Backstage Update on Jinder Mahal’s HIAC Opponent, Orton vs. Rusev

As previously reported, the initial plan was for Jinder Mahal to face Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship at the Smackdown Live Brand Exclusive PPV Hell in a Cell inside the Hell in a Cell. It was also reported that Randy Orton will face Rusev at the Hell in a Cell PPV. 
On a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez speculated that next week’s #1 contender match between Randy Orton and Shinsuke Nakamura could see Orton win the match and go on to challenge Mahal at the Hell in a Cell PPV. This would mean that the initially planned rematch between Shinsuke Nakamura and Jinder Mahal will be pushed out for several weeks.
It was also reported that there is a working plan for Rusev and Orton to begin a program soon despite the nine second match they had at SummerSlam. As a result, it is possible that we could see Rusev interfere in any potential match that Orton may have against Mahal for the WWE Championship.
