The Undertaker will wrestle for the second time this year at Saudi Arabia’s Greatest Royal Rumble in a casket match with SmackDown Live! favourite Rusev, according to reports from Middle East news giant The National.
‘The Deadman’ defeated John Cena in under three minutes at WrestleMania 34 in a crowd-pleasing response to his dispiriting and overwrought ‘Show Of Shows’ finale with Roman Reigns a year earlier. ‘The Bulgarian Brute’ had a less fortuitous evening when he failed to score victory in United States Title fatal four-way, but will look to bounce back from the loss with a strong showing against the company icon.
Their contest joins a stacked card at Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City Stadium on April 27th headlined by the eponymous 50-man Battle Royal and a Universal Title WrestleMania rematch between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns.
A John Cena/Triple H clash will join six additional title matches on a loaded undercard in front of potential crowd of around 62,000 people.
