Rusev recently spoke about his match against the Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble event last year at the King Abdullah Sports City’s King Abdullah International Stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The event was the first in a series of WWE shows Saudi Arabia as part of a big money partnership between both sides. Originally, WWE had wanted Chris Jericho to wrestle Taker at this show. However, plans changed and Rusev was booked in a Casket Match against “The Deadman.”
Rusev reflected on this contest when he was recently interviewed by Express Sport. This is Rusev shared what the Undertaker told him backstage after the match.
“And ‘Taker is such a special character and he’s been here for like 30 years or whatnot. He’s a legend, he’s an icon, so getting to work with him and talk to him afterwards and pick his brains, it was a great opportunity for me. He told me that I’m really good. I’m not even messing around, he told me I’m really good.”
