Powell’s POV: WWE replaced Rusev with Chris Jericho and is now back to Rusev as Undertaker’s opponent in the casket match against Undertaker. The story they are going with his that Lana was leery of the match, but has since changed her mind and signed of on her husband being in the casket match. WWE also added the U.S. Championship match on Raw. The Greatest Royal Rumble will be streamed live in North America at 11 a.m. CT (noon ET, 9 a.m. PT) on WWE Network. I will have live coverage as the show airs, but I will avoid listing spoilers in our headlines that day for the courtesy of fans who have to watch the show on delay.
