After being on hiatus from WWE for months, Keith Lee made his return to TV on last week’s episode of Raw where he answered Bobby Lashley’s open challenge to a non-title match.
Lashley went over then started his program with Goldberg. WWE never addressed where Lee had been since February. However, in a post on Twitter today, the former WWE NXT Champion noted that he would share the story behind his hiatus in the near future.
Lee wrote, “I’ve decided. I am just going to tell you guys the story myself. Give me a week or two.”
I've decided. I am just going to tell you guys the story myself. Give me a week or two.

While he was away, it was reported that he was not medically cleared to compete. No other details were known. Back in June, Lee sent out a tweet about how he was going to explain his recent hiatus in an educational and inspiring way. However, something had changed that.
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.
