There was an apparent last-minute change of plans to the 20-man Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal at WWE Battleground. Damien Sandow, dressed as a “beach bum,” was included, when he was previously pulled and Rob Van Dam was noticeably absent.
It should be noted that Fandango was pulled as he was scripted into a Kickoff match earlier in the night against Adam Rose.
RVD seemed to indicate something was up earlier on Sunday on Twitter. He Tweeted the following:

I know RVD’s latest short-term WWE contract was coming up but do not have further details on his exclusion as of press time.
