WWE has announced that Chris Jericho will be replacing Rusev for the casket match at The Greatest Royal Rumble show in Saudi Arabia. You read that right, Chris Jericho vs. The Undertaker in a couple of weeks and it will stream live on the WWE Netrowk.
There's no word on why the match was changed but it could have been because management wanted to present a bigger marquee match since they are stacking the card as much as possible so they can sell out the 60,000 seat stadium.
On Twitter, the storyline explanation was that Lana was refusing to allow her husband to compete in a casket match. She said, "All over the world, little boys and girls are celebrating #RusevDay, they smile for the greatest Superstar ever ! I’ve already spoke with @WWE officials to change that match because I REFUSE to let my husband @RusevBUL compete in a Casket Match at #WWEGRR! Happy #RusevDay"
