WWE hits with viral infection

By Daily Sports on October 22, 2017

A nasty viral infection has been making the rounds in the WWE locker room, with several big name stars getting sick in recent weeks — including a pair of pay-per-view headliners.

The company confirmed Friday in a statement that at least three wrestlers had fallen ill.

As a result, two of them — Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt — have been pulled from this weekend’s “TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs” PPV.

“The special event will now feature Kurt Angle competing in a WWE ring for the first time in more than 11 years, as he replaces Roman Reigns,” WWE wrote on its website.

“In addition, former WWE Champion AJ Styles will replace Bray Wyatt and face ‘The Demon’ Finn Bálor.”

Wyatt’s real-life brother, Bo Dallas, is reportedly the third wrestler who is sick. He’s been missing from action for several weeks, though it’s been unclear as to why.

WWE now plans to test all of its superstars in the wake of the viral outbreak.

“As a precautionary measure, we are ensuring in-ring performers and staff are tested and immunized in accordance with recommended medical guidelines,” the company told ESPN in a statement.
