AEW Worlds End: Keith Lee makes STARTLING admission before event

Last updated

AEW Worlds End is set to take place tonight, and Keith Lee is set for a bout against Swerve Strickland after both failed in the Continental Classic.

Hours before the actual PPV event started, Lee would take to social media to reveal to fans that he has been dealing with a long-term injury.

“Today… I keep it very real with you guys. I have been working through an injury since Arthur Ashe Stadium 2022. It has been mostly well taken care of. Things have been worse since Final Battle. I am trying to get through today for you guys, but I cannot promise anything.”

UPDATE: It was revealed by Tony Khan earlier tonight that Dustin Rhodes would be taking the place of Keith Lee against Strickland.
