WWE announced a change to the previously advertised Undertaker vs. Rusev casket match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. The new match features Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho in a casket match. Read the official announcement at WWE.com.
Powell’s POV: The new match is far more appealing in my book. There’s still no obvious reason for the casket match stipulation, but it’s a higher profile match that pits Taker against the versatile Jericho, whereas the old match had Taker facing Rusev at a time when fans have embraced Rusev as a babyface regardless of how the company is positioning him.
