There are conflicting reports concerning WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore who took himself to the hospital before Raw last night. According to PWInsider, he arrived at the arena an hour before the show started and was pushing to be allowed to compete on the show to defend his WWE Cruiserweight Championship in his advertised match with Cedric Alexander.
WWE officials reportedly ordered him to return to the hospital and told him he would not be appearing on the show. Some sources are reporting Amore might have the flu and it is certainly the line WWE are taking, but others say that Amore simply partied too hard on New Year's Eve.

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.
