Post Wrestling provided the following update regarding this Royal Rumble 2019 Title match confusion:

“Asuka vs Becky Lynch at the Rumble was the plan and was going to be announced on SmackDown. It was decided Tuesday that the Rumble card would be re-evaluated and the match may or may not happen, but the studio had the old information and used it for Main Event.”
