Chris Jericho Replacing Rusev In Match With The Undertaker

WWE has switched Rusev out for Chris Jericho. 

Earlier this week, WWE advertised a Casket Match between the Undertaker and Rusev at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. But now, Chris Jericho who had been announced for the event has been put in the place of Rusev. The match will still be a Casket Match. 

Vince McMahon Needed "Filtered" By WWE Creative Assistants

The WWE said the match was changed after Lana refused to let her husband compete in a match with that stipulation which she expressed in the following tweet. 

This will be Chris Jericho's first Casket Match. WWE has also scheduled appearances from Triple H, Daniel Bryan, and Big Show for the event and there are reports of Rey Mysterio Jr showing up. 

Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage for the Greatest Royal Rumble on April 27th.
