Kurt Angle To Replace Roman Reigns At WWE TLC 2017 As Illness Destroys Raw Locker Room
WWE TLC 2017 has received shocking updates over the past hour or so as WWE.comreported Kurt Angle is set to replace Roman Reigns in the TLC main event.
Kurt Angle is set to make his in-ring return at WWE TLC 2017
As somewhat of an honorary member of The Shield, Angle will now team with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to take on Sheamus, Cesaro, The Miz, Braun Strowman and Kane.
Meanwhile, AJ Styles is set to replace Bray Wyatt in what was shaping up to be a cringe-worthy matchup against Finn Balor.
The card reads like WWE giving away the first half of WrestleMania, but the last-minute changes are reportedly the result of The mumps tearing through the Raw locker room like a Braun Strowman stunt.
Earlier this week it was reported that Wyatt, his brother Bo Dallas and JoJo Offerman—whom he is alleged to be dating—were infected with viral meningitis.
And while the reports were shot down by Offerman’s mother, a contagious disease of some nature has suddenly put Raw’s top stars out of commission until further notice.
The disease is believed to be the mumps, which is an airborne virus that can be spread via saliva, utensils, plates or cups.
Symptoms take 16-18 days to appear, and can take up to a week to dissipate.
