WWE changes Undertaker match at Greatest Royal Rumble

New Details on Brock Lesnar's WWE Contract, WrestleMania Finish

New Details on Brock Lesnar's WWE Contract, WrestleMania Finish

In a stunning turn of events, The Undertaker will battle Chris Jericho in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27. Pushing all of the theories out of the way as to why this match was switched up, Chris Jericho still had a message for The Undertaker.

According to WWE.com, Rusev was pulled from the casket match after his manager and wife Lana took to Twitter to announce she has swayed WWE to not let the Bulgarian Brute take part in such a match.

Lana tweeted: "All over the world, little boys and girls are celebrating #RusevDay, they smile for the greatest Superstar ever!"

You can see how WWE explained the match change in their official announcement below. It was said that while Mysterio and WWE have been in talks recently about a full-time return to the company (outside of the confirmed Saudi Arabia appearance), it has not been confirmed yet if the two sides have agreed on terms.


"It's Rusev Day, you know?" "Undertaker is kind of a little bit in the past". The only thing that's a little bit worrying to me is it's a Casket Match.

"I'll beat him so bad it may be his last fight", he said.

Taker's wife Michelle McCool saw a TMZ headline on Twitter and responded. McCool tweeted. "Guess some people are smarter than others". WWE confirmed to Newsweek that Rusev will take Jericho's spot in the 50-man Royal Rumble match.

PWInsider Elite Audio's Mike Johnson cited Rusev asking for his release prior to WrestleMania 34 as one possible reason for him being added last-minute to the U.S. Championship match.
