WWE just announced that Rusev has been added back to the Casket Match against The Undertaker at WWE's Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia. As we've noted, Rusev was replaced by Chris Jericho earlier this month and the storyline for the replacement was that Lana was not going to allow her husband to compete in a Casket Match. Lana made the following tweet today before WWE announced the latest change for the match:
In other news on the big event from Saudi Arabia, which will air live on the WWE Network, WWE currently has the following 20 Superstars confirmed for the 50-man Royal Rumble match on their website: Daniel Bryan, Braun Strowman, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Elias, Baron Corbin, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Bray Wyatt, Kane, Apollo, Titus O'Neil, Shelton Benjamin, Chad Gable, Sin Cara, Goldust, Mojo Rawley, Dolph Ziggler and Rusev.
There's no word yet on if Rusev will still be competing in the match but Jericho will likely be re-added to the match once they update their listings.
It looks like some of the Superstars already booked for singles matches at the event could be working the Rumble main event too because of the need for 50 competitors. A new WWE En Espanol video has the following Superstars on a graphic for the match: Titus O'Neil, Chad Gable, Mojo Rawley, Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Elias, Apollo, Kurt Angle, Shinsuke Nakamura, Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Big Show, Bray Wyatt, Kane, Baron Corbin, Tye Dillinger, Shelton Benjamin, Triple H, Randy Orton, Zack Ryder, Chris Jericho, Sin Cara, Braun Strowman and WWE Champion AJ Styles.
