Final Wednesday, WWE introduced that Rusev could be taking over the Undertaker in a Casket Match on the GRR. (Nonetheless love that acronym!) Rusev tweeted concerning the match in a particularly tongue-in-cheek vogue, then appeared in a TMZ video with a particularly deceptive title speaking concerning the match.
The subsequent day, WWE introduced that Undertaker’s new opponent could be Chris Jericho in one other dream matchup, which might be one in every of solely a handful of instances, ever, that Jericho and the Lifeless Man have confronted off.
BUT WAIT! On Monday, WWE introduced that the Rusev-Undertaker casket match could be on as soon as once more.
That is, in fact, all extraordinarily bizarre. And the weirdness was compounded by the truth that Rusev eliminated all mentions of WWE from his social media profiles. That fed into rampant hypothesis, as rumors flew earlier than WrestleMania 34 that Rusev was sad about how the corporate was utilizing him, and that he might have requested for his launch.

(Transcript through Wrestling Inc.)
“I used to be stunned that Rusev tweeted this as a result of he’s labored there lengthy sufficient. I’m not stunned if — possibly, that is simply me speculating — simply possibly it’s a scenario the place WWE obtained ticked off by his tweet. Mainly saying, ‘Nicely, what’s that?’ Mainly stooging off that you simply’re gonna lose the match. You’re mainly saying, you realize, bury me softly, it’s a Casket Match, so that you’re mainly saying that you simply’re doing the job.
“I can see [WWE] getting ticked off from that. Yeah, I imply, all people and their mom most likely is aware of that nobody’s beating The Undertaker proper now, and that’s no disrespect to Rusev, however you realize it’s simply not gonna occur. However nonetheless I obtained a humorous feeling that [the tweet] may need ticked them off.”
It’s not a horrible principle! And there’s nonetheless no telling whether or not this Rusev/Undertaker match will nonetheless really go down as at present marketed, or maybe possibly WWE feels having Rusev lose a really brief casket match in lopsided vogue is actually the very best punishment for his supposed transgression. All we all know is, we must always get pleasure from each Rusev Day to the fullest, whereas they final.
