Tony Khan recently landed in some hot water within the pro wrestling world. His comments in response to Big Swole’s accusations about diversity in AEW did not land well. This caused fans to discuss a lot of things, including Keith Lee’s current free agent status.
Unfortunately, Keith Lee was among several WWE Superstars released from their contracts recently. Immediately after his release, Keith Lee made it clear that the Bearcat gimmick was not his idea at all.
AEW President Tony Khan caused a lot of controversy after he responded to Big Swole calling out AEW for its lack of diversity. It seems this has also led to Keith Lee trending on social media as many fans want him in AEW but others also feel he might not want to go to AEW after what Khan said.
Keith Lee also recently shaded WWE for making money off his name after getting released. Lee went through several changes in his last few days at WWE.
Predictions about his release were already being made as Jim Cornette said that Lee would head for AEW after his WWE release. However, with Lee himself being unsure, we can only wait and watch.
