If you ever have lived where a new temple is dedicated the members get all excited. The local church leaders go all out to butt kiss and impress the member of the first presidency that is to arrive.
So in Chile where President Nelson dedicated a new temple there, he canceled the big celebration the last minute and replaced it with a youth fireside. He told the kids to study and prepare for the temple. ZZZzzzz. What a party pooper! If you ever were involved in a temple celebration it's a ton of work. Someone went through a lot of time and effort to have President Nelson make it all for nothing. I can't think of a better way to symbolize the temple. A lot of work for nothing.
Thomas S. Monson would have showed up. Sat there and enjoyed the big celebration knowing people worked hard on it. They he would give a feel good talk and probably spend some time meeting the members who showed up.
Russ Nelson is above all that. He's going to show up like some arrogant college professor and give you an assignment.
