Last week WWE released another round of Superstars, and former NXT Champion Keith Lee happened to be one of the names who got released. Earlier this year Keith Lee spent a number of months on the sidelines due to health issues, and he recently issued the following statement claiming that he was the only one who paid his medical bills:
“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.”
WWE has since responded to Keith Lee, and the company called his claim “erroneous” when they issued the following statement:
Keith Lee’s recent comments implying WWE failed to pay his medical bills are erroneous. WWE has an extensive healthcare program for the medical care of its in-ring performers and Mr. Lee was part of this program while with the company. Should Mr. Lee have any concerns over the payment of medical bills, he is welcome to address them with WWE.”
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
