Keith Lee is finally ready to spill the beans on why he missed more than five months of WWE television earlier this year.

The former NXT Champion tweeted the following on Monday, stating that he'll tell his story within a couple of weeks:-

Last week's Raw saw Lee return to the red brand for the first time since February. He was unsuccessful in his first night back, losing a short match to WWE Champion Bobby Lashley in his own home state of Texas, and followed up with another defeat to old NXT rival Karrion Kross last night.

Though Lee began 2021 by wrestling Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship on Raw, his fortunes soon faded. Taken off television in January and pulled from the Royal Rumble, he returned a few weeks later only to vanish again in early February, with WWE nixing plans for him to become United States Champion at Elimination Chamber.


An undisclosed medical issue was reported as the reason behind Lee's absence. While off television, Keith posted several vague updates on the situation, suggesting, at one point, that he would sit down and chat with his fans. Now, that looks like it's about to become a reality.
