Finn Balor isn’t the only WWE Superstar under the weather!
After being sent home early last weekend from WWE’s South American tour (see the original story here), it was said this week on RAW that Finn Balor was dealing with an injury suffered at the hands of his TLC opponent, Drew McIntyre, last week (find that here).
Of course, this was just an angle and we would later learn the real reason for Finn’s absences were due to an illness (read about that here), yet it was expected he would be good to go for Sunday’s pay-per-view. Getting some kind of sickness this time of year is certainly not an uncommon occurrence for anyone and now it appears as if Balor’s not the only one dealing with something.
Prior to Monday’s RAW, WWE had announced that Alexa Bliss would be holding a press conference about the Women’s Division as part of the broadcast. However when the time came, Alexa was quickly cut-off by Nia Jax and Tamina before she could utter a word. The following day via Twitter, Bliss would note that she too is not feeling that great:

According to The Wrestling Observer, Alexa is feeling the effects of a bad cold which is why she was cut-off by Nia Jax and Tamina, thus the scheduled press conference never really took place. Additionally, one-half of the new RAW Tag Team Champions ‘The Glorious’ Bobby Roode is also said to be having a rough go of it, as he reportedly is having trouble even speaking. Of course while it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s not believed that either will be missing much, if any time.
