Keith Lee reacts to fan saying he is ‘bitter’ about WWE release

Keith Lee found a lot of success in WWE, but also found some disappointing moments. He was pushed as a top star in NXT where he became the North American Champion and NXT Champion.

When he was moved to the main roster, there was a lot of optimism for him and his future. However, after being derailed with a case of COVID-19, which led to heart issues, WWE brought him back to TV only to repackage him with the “Bearcat” gimmick.

Lee was part of the most recent round of talent cuts and is waiting for his 90-day non-compete clause to expire. A fan responded to a recent post by Lee and claimed that he’s bitter about his release.

Lee disagreed with that belief and wrote the following response: “Lol…this makes me laugh. It is quite clear that you are either intentionally ignorant, or just simply an imbecile.I am far from bitter. I am grateful. And nothing in this tweet says anything bitter. It merely says bye to a singlet and looks toward the future. Look inward.”

As noted, Lee will be going back to a familiar look in his post-WWE career when he’s free to work for any promotion he chooses. He’s likely on the radar of several promotions that would be interested in signing him.
