• Rusev Reveals Why He Was Put Back Into A Match With The Undertaker At The Greatest Royal Rumble

During a recent interview with Inside the Ropes, SmackDown Live star Rusev revealed the person who was the reason behind WWE adding him back into The Undertaker match and taking out Chris Jericho from that match at the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Below is what Rusev said:

“Vince told me one time, you know ‘you’re gonna work The Undertaker in Saudi Arabia,’ and I laughed at him because I thought he was joking. I’m like, ‘whatever,’ and he’s like, ‘it’s gonna be a casket match.’ I completely laughed at him and was like, ‘yeah and I’m winning, right?’ He was like, ‘alight I’ll talk to you later.’

He left and I still completely thought it was a joke and there were other people in the room and they thought that I was being an asshole. I was like ‘he was joking with me,’ and he was like, ‘no, it’s booked.’ The next day there was a big advertisement ‘Rusev vs The Undertaker’ I was like, ‘oh my god… what a… so stupid

Then they took me out because we’re kinda going a different direction. “We’re kinda doing the good guy thing” and [McMahon] thought I shouldn’t be buried if I was a good guy. Then he took me out and he put in Jericho. Then The Prince of Saudi Arabia called and said, ‘no.’ He wanted to see Rusev in that match so Jericho was out again and they added me back to it. I was back in the match and the match was great. Just going out there and wrestling a true legend and learning a lot from him it was a great opportunity.
