Supposedly, it was always the plan to sub-out Braun Strohman. The reason I've heard for the swerve is that Vinnie Mac felt Braun would sell more tickets. Now, if I was in charge of booking giving this planning, I would have done a better job of putting over Balor since this was decided, but that's not how WWE works these days. Better to go with 50/50 booking until 1-2 weeks before the announcement...amIright?
