Keith Lee is not being released by WWE, Sean Ross Sapp is reporting on FightfulSelect.com, contrary to some social media speculation. His sources ‘debunked’ the false rumor.
Keith Lee sent out another cryptic tweet today, though he did not indicate he was leaving WWE.
Lee is seen by many as a potential future face of WWE. Jim Ross recently discussed discovering the last face of WWE, John Cena, in a Sportskeeda interview.
“John was up in Southern California, working part-time in several jobs; moving company, truck driver, just a litany of things, while he was training with Rick Bassman in UPW in Southern California,” Ross said. “I was up there and actually scouting somebody else, I can’t remember who it was now. John looked like Sting, long-flat top haircut, so we had our little sit down.
“We have our sit down and get to know each other and I found out he’s a former All-American center. I found out his strength coach has now become the coach at Oklahoma University, I find out he knew as much wrestling trivia as anybody that I had been around, so a true student of the game.”
