According to a statement released by a WWE representative, Roman Reigns is among three wrestlers who will be unable to take part in this weekend’s TLC pay-per-view event after coming down with an unspecified viral infection. Bray Wyatt will also not be wrestling on Sunday, and everyone is getting tested for whatever is going around.

We have confirmed that three of our performers have been diagnosed with a viral infection. As a precautionary measure, we are ensuring in-ring performers and staff are tested and immunized in accordance with recommended medical guidelines.

Those two will be replaced by A.J. Styles and Kurt Angle, who last wrestled for the WWE in August 2006. Angle’s currently the general manager on Monday Night Raw, and he seems pretty excited to get back in the ring.
