The Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match was a last minute addition to tonight’s Survivor Series pay-per-view. WWE officials had originally planned for Rey Mysterio to wrestle Alberto Del Rio in a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match at tonight’s show—which explains the banner ad on the front page of the company website.

Since Mysterio has been dealing with an inner ear infection as of late, a decision was made to hold a ten man tag team match instead and limit his work in order to protect his health.

It also explains why Mysterio was used sparingly on Friday’s episode of SmackDown and his singles bout with Del Rio was turned into a Battle Royal.
