However, the bigger picture here isn’t Keith Lee losing on his return, but the fact that he returned! After all, WWE took Lee off television for no concrete reason before Elimination Chamber earlier this year.

Either way, Keith Lee returned and the WWE Universe at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, went absolutely crazy. Although he didn’t cut a promo to address the crowd, he made sure to address them via social media.

Keith Lee asks fans to continue supporting him following his return on WWE Raw

The ‘Limitless‘ one took to Twitter following Monday Night Raw to send a message to the WWE Universe. He thanked everyone in Dallas and revealed he had instant goosebumps upon return.

Keith Lee also added that if the WWE Universe keeps up the loud cheer for him, then others won’t have any other choice than to listen. This statement is probably directed at WWE Management. Basically, Lee wants fans to make WWE know that they’re all behind him and he is far from finished.

The 36-year-old was all set to be in the United States Championship picture heading into the Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania season. However, none of it happened as he was taken off TV due to an undisclosed injury.

With no clear statement on Keith Lee’s injury or absence, fans believed if something had gone down between him and WWE. Every time WWE releases superstars this year, every fan feared only one thing – Keith Lee shouldn’t be the one to face the axe.

Luckily, WWE did not release Lee and we finally saw him make a return last night on Raw. Although it’s important to note that there is still no clarity over why the ‘Limitless’ one stayed away from the ring for so long. We hope he reveals it on a podcast or Twitter someday.
