Now here's a tin foil hat... No reason has been given so far as to why was this match changed; Rusev released it, WWE did it and that it was gonna be a Casket Match after (correct if I am wrong) a good 7 years. Big deal and all of a sudden BOOM! Y2J. Machka injured, doghoused? Speculatively speaking, this might have been done to actually not have an emerging face against Taker, then again, Jericho is gonna get a solid pop and reaction too. Maybe the Saudis just don't like the Soviets.
