WWE Announces New Opponent For The Undertaker At Greatest Royal Rumble

Looks like Rusev won't be buried in Saudi Arabia after all, after WWE dramatically announced that he has been replaced by Chris Jericho for his casket match opposite The Undertaker on 27 April's Greatest Royal Rumble. "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!". He beat The Dead Man on the Feb 9th, 2010 episode of SmackDown and again on Feb 21st, 2010 at the Elimination Chamber where Y2J defeated Taker, John Morrison, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, and R-Truth to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

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.

The announcement comes hours after Rusev and Lana called out "The Phenom" during a TMZ interview.

The Casket Match undoubtedly belongs to The Undertaker, as The Demon of Death Valley has claimed victory in several of these harrowing contests, wherein a Superstar only wins when he gets his opponent into the casket and closes the lid. The new match features Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho in a casket match. "But so am I, it's Rusev Day", Rusev told the interviewer.

When asked if Undertaker was past his prime, "The Bulgarian Brute" responded, "Just a little bit".

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.
