Kurt Angle Returns To Wrestling At WWE TLC, Replacing Roman Reigns; Wyatt Replaced By AJ Styles In Match Against Finn Balor

Major changes have been made to WWE TLC in the wake of an illness that have plagued the WWE roster for the last couple of weeks.

WWE broke the news this afternoon on their website that both Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt would not be able to compete at WWE TLC on Sunday night. Instead, Kurt Angle will compete in a WWE ring for the first time since 2006, teaming with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to take on Sheamus, Cesaro, Kane, The Miz and Braun Strowman in a 5 on 3 handicap match.

Additionally, Bray Wyatt will not be able to make WWE TLC on Sunday for his match against Finn Balor. AJ Styles will instead take his place in what also will be a first.

The news comes as a rash of departures, absences and sicknesses have stricken both Raw and Smackdown over the last two weeks. It seems to have originated with Bo Dallas contracting an illness, sending him home alongside Bray Wyatt and Jojo. AJ Styles did not compete at a house show last night in Bueno Aries, Argentina, but is slated to be back tonight in the same city. Kevin Owens has been sent home from the tour altogether, and it is unknown what his status is at this time.
