Pro Wrestling Sheet reports their sources told them that creative knew about the possibility of needing to replace Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt earlier in the week.

Kurt Angle's sudden involvement in the Tables, Ladders and Chairs match Sunday night creates a ton of questions.

WWE just announced that Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt will not be competing at TLC on Sunday due to illness ... but their replacements should make up for the change.

SK Uthappa (24th minute) and Gurjant Singh (33rd minute) made it 4-0 before SV Sunil got the fifth goal in the 40th minute. Lalit finished off a brilliant team move with a fierce backhander in the 52nd minute to make it 3-0 in India's favour.

'We have confirmed that three of our performers have been diagnosed with a viral infection, ' a WWE representative said to ESPN. With Wyatt out, WWE is taking AJ Styles off of a SmackDown tour of South America and placing him in the ring with Finn Balor for the first time ever.

Factor in the danger that exists in a match involving so many weapons and high-risk spots, along with Angle's considerable history of neck injuries, and you have a scenario that is far from ideal for the Olympic gold medalist. "As a precautionary measure, we are ensuring in-ring performers and staff are tested and immunized in accordance with recommended medical guidelines".

Wyatt's real-life brother, Bo Dallas, is reportedly the third wrestler who is sick. It will be Angle's first televised match for WWE since August 8, 2006, against Sabu on the then-recently relaunched ECW brand.
