As noted earlier, several WWE stars have been dealing with an illness. Mandy Rose noted on Instagram that she’s been sick and that is likely why her match with Naomi was scrapped from SmackDown Live. Finn Balor flew home early from the recent Latin American tour but is expected to be fine for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that Alexa Bliss has also been sick and that explains why she did not speak during the “press conference” segment with Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey.
Meltzer noted that Bliss was supposed to have a long promo on the show but the decision was made for her not to speak and they decided to have Nia Jax carry the segment. You may have noticed that Bliss left the ring before the interaction with Ronda Rousey started.
Bliss has a weak voice right now due to a bad cold.
