Tony Khan Clarifies Keith Lee Status For AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest AEW

AEW President Tony Khan has provided some clarification on Keith Lee’s status for Wednesday’s edition of Dynamite: Fyter Fest.

Lee is scheduled to team with Swerve Strickland on the show in an AEW Tag Team Championship three-way bout.

Ahead of the contest, Lee revealed that he has recently received some bad news, dedicating the upcoming match to his brothers, and hinting that he might be taking some time away from the ring soon.

Lee didn’t specify what the news was, leading some to express concern for his health, following previous issues he had to deal with in WWE.

On Busted Open Radio, Khan clarified that Lee will be in action on Dynamite, noting that he is dealing with a family situation.

Khan said:

“I don’t want to get into Keith’s personal business. Keith is here, he is wrestling tonight. He had a family situation. It’s not my place to talk about it. Keith is here and here to wrestle, as I understand it. I can’t really comment on what is happening, but we’re going to support him through what is happening.”

Prior to his latest tweet, Lee had taken to Twitter on July 9 to write:

“Today… I request prayers for two of my brothers. Scary things are about and rough times have taken over. If you are struggling, I offer positive thoughts and this scream of frustration for you. None of us will tap out. Let us fight.”

We send our best wishes to Keith Lee and his family.
