I didn't read it as erasing SW2, instead it was a precursor to it. I could be wrong. But it ends with him on Earth. IIRC, Xavier wasn't around for SW2 - it was after he went up to space and was replaced by Magneto.

Xavier was there for at least part of it, as he was the first one to realize the Beyonder was on Earth in Secret Wars II #1, and mentally contacted Captain America about it.
