With just days to go until Sunday's WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view, WWE announced that due to medical issues, both Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt will not be able to perform.

Angle, now appearing on-screen as the general manager of "Monday Night Raw", will take Reigns' spot in the "Tables, Ladders and Chairs" main event, teaming up with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to take on The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Braun Strowman and Kane.

In a statement to ESPN, a WWE representative said, "We have confirmed that three of our performers have been diagnosed with a viral infection". Replacing him will be Smackdown Live superstar AJ Styles, making it his first Raw match since being drafted to the Tuesday night show in 2016.

Pro Wrestling Torch has reported that WWE wrestlers are being tested for viral meningitis, a disease that might be effecting several people on the roster. PWInsider reports that Dallas is the only wrestler to have shown symptoms, while Wyatt and Offerman are being quarantined as a precaution. Since that time, Angle spent a decade wrestling for Impact Wrestling.

But it's the return of Kurt Angle which is getting WWE especially excited, and the WWE Hall of Famer has kept himself in good physical condition since he returned to the company earlier this year.
