After a few replacements, the match between the Deadman Undertaker and The Bulgarian Brute Rusev is on the card in a Casket match in The Greatest Royal Rumble. The match is scheduled on April 27 at the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium in Jeddah.

Initially, the bout was scheduled with the duo but later was replaced by Chris Jericho. According to WWE's storyline, it was Rusev's wife Lana who pleaded with management to remove her husband from such a deadly match. But, it seems Lana has given a second thought and now the match between Rusev and the Taker is confirmed.

The match between the duo would be a Casket Match. In this match, the opponent superstar has to put their opponent in a coffin and closes the lid.

In a tweet, Lana wrote: “After much thought, I have notified @WWE officials that I have changed my mind. @RusevBUL will celebrate #RusevDay by burying The Undertaker in the sands of Saudi Arabi [sic] and will win the Casket Match at #WWEGRR ! #RusevCrush ! Have a Happy Rusev Day !”

Earlier after Rusev's match with the Undertaker was cancelled he had removed all WWE content from his social media.

Other big matches would be between John Cena and Triple H shortly. Brock Lesnar will defend the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match.
