Not so fast? With so many talented stars on the AEW roster, it is difficult for someone to stand out. One of the easiest way is to have someone look and wrestle differently than almost anyone else. That is what you get with a few stars but that does not mean everyone is happy. Now we know a bit more about what is going on with a certain AEW star, and it might not be as bad as it has been rumored to be.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: She’s In? Becky Lynch Teases A Return To NXT With Target In Sight

Earlier this week, rumors began to circulate that Keith Lee had walked out of AEW. This came after reports of him “walking out” of last week’s AEW Dynamite taping. However, according to Fightful Select, the situation was due to a misunderstanding. Lee was at the Dynamite taping and told he would not be appearing on the show. He then left, as wrestlers regularly do when they are not being used at a show, though he was still planned for that night’s Rampage. Lee was gone before the message could be relayed to him and plans had to be changed. There is nothing to suggest any heat between the two sides.

Lee has been a star. Check out what he can do when he is around:

Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on with Lee, but the fact that fans are unsure if he is still with the company is rather telling. Lee has not exactly been featured very much in recent months and it would be nice to see him getting to do something else in the future. Hopefully that is in AEW, but it doesn’t matter how much of an athletic marvel is if he isn’t going to be in the ring.

What do you think of Lee’s time in AEW? How should he be used? Let us know in the comments below.
