WWE & Enzo Amore Comment On Him Missing RAW Due To Being Hospitalized With An Illness

As reported earlier this evening, WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore was sent to the hospital from backstage at RAW at the American Airlines Arena due to coming down with an illness believed to be the same one that resulted in Braun Strowman being sent home from the recent holiday tour early.

WWE and Enzo Amore both posted about the situation during tonight's broadcast as a way to explain the scrapped title match with number one contender Cedric Alexander that was scheduled for tonight's show.

Hospitalized Enzo Amore chronicles his unique New Year's Day

The flu prevented Enzo Amore from defending his WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander tonight on a special New Year's Day edition of Raw, but nothing could keep The Certified G from taking to social media to share his unfortunate predicament and his unsuccessful attempt to enter the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.

"I apologize to the fans who won't get to see a #G tonight in #Miami ... I did everything I could from Toronto to Miami... From negative weather, through customs, to opting out on Diddy's nye party in Miami, 10 hrs in a hospital, I did everything in my power to make sure I would be in that ring tonight to whoop Cedric Alexander's hind-end ... Ultimately: it was outta my hands. And I got the best freakin hands," Amore wrote on Instagram.
