On social media, Mysterio is listed as one of the six competitors while Rusev is not.

As of this writing, WWE.com is advertising Mysterio on the events page in the graphic, but when you click the graphic for a match preview, Rusev is still listed and advertised as being in the match.

Mike Johnson at PWInsider reports that WWE decided not to use Rusev for the match as he has not agreed on a new contract.
