I can’t keep in mind a pay-per-view in recent memory with so many twists and turns earlier than the show, especially a normally B-Level event like TLC.
However viral infections are not any joke and may take down even the most mighty of WWE Superstars.
Roman Reigns one way or the other turned into Kurt Angle on the TLC poster and Finn Balor is now going through The Phenomenal One instead of Sister Abigail.
Typically it goes to show it’s best to never underestimate the importance of WWE and the risks of contagious diseases.

Kalisto worked round Enzo through the beginning of this match. Something that was being completed in the ring was mostly Kalisto’s talent if not all of it.
