  1. I have no knowledge on Bobby T being sick, I am just pointing out that maybe that is a reason that Klapp weighed in. I’m not saying I want to skip the match or suggesting that is something that TnT considers. But there are wrestlers in the B1G who have sat out this year b/c they were sick or “sick”.
