And you though this show was going to be a disaster didn’t you?
A viral meningitis outbreak has caused massive changes to this Sunday’s TLC show. The biggest being that Roman Reigns is OUT of the main event match. That puts The Shield reunion on hold for the time being. In his place? Well that is current RAW GM Kurt Angle.
That’s right, Kurt Angle is stepping in a WWE ring for the first time in eleven years on 48 hours notice.
You would have to assume Angle will be massively protected in this match. I pray to god that he doesn’t do a moonsault off the ladder. My guess is that Angle has been cleared and was being saved for Wrestlemania. But the WWE was desperate and put him in this match to still make it a big deal. I would have wanted Angle’s first match to obviously been built better, but the moment itself will obviously be cool.
Also, Bray Wyatt is out meaning we thankfully won’t have to see Sister Abigail vs The Demon. In Bray’s place will be AJ Styles. That’s right, the two former leaders of the Bullet Club are going one on one. Another match that should have been saved. But I can see that the WWE had to do something to save the show. Maybe they can get Kenny Omega and make it a triple threat?
We will have our TLC Preview up tomorrow. In the meantime, follows us on Twitter @HTCWrestling!
