Rusev v Undertaker is back on
Rusev v Undertaker is back on

What's the story?

It was previously announced that Rusev had been taken out of his match against The Undertaker at next week's Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia and replaced by Chris Jericho, but after Lana's recent endorsement for her husband, it seems that the company has had a change of heart.

In case you didn't know...

Rusev recently removed all links to WWE from his Twitter and Instagram profiles and made many fans question whether or not Rusev was done with the company after it was revealed that he had been replaced by Jericho in his casket match with The Undertaker next Friday night.

Rusev also stated that he would "miss" Aiden English when he commented on one of Aiden's recent Instagram updates, which made many fans believe that Rusev was walking away from the company, but it seems that they could have all been tricked by The Bulgarian Brute.

The heart of the matter

Lana recently updated her Twitter to state that she had spoken to WWE officials and that Rusev would be facing The Undertaker at The Greatest Royal Rumble.

It seems that Lana must have been quite convincing in this meeting since the company recently revealed that Rusev will once again be facing The Deadman in a casket match next week.

What's next?

Rusev will be present on this week's episode of SmackDown Live tomorrow night and could reveal more about the current situation surrounding his match with The Undertaker.

Author's take

This is definitely a strange situation since Chris Jericho was seemingly prepared to face The Undertaker next week and Rusev looked to have one foot out the door. It will definitely be interesting to see if Rusev or Lana comment on the situation on WWE TV this week since many fans are confused as to what is actually happening between Rusev and WWE right now.
