The flu prevented Enzo Amore from defending his WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander last night on a special New Year’s Day edition of Raw. In a post on Instagram, Amore talked about his unfortunate predicament and unsuccessful attempt to enter the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

“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.

According to PWInsider.com, Amore checked himself out of the emergency room in Miami, Florida and went to Raw, arriving about an hour before the show went on the air. Although Amore pushed that he be allowed to compete, WWE officials informed him they were not going to let him perform sick and ordered him to leave the venue and return to his hotel.
