Fightful Select had asked why the change took place and they were able to get some notes about the constantly changing creative process.

It was noted that instead of that match, the idea of Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn in Hell in a Cell was pitched. It was likely to place at the show, but that was also changed by early Friday afternoon.
