Brad Shepard of Bodyslam.net is reporting that Rusev’s match with The Undertaker was canceled due to Rusev and Lana’s TMZ comments. This supposedly rubbed someone backstage the wrong way, so the match was canceled. The match was again set after officials understood that the Undertaker wasn’t offended.
Here is a quote from Shepard:
“A source in WWE told me that somebody in the office was definitely rubbed the wrong way by the initial comments Rusev made to TMZ (where he referenced Undertaker as being old). WWE is very sensitive to the potential of offending old timers they realized Undertaker wasn’t offended. They put Rusev back in the match.”
