Jericho To Make WWE Return In 'Casket Match' Against Undertaker

Jericho To Make WWE Return In 'Casket Match' Against Undertaker

The post Jericho To Make WWE Return In "Casket Match" Against Undertaker appeared first on Complete Sports Nigeria.

Jericho, 47, will replace Rusev to face the Dead Man in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia in a fortnight.

Rusev entered WWE at a time where The Undertaker pretty much only did WrestleMania so the two of them haven't had any interaction.

WWE.com reported on Wednesday the storyline reason for the change was Rusev's wife Lana publicly campaigning on Twitter for Rusev to be pulled from the match as she anxious for his safety. 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.

It's been a odd couple of months for The Bulgarian Brute, as the rise of popularity of Rusev Day, whether it be through fans chanting 'Rusev Day!' or through rising merchandise sales, hasn't really transitioned into success in the ring.

Whether or not the interview, or Rusev's tweet following the announcement where he wrote "Bury me softly, Brother", resulted in the former United States Champion getting yanked from the match remains to be seen.

But in the end, putting Chris Jericho in this match would be a great nostalgia match for Attitude Era fans who grew up watching people like Y2J and Taker.

The incredible event, scheduled for April 27 in Jeddah is growing into one of the biggest WWE events of all time.

These "walk-ins" are not yet "walk outs", though organizers have indicated that would be a looming possibility. Organizers of the Arizona teacher movement, like Karvelis, don't think the governor's actions match his words.
