Chris Jericho replaces Rusev, faces Undertaker at WWE Greatest Royal Rumble



The Undertaker will still be wrestling at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia later this month, it just won’t be against Rusev.

In an interesting turn of events, WWE has announced that Chris Jericho will now be facing The Undertaker at the WWE Network exclusive event. The casket match stipulation still applies.

Before the change occured, Rusev’s wife, WWE superstar Lana, sent out the following tweet in regards to the situation.

There’s been speculation of Rusev being removed from the match due to The Undertaker’s wife, Michelle McCool, being upset over comments Rusev and Lana made to TMZSports. As of now that doesn’t appear to be the case with the above social media post from Lana being sent out at WWE’s behest.
