NWA Florida, World Wrestling Council, Zero1 and Major League Wrestling.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE CORINO!
