Originally published at WWE issues response to claims by Keith Lee over medical bills
WWE has issued a response to claims made by Keith Lee stating he had paid for all of his medical bills earlier in the year.
WWE’s statement on the matter:
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.
This is in response to Lee’s statement that he issued earlier this week, his first since being released by WWE last week:
Greetings and salutations. This day is my birthday! It is not a happy birthday but it 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 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.
Lee had major health issues earlier this year and revealed in August that after battling COVID-19, he had inflammation in his heart that led to an extended absence from WWE programming.
Lee was part of the latest round of WWE cuts that saw 18 performers released by the company.
