The Undertaker is in for Greatest Royal Rumble

The Undertaker is in for Greatest Royal Rumble

But WWE has since replaced Rusev with six-time world champion Chris Jericho. "I've already spoke with @WWE officials to change that match because I REFUSE to let my husband @RusevBUL compete in a Casket Match at #WWEGRR!"

This week, Rusev quickly went from having a casket match against The Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble at the King Abdullah Sports City, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia on April 27, to being removed from the match entirely and potentially leaving the company altogether. After all, The Undertaker is wrestling in what could turn out to be his final Casket Match on the big show in Saudi Arabia.

WWE.com reported on Wednesday the storyline reason for the change was Rusev's wife Lana publicly campaigning on Twitter for Rusev to be pulled from the match as she anxious for his safety. And if Rusev had won, I could see that finally being the catalyst for WWE to actually give Rusev a long overdue push. "Nothing like that. They just decided Jericho vs Undertaker would be a better match even though they announced Rusev vs Undertaker before they figured that out".

What do you think of Rusev being swapped with Jericho?

"I'll beat him so bad, maybe it's his last fight, yeah".

More top names have been added to the Greatest Royal Rumble line-up, including Chris Jericho and Kurt Angle.

"Originally, the Casket Match was to be between The Deadman and Rusev". Unfortunately, that means that, as of right now, his scheduled appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble event is only scheduled as a "one-shot deal".
