WWE recently announced that The Undertaker would be facing Rusev in a casket match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event on April 27, but Rusev has been pulled from the match and replaced by Chris Jericho. According to WWE.com, the official explanation regarding the change is that Lana told WWE officials to change the match because she refuses to let Rusev wrestle in a casket match.
All over the world, little boys and girls are celebrating #RusevDay, they smile for the greatest Superstar ever ! I’ve already spoke with @WWE officials to change that match because I REFUSE to let my husband @RusevBUL compete in a Casket Match at #WWEGRR! Happy #RusevDay
