Rusev admits Undertaker's one of the GOATs, and has home-field advantage for their CASKET MATCH. but says he ain't sweatin' it since "Rusev Day" is equally legendary.

The Casket Match undoubtedly belongs to The Undertaker, as The Demon of Death Valley has claimed victory in several of these harrowing contests, wherein a Superstar only wins when he gets his opponent into the casket and closes the lid.

As of Thursday (April 12) this week, the former WWE world heavyweight champion had not yet agreed to terms on a new contract with WWE, but both sides are said to still be in negotiations for a deal.

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.


"Originally, the Casket Match was to be between The Deadman and Rusev".

Y2J was announced as a replacement for Rusev in an out of nowhere statement by WWE.

"He is a legend in the WWE".

"Undertaker is a little bit in the past", Rusev told TMZ Sports at The Henry in WeHo.


"It's Rusev Day, you know?"

"I'll beat him so bad, maybe it's his last fight, yeah".

-The 50-man Greatest Royal Rumble match (Entrants): Daniel Bryan, Kane, Big Show, Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt, Kurt Angle, Baron Corbin, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Chris Jericho, Apollo, Shelton Benjamin, Sin Cara, Elias, Chad Gable, Goldust, Titus O'Neil, Mojo Rawley, Dolph Ziggler.

In a stunning turn of events, WWE has announced a change in Undertaker's match at the Greatest Royal Rumble which will take place later this month.
