Keith Lee reacts to being ‘pulled’ from WWE Raw
Former NXT Champion and self-proclaimed “Unlimited” Keith Lee has been on a losing streak for the past few months. First, missing multiple editions of Monday Night Raw due to COVID-19 protocols and then missing a planned triple threat match during the 2021 edition of the Elimination pay-per-view. On social media via Twitter, Lee summed up his feelings and thoughts on the matter in a very short but shocking post that read, “Hard times.” You can see it below. This rumor of Keith Lee’s victory in the WWE Championship was revealed recently.
In other news about the former North American NXT Champion, Dave Meltzer recently discussed during a new edition of Wrestling Observer Radio why Keith Lee was ultimately replaced during the Elimination Chamber triple threat match with John Morrison. Lee was originally scheduled to face then-current WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley in the pay-per-view event along with “The Original Bro” Riddle. However, at the last minute Lee was pulled out of the game due to injury and Morrison was named a replacement after winning a match in the pre-show. Meltzer explained how the third man in this match was critical.
“The end came when Riddle hit Lashley with the MVP crutch and sent him out of the ring, leaving Morrison exposed and Riddle capitalizing and winning the title. Only a Triple Threat would have allowed that kind of sequence and whoever came out of the Fatal Four-Way in the pre-show was going to be asked to do the favors for Riddle and Lashley. ” Keith Lee downloaded on WWE fans before missing Raw not long ago

Vince McMahon disrespects Dominik Mysterio backstage
Vince McMahon has been known in his career for shutting down stupid ideas like an Undertaker and Kevin Nash pitch that would otherwise seemingly go with his WWE audience. This is no exception to the rule, at least in Vince’s mind. For the Mysterios, it is the utmost disrespect.
Dominik Mysterio made his WWE debut at last summer’s Summerslam pay-per-view event and has been hot and cold ever since. While this is not the fault of the son of the legendary Rey Mysterio, this shows that there were much better ways to book.
Veteran Spanish commentator Hugo Savinovich spoke with Dr. Chris Featherstone for an episode of “UnSkripted” for Sportskeeda. Hugo has some answers on why side action has been ongoing for Dominik.
Hugo: “Great potential, I think Rey paid a high price. They have mistreated him really bad. They gave him a good contract now. I think vince [McMahon] He made a serious mistake, a horrible mistake, by not letting the Mexican Wrestler’s story work. It had to be ‘El Mascarado’: the masked father Rey Mysterio giving Dominik Mysterio the torch, the mask. “
It’s unclear what’s next for Dominik, but he has the potential to be a star. Fate is in the hands of the WWE writing team for now.
New Day’s ‘surprise’ Undertaker in WWE locker room
Undertaker infuriated Xavier Woods by burying ‘video game nerds’ in WWE last month, but it seems like all is well between the two WWE stars. Mike Chioda is a legendary name in the world of professional wrestling, having been in the industry for over thirty years. Now an All Elite Wrestling official, Chioda spent most of his time as a WWE referee. During a recent edition of the ‘Monday Mailbag’ on AdFreeShows, Chioda spoke about how WWE icon The Undertaker reacted to a gift given him by multiple-time former tag team champion Xavier Woods and New Day. Woods reacted when The Undertaker buried the WWE roster in January.
The gift was a judge’s gavel that Woods has personally recorded for The Undertaker. Undertaker infamously served as a judge during his time on ‘Wrestlers Court,’ a behind-the-scenes way for WWE roster members to resolve various disputes. Chioda stated the following quote.
“I remember, I think not long ago Xavier Woods bought Taker, one of the handles with the judge, the mallets or something that the judge has, and Taker loved that thing. You know, I think if you want to talk about blowing up Taker, when he was introduced to that, and I think he says, ‘The judge, the undertaker, the judge, the jury and … You know, and he recorded it for him. .
Chioda continued: “Yeah, Xavier Woods blew up Taker with that, man. That was a very good gift. I think Taker said something like, at one point, he was like … one of the best gifts anyone ever gave him, and I was like, ‘Shit, I never thought about that’ (laughs). I should have gotten him one of them. ” Undertaker’s plans for WWE in 2021 were recently revealed.
