Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Bo Dallas pulled from TLC

This will be Angle's first match in a WWE ring in more than 11 years when he lost to Randy Orton at Vengeance 2006.

The company revealed earlier this afternoon that Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt won't be wrestling at Sunday's pay-per-view due to medical issues that are impacting them.

Since retiring from the WWE, Angle returned in an administrative capacity - he's now the General Manager of Raw - but at the upcoming pay-per-view, he'll join forces with Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose to battle the daunting combination of Braun Strowman, Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus and The Big Red Machine Kane in a Tables, Ladders & Chairs 5-on-3 Handicap Match. For those of you that missed it, Wyatt is one of the wrestlers dealing with an illness so he is not cleared to wrestle. I'm sure Daniel Bryan is also excited to see Angle back in action in the WWE, but he did say that he found the announcement "interesting". A chunk of the WWE roster, including Angle's new TLC teammates and opponents, turned to Twitter to express their excitement about the returning Olympic Gold Medalist. While Roman Reigns may prove to be irreplaceable, breaking the emergency glass for Kurt Angle is certainly a refreshingly ambitious crack for WWE.

With Wyatt off, it will be "SmackDown" superstar AJ Styles taking his place against Finn Balor in a singles match.
