The Undertaker Announced for “The Greatest Royal Rumble” in Saudi Arabia, Update on Opponent

Following his triumphant return at WrestleMania 34, The Undertaker will take on Chris Jericho in a Casket match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, which takes place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Friday, April 27 (5PM BST).

The object of a Casket match is for a WWE Superstar to trap their opponent inside the casket and close the lid. Rusev was set to be in the match but Lana announced on Twitter she refuses to let her husband compete in a Casket Match.

The Greatest Royal Rumble will stream live on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East (in Sky Sports in UK). This event is the first as part of a 10-year partnership between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The event will also feature the first-ever 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match, John Cena vs. Triple, Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Universal Championship match, a SmackDown Live Tag Team Championship match between The Bludgeon Brothers and The Usos as well as 5 other Championship matches – WWE Championship, Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship, Raw Tag Team Championship and the Cruiserweight Championship.
