I hope they didn’t get rid of the old posters. Next Friday, WWE will be airing the Greatest Royal Rumble. At the moment, the card will feature seven title matches, a special match between Triple H and John Cena and a casket match with the Undertaker. However, the question is who he’ll be facing. When the match was originally announced, Undertaker was scheduled to face Rusev. Since then though, Rusev was swapped out for Chris Jericho. Now, we have another change announced.
Maybe they should do this again.
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 !

Opinion: Well ok then. There’s not much of a reason to switch Rusev and Jericho out but at the end of the day, there’s no way Undertaker is losing here anyway. Undertaker is a bigger star than either Rusev or Jericho so losing to him is hardly a big downgrade. Rusev being on the show makes more sense if you look at it as a regular show, but Jericho is a far bigger deal in the grand scheme of things. Having him on the show could draw in some extra eyes, certainly more than Rusev is likely to do anyway. Hopefully the match winds up being good though, which is what matters most.
Who do you want to see in the match? Will Rusev get back to where he used to be on the card? Let us know in the comments below.
