WWE recently broke the news that Kurt Angle would be making his in-ring return as part of TLC on Sunday night as he replaces Roman Reigns who is reportedly now suffering from mumps or meningitis.

The former WWE Champion was set to main event the show with Shield teammates Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose as the group was scheduled to team together for the first time as The Shield in more than three years. However, the Shield reunion is now on hold.

The news comes along with a number of other issues for WWE ahead of TLC as many illnesses seem to be spreading around the locker room.

Despite the fact that Kurt Angle is a fantastic replacement to draft in at short notice, Angle should have been given better build up ahead of his return to the ring and there were a number of other stars who could have come in to replace Roman on Sunday night instead.

#5 AJ Styles

Even though AJ Styles is a SmackDown Live superstar, it seems that WWE has still called upon The Phenomenal One to come in to replace Bray Wyatt on Sunday night in his match against "The Demon" Finn Balor.

AJ Styles is one of the most popular stars in the company right now and shockingly he doesn't seem to be part of a major storyline on SmackDown after losing his United States Championship to Baron Corbin at Hell in a Cell.

AJ could easily come in and join The Shield, he has been a leader of The Bullet Club before and knows exactly what it's like to step into someone's shoes. There is no reason why AJ shouldn't have been given the nod ahead of Kurt Angle.
