Undertaker, who returned to the ring at Wrestlemania against John Cena was supposed to face the Bulgarian Brute Rusev but WWE has chose to change the match. Jericho defeated the Deadman in the Elimination Chamber Match back in 2010 for the World Heavyweight Championship.
We got superstars Rusev and Lana just hours after WWE announced Undertaker vs. Rusev at their "Greatest Royal Rumble" event in Saudi Arabia. and the power couple told us Taker's about to take his last ride in the ring.
WWE.com reported on Wednesday the storyline reason for the change was Rusev's wife Lana publicly campaigning on Twitter for Rusev to be pulled from the match as she anxious for his safety.
Rusev was the man originally scheduled to grapple the legend, but now WWE chiefs have secured free agent Jericho's services. And if Rusev had won, I could see that finally being the catalyst for WWE to actually give Rusev a long overdue push.
Chris Jericho Replaces Rusev in Greatest Royal Rumble Match vs. the Undertaker
Rusev took to Twitter the day after the announcement of his match with Undertaker with a amusing, self-aware tweet about the likely outcome of the match.
What do you think of Rusev being swapped with Jericho? Originally, Chris Jericho was advertised for the 50-Man Royal Rumble Match but has since been removed from the list of confirmed participants.
He tweeted: "I beat #TheUndertaker for @wwe title before". There's been a significant change made to April 27's Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia.
As of this post, nineteen Superstars have been confirmed for the 50-Man Royal Rumble Match, most notably Daniel Bryan and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle.
