UPDATE: As Jon reported earlier today here on eWrestlingNews.com (see below), several WWE Superstars are suffering from illnesses. According to Cageside Seats, Mandy Rose is also ill and that is the reason why her WWE SmackDown! Live match with Naomi on Tuesday night was cancelled.
ORIGINAL (By Jon Fuentes): We recently noted that former WWE Universal Champion Finn Balor was sent home early from WWE’s Latin America tour. Early speculation suggested he was dealing with an injury, but it has since been revealed that Balor was suffering from an illness. And it looks like he’s not the only one. Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Bobby Roode is also suffering from an illness.
He had trouble talking on Raw but still cut his promo. Alexa Bliss is also said to be dealing with a very bad cold and weak voice. She was initially scheduled for a long promo on Raw but the decision was made for her not to speak, and Nia Jax instead carried the segment. Bliss then left the ring when Rousey and Jax interacted. There’s no news on whether or not this will affect the TLC PPV this weekend.
