Keith Lee breaks his silence regarding his release.
Lee was part of over a dozen releases made by WWE on November 4 and one of the more surprising names on the list given he was recently repackaged as "Bearcat" Keith Lee and was drafted to WWE Raw as part of the 2021 WWE Draft.
Celebrating his birthday on Monday, Lee gave the following statement:
Greetings and salutations. This day is my birthday! It is not a happy birthday, but is is one I am most grateful for. Several months ago, it was not a guarantee I would make it to this day, so there is a positivity in that. I paid all my medical bills from the many offices and machines I frequented. There is positivity in that. And, I do find it amusing that people believe anyone but me paid for my medical expenses.
I was going to wait a couple weeks, but I think it's time to look toward the future, forward march as I like to say. I am capable of so much more and I can't wait to see what it looks like properly. I have a wide array of interests and abilities....I also consider myself to be rather open minded. Here's to a future that, for all intents and purposes....seems Limitless.
Thank you for all the positivity that has been dropped on me the past few days as well as the birthday wishes. I love you. Worry not. We are not done. We work.#BaskInMyGlory #iAmLimitless pic.twitter.com/NkxqL6qkWM— Professional Lee (@RealKeithLee) November 8, 2021
Lee was absent from WWE television throughout the spring and early summer after a health scare following a positive COVID test. In an interview with Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Lee said that he was resigned to the fact that his career was over. You can view his full comments by clicking here.
