WWE changes course, Undertaker now faces Chris Jericho in Saudi Arabia

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. Rusev is no longer in the match with The Undertaker.

This week, Rusev quickly went from having a casket match against The Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble at the King Abdullah Sports City, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia on April 27, to being removed from the match entirely and potentially leaving the company altogether.

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.

Angle competed in a tag team match with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34, which was his third bout since returning to WWE.

Phipps say she was trying to adopt a child and was facing road blocks as a single woman . "I count my blessings every day". I don't know what you think happened, but I didn't touch you inappropriately. "And this is what manifested", said Phipps.

Rusev entered WWE at a time where The Undertaker pretty much only did WrestleMania so the two of them haven't had any interaction. Although Jericho has never been a part of such an ominous showdown, WWE's first Undisputed Champion has battled in virtually every other kind of match WWE has to offer, and if his extensive résumé says anything, it's that he knows how to win when it counts. Originally, Chris Jericho was advertised for the 50-Man Royal Rumble Match but has since been removed from the list of confirmed participants.

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

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.
