Jericho To Make WWE Return In 'Casket Match' Against Undertaker

The Undertaker is in for Greatest Royal Rumble

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.

Jericho, 47, will replace Rusev to face the Dead Man in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia in a fortnight. Now The Undertaker will battle the first-ever Undisputed Champion in a Casket Match instead.

Rusev was the man originally scheduled to grapple the legend, but now WWE chiefs have secured free agent Jericho's services.

Environment Canada issues warning on ice storm heading for southern Ontario
As the temperature is expected to drop to about - 2 C by Saturday afternoon, the freezing rain will likely become heavier. On Saturday, Environment Canada issued freezing rain warnings for southern Ontario, where power outages are expected.

In storyline, WWE made the change because Lana, Rusev's real-life wife, talked to WWE officials and refused to let Rusev compete in a Casket Match.

It's been a unusual couple of months for The Bulgarian Brute, as the rise of popularity of Rusev Day, whether it be through fans chanting 'Rusev Day!' or through rising merchandise sales, hasn't really transitioned into success in the ring.

PWInsider Elite Audio's Mike Johnson cited Rusev asking for his release prior to WrestleMania 34 as one possible reason for him being added last-minute to the U.S. Championship match.

He tweeted: "I beat #TheUndertaker for @wwe title before".

As of this post, nineteen Superstars have been confirmed for the 50-Man Royal Rumble Match, most notably Daniel Bryan and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle.
