Keith Lee recently posted on his social media that he is looking for a way to explain his absence from WWE.
Since February, the former NXT and North American Champion has been missing from Monday Night RAW. His absence has left the WWE Universe questioning the reason as to why. Lee has remained active on social media, updating fans along the way without revealing the reason for his near four-month sabbatical. Lee took to Twitter to inform the wrestling world that he has wanted to disclose his story since January in an interesting manner but will have to “find another way”.
“I wanted to do something educational, but also inspiring to tell you guys about everything since late January. Seems that is off the table for now. So….with that, I will find another way to tell guys about everything. It might simply a video of me chatting with you. We’ll see.”

Lee joined WWE’s flagship show last summer. He made an immediate impact when he got in the face of Randy Orton. He then found himself pinning the “Viper” at Payback before getting involved in the WWE Championship scene.
Since then, Lee became a regular part of the show and was on Team RAW for the Survivor Series showdown against Team SmackDown. He was once again inserted into the WWE Championship chase with a Number One Contender match against Sheamus before he was reportedly on the verge of winning the United States Championship from Bobby Lashley at Elimination Chamber. However, his match against Riddle on the 8th February edition of RAW was to be his last, and he is yet to return to WWE television.
The rumour mill has swirled with different reasons for Keith Lee’s disappearance. But until the “Limitless One” find a way of telling us, we will have to wait.
