After Keith Lee wrote a tweet saying that he paid all his medical bills, WWE responded to the allegations four days later, labeling them “erroneous.”
Writing on his birthday, he said this was not a happy birthday, but a grateful one, after a tough year which almost killed him.
“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.”
WWE, which usually pay all expenses when it comes to health while under contract, responded with a statement of their own.
“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,” the statement read.
