News On Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt Being Pulled From WWE TLC

Posted October 23, 2017

WWE TLC was supposed to be headlined by The Shield reuniting for the first time in three years.

Reigns' withdrawal will come as a disappointment to lots of fans, who had been looking forward a reunion of The Shield - the stable that saw Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns rise to the top of WWE in 2012.

With Reigns out of the picture, WWE fans got another shock when it was announced that pro wrestling legend and Olympics 1996 gold medallist Kurt Angle, now the manager of Monday Night Raw, will team up with Rollins and Ambrose on Sunday. At TLC, Rollins, Ambrose, and Angle will face The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro, Kane, and Braun Strowman in a 5-on-3 TLC handicap match.
