After a dominating win over John Cena at the grandest stage of all, the WWE Universe did not expect the Undertaker to wrestlen another game for at least a year. However, it was announced that The Phenom would hit Rusev during the upcoming Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia in a casket match. After a short time, WWE officials replaced Rusev with Chris Jericho and many fans wanted to know why.
The WWE Universe challenged the booking change, but Jericho vs Undertaker was an exciting match for the event. A few days later, WWE officials decided to cancel their match and return to Rusev's original plan against Undertaker. It was a confusing situation, but BodySlam.net reports that Rusev was originally taken out of the game because the powers were worried he had offended the Undertaker.
After the Bulgarian Brute was announced The Casket Match, he spoke to TMZ and rubbed several WWE officials in the wrong direction with his comments about the "Undertaker" being "old" and "burying him ". Afterwards, Michelle McCool and Lana talked to social media about the situation, which provoked a controversy that WWE officials did not want. Jericho was chosen as a replacement until the Undertaker clarified that he was not offended at all. As a result of Russev, The Deadman will wrestle in a coffin match as originally planned.
Initially, the WWE Universe was not thrilled with Rusev, who competed in a casket match against The Phenom after the game fell against John Cena at WrestleMania 34 . It has been reported that Undertaker's game with Cena was so brief because The Deadman was unable to win a full match and is expected to be extremely limited against Rusev, angering many fans, the Rusev do not want to hit a big loss. However, some fans were upset when he was replaced by Chris Jericho. It was a win-win situation.
The Bulgarian bat is presented at one of the biggest shows of the year against Undertaker. The company is driving Saudi Arabia forward to expand the WWE audience. It's a great place for Rusev, especially with his "Rusev Day" gimmick, which is so popular in the WWE Universe. Although it is basically a guarantee that he will lose to The Deadman, this is a big stamp of approval for the powerful. He will also do a great favor to Undertaker, who could later turn Rusev into bigger things.
