WWE just announced that Rusev has been added back to the Casket Match against The Undertaker at WWE’s Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia. Rusev was replaced by Chris Jericho last week.
The storyline for the replacement was that Lana was not going to allow her husband to compete in a Casket Match. But Lana made the following tweet today before WWE announced the latest change for the match.
After much thought, I have notified @WWE officials that I have changed my mind. @RusevBUL will celebrate #RusevDay by burying The Undertaker in the sands of Saudi Arabi and will win the Casket Match at #WWEGRR ! #RusevCrush ! Have a Happy Rusev Day !
