WWE's Lana & Rusev Rusev's Gonna Retire Undertaker ... CRUSH His Old Ass!

WWE's Lana & Rusev Rusev's Gonna Retire Undertaker ... CRUSH His Old Ass!

Whether this influenced WWE's decision to move Rusev from his one-on-one match with Taker to the 50-man Rumble is unknown.

But the WWE on Thursday announced that the Deadman, himself a seven-time WWE world champion, will now be stepping in the ring with Jericho, who himself has not been in action in a WWE ring since July.

Undertaker was origianlly supposed to face Rusev in a Casket Match at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah on April 27.

Alvarez also noted that Rusev is not quitting, leaving, or getting fired by WWE.

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.

Angle competed in a tag team match with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34, which was his third bout since returning to WWE.

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. "But so am I, it's Rusev Day", Rusev told the interviewer.

"Originally, the Casket Match was to be between The Deadman and Rusev". "Undertaker is kind of a little bit in the past". "I'll beat him so bad it may be his last fight".

While The Undertaker vs Chris Jericho will still be a great match to see, many fans would have preferred to see The Phenom go toe-to-toe with Rusev. Unfortunately, that means that, as of right now, his scheduled appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble event is only scheduled as a "one-shot deal".
