While the first category listed above clearly applies to professional wrestling, the other two suggest Lee has something else in mind as well, perhaps involving educational software development.

Released by WWE on 4 November 2021, Lee remains bound to a standard WWE 90-day non-compete clause preventing him from signing or appearing for other promotions before 2 February 2022. His 'Limitless' gimmick predates his WWE run by several years and, having plied his trade on the indies for 13 years prior to signing with the world's biggest promotion, it looks Lee is going to keep the shtick going.
