Ch-Ch-Changes: Rusev Backs Out of Casket Match with Undertaker; Chris Jericho Takes his Place

Posted by April 12, 2018 Comment

A lot of Saudi Arabian WWE fans are going to be very disappointed on Rusev Day. It seems that Rusev will no longer be competing with The Undertaker in their just-announced casket match, according to Instead, The Undertaker will face Chris Jericho, because everyone knows a casket match is better when the combined ages of the two competitors is 100 or more. It’s just more believable that way.

According to WWE, the change isn’t the result of backstage politics or booking indecisiveness, but rather because Rusev’s wife, Lana, didn’t want Rusev competing in the dangerous match.

The match takes place at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia on April 27th… provided there are no further changes before then.
