Finn Balor was scheduled to take on Baron Corbin on an episode of Monday Night RAW in 2018, but didn't make the show after being pulled from the South American tour for an unspecified reason.

Baron Corbin ended up taking on Seth Rollins for the episode of RAW, but WWE didn't reveal what had actually happened and why the former Universal Champion had been pulled from the show at the last minute.

Speculation at the time suggested that he might have been injured, until PWInsider reported that Finn Balor was in fact ill with an unknown illness. Whatever it was can't have been that serious as Balor did go on to wrestle just a few days later in Tables, Ladders and Chairs against Drew McIntyre.

This could've been a case of WWE being careful with their Superstars as viral infections or diseases are certainly nothing to mess around with as we've all found out recently. But WWE had another reminder that contagious illnesses can derail a show a little before this, which we'll get to later.
