WWE Superstar Lana has again made a curious post on social media, perhaps implying yet another change to the card for the Greatest Royal Rumble.
In her Tweet, the Ravishing Russian stated:
‘After much thought, I have notified WWE officials that I have changed my mind. [Rusev] will celebrate
#RusevDay by burying The Undertaker in the sands of Saudi Arabi and will win the Casket Match at #WWEGRR! #RusevCrush! Have a Happy Rusev Day!’
After much thought, I have notified @WWE officials that I have changed my mind. @RusevBUL will celebrate #RusevDay by burying The Undertaker in the sands of Saudi Arabi and will win the Casket Match at #WWEGRR ! #RusevCrush ! Have a Happy Rusev Day !

This news comes on the heels of WWE appearing to change their original plans for Undertaker’s match in Saudi Arabia. He was indeed scheduled to face Rusev, but this plan was apparently scrapped last week, with Chris Jericho officially inserted in Rusev’s place.
Jericho has since been promoting the bout with ‘Taker, declaring himself the king of the stipulation (despite never having taken part in a casket match in his entire career).
Were it to go ahead, this would be Y2J’s first WWE match since returning from his short stint in New Japan Pro Wrestling – a shocking move which culminated in a no DQ loss to Kenny Omega at Wrestle Kingdom 12.
Jericho has since been seen on WWE TV, most notably appearing in a backstage segment at the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw. However, he is yet to wrestle a match since returning.
Lana’s post seems to imply that the original plan is back in place, a curious decision amidst rumours of a falling out between Rusev and WWE. The Bulgarian Superstar recently removed all mention of WWE from his Twitter profile, but many have speculated that the entire incident is a work.
WWE have yet to make any official announcement regarding Undertaker’s opponent in Saudi Arabia.
