Chris Jericho Replaces Rusev in Greatest Royal Rumble Match vs. the Undertaker

The Undertaker is in for Greatest Royal Rumble

Rusev was originally scheduled to be The Undertaker's opponent in the Casket Match but, for unknown reasons, Chris Jericho will be replacing Rusev in the match.

WWE continues to pull out all of the stops for its Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on April 27. He beat The Dead Man on the Feb 9th, 2010 episode of SmackDown and again on Feb 21st, 2010 at the Elimination Chamber where Y2J defeated Taker, John Morrison, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, and R-Truth to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Here is a video of TMZ Sports catching up with Lana and Rusev for comments about the upcoming match.

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

State lawmakers are scheduled to return to Frankfort Friday and Saturday for the two final days of this year's law-making session. The group started by encouraging teachers to wear red to school on Wednesdays, using the hashtag #RedforED in social media posts.

It will be the first time ever that the two have gone head-to-head in a singles match on a WWE Network Special. Although Jericho has never been a part of such an ominous showdown, WWE's first Undisputed Champion has battled in virtually every other kind of match WWE has to offer, and if his extensive résumé says anything, it's that he knows how to win when it counts. On a recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez explained the unusual situation of Rusev's removal from the match.

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. They simply decided Jericho vs Undertaker would be a better match even though they announced Rusev vs Undertaker before they came to that conclusion.
