We reported over the weekend that WWE changed the plans for the main event for NXT Takeover: New Orleans because Lars Sullivan hadn’t been heard from and at the time of press it was unknown of his status. Instead of Lars challenging Andrade “Cien” Almas for the NXT Championship, it now appears that Aleister Black is the direction they are going.

Dave Meltzer provided an update on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio and mentioned Lars has been dealing with a knee injury and another health issue. While Meltzer didn’t elaborate what the other health issue is, he did say that he’s expected to return to the company sometime this week.
