wife Lana publicly campaigning on Twitter for Rusev to be pulled from the match as she anxious for his safety.
WWE announced Monday that Lesnar had re-signed, but the company didn't provide any specifics regarding the length of his new contract.
"Originally, the Casket Match was to be between The Deadman and Rusev". They simply decided Jericho vs Undertaker would be a better match even though they announced Rusev vs Undertaker before they came to that conclusion. Although Jericho has never been a part of such an ominous showdown, WWE's first Undisputed Champion has battled in virtually every other kind of match WWE has to offer, and if his extensive résumé says anything, it's that he knows how to win when it counts.
"I've never had a Casket Match before, I've never been buried before".
He tweeted: "I beat #TheUndertaker for @wwe title before".
The Bulgarian Brute though will not be going face-to-face with Undertaker.
WWE confirmed to Newsweek that Rusev will take Jericho's spot in the 50-man Royal Rumble match.
The Undertaker just smashed John Cena at WrestleMania, but his next opponent - and his smokin' hot wife - say he's gonna make the Deadman REST. IN.
