WWE star Keith Lee a doubt for Royal Rumble match after girlfriend Mia Yim tests positive for coronavirus
Raw star Keith Lee appears to be a major doubt for Sunday’s 30-man Royal Rumble match.
The Limitless One’s girlfriend, Mia Yim, who also wrestles on the red brand, has confirmed she tested positive for coronavirus.
She tweeted: “This morning at around 10.30am, I debunked a rumour stating I was positive with COVID.
“For that, I must make a statement. I have been getting tested every week for several months now, all have been negatives. I was negative last week.
“I got tested this afternoon less than an hour ago and it came back positive.
“Please respect my privacy. Please stay safe, wash your hands, and wear a mask. See you all soon!”
Subsequently Yim, who goes by the name ‘Reckoning’ in the Retribution stable, is ruled out of the women’s Royal Rumble match.
Yim’s positive test will mean Lee has to self-isolate if he came into close contact with her.
Lee is one of the favourites to win the men’s Royal Rumble match, along with Daniel Bryan and Edge.
Vince McMahon is believed to be a big fan of Lee, who is a former NXT champion.
Since being called up to the main roster last year, Lee has beaten Randy Orton, picked up the winning pinfall for the Raw Survivor Series team and had a great showing in a losing effort for the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre.
