Kurt Angle will wrestle at TLC; ‘medical issues’ forces AJ Styles into action as well

Those rumors and reports about medical issues hitting WWE and keeping wrestlers like Bo Dallas and Bray Wyatt out of action appear to be true after all. But those two aren’t the only wrestlers affected.

The issue has become bad enough that Roman Reigns has been pulled from the upcoming TLC event scheduled for this Sun., Oct. 22, 2017, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In a big shock, WWE has decided to replace him with none other than current Raw General Manager Kurt Angle.

The rest of the participants in that match (Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins on one side, Braun Strowman, Kane, The Miz, Cesaro, and Sheamus on the other) will remain in place.

Elsewhere, Wyatt has been pulled from the card and replaced by SmackDown Live’s AJ Styles, who will wrestle Finn Balor for the first time in WWE.

No other changes have been announced for the card but with sickness going around, there’s no telling what else might happen.

Stay tuned.
