Lee broke his silence and sent a message to his fans, letting them know that whenever he returns, it will be huge. However, right now, he appreciates the concern, love, and messages his fans have been sending from across the globe.

The last time he was in the ring was before Elimination Chamber 2021. He was supposed to be in a triple threat match with Matt Riddle and Bobby Lashley for the Intercontinental Championship, but John Morrison replaced him after Lee pulled out because of injuries.

Ever since then, ‘The Limitless One’ has not graced the WWE ring with his presence. He might look to make a comeback at a future PPV. Considering he sent the message just before Fastlane, it’s possible he will return at the pay-per-view to challenge Matt Riddle for the Intercontinental Championship, which he missed out on because of injuries.

Keith Lee did not impress Vince McMahon

Previously, reports had emerged that Vince McMahon wasn’t impressed with Lee’s performance in the ring and wanted to send him back to the Performance Center to improve his skills. A significant portion of his fans found it odd that McMahon sent Lee to the Performance Center after bringing him to Raw.

The fact that he missed several Raw episodes hints towards the fact that McMahon may have gone ahead with the idea. In fact, there have been no further updates about Lee’s injuries either. It’s not possible to know exactly what’s going on with Keith Lee until WWE or he issues a statement with clarification.

The Limitless One’s Raw debut

Keith Lee made his Raw debut during August 2020, and WWE immediately put him in a storyline with Randy Orton. Not only did the company book him in a rivalry with one of the top stars working under the red brand, Lee defeated Orton too.

Following this, Lee had his fair share of opponents inside the ring. One of his last matches was against John Morrison and The Miz where he partnered with Sheamus.

This match had a moment that became evidence of Lee’s immense strength. He splashed Morrison into the turnbuckle, which exploded because of the impact and the ropes came out.

If Lee doesn’t return by the upcoming Monday Night Raw, it will become difficult to put him in a rivalry with anybody before WrestleMania.

Do you think Keith Lee should return soon to make sure he takes part at WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
