The Greatest Royal Rumble: The Undertaker confirmed for Jeddah Casket Match

The Undertaker is in for Greatest Royal Rumble

Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho (Casket Match) | WWE

Rusev was originally scheduled to be The Undertaker's opponent in the Casket Match but, for unknown reasons, Chris Jericho will be replacing Rusev in the match.

Former World Wrestling Entertainment champion Chris Jericho has promised to "bury" The Undertaker after his stunning return to WWE was confirmed on Thursday night.

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.

It will be the first time ever that the two have gone head-to-head in a singles match on a WWE Network Special.

In total, 33 Palestinians have been killed and thousands wounded by Israeli forces since the " Great March of Return " began. Israel says it is doing what it must to defend its border, and to stop any of the protesters getting across the fence.

Alvarez also noted that Rusev is not quitting, leaving, or getting fired by WWE.

So it appears, for now at least, that Rusev Day isn't going to be a thing of the past in the WWE anytime soon.

"Undertaker is a little bit in the past", Rusev told TMZ Sports at The Henry in WeHo.

It's been a odd couple of months for The Bulgarian Brute, as the rise of popularity of Rusev Day, whether it be through fans chanting 'Rusev Day!' or through rising merchandise sales, hasn't really transitioned into success in the ring.

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

The rules to a casket match are that both men must try and get the other one in an open casket, with the victor being the one who achieves this and shuts the casket door on their opponent to close it.

But in the end, putting Chris Jericho in this match would be a great nostalgia match for Attitude Era fans who grew up watching people like Y2J and Taker.
