The ongoing story as to who The Undertaker will wrestle at the next WWE pay-per-view event has been interesting to say the least.
Originally, the sports entertainment company announced that Taker would be wrestling Rusev in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
However, all that changed last when it was revealed that Chris Jericho would be replacing Rusev to take on the deadman at the upcoming event.
Moving along to Monday afternoon, WWE announced that Rusev would indeed face The Undertaker at this upcoming event.
It’s been odd to say the least. Jericho has done it all under the sports entertainment banner. He has been under contract with the sports entertainment company off and on since 1999.
Jericho is a six-time world champion, having won the WWE Championship once, the WCW/World Championship twice, and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship three times.
He is also a record nine-time Intercontinental Champion. Jericho is the first Undisputed WWE Champion, and thus the final holder of the World Championship (formerly the WCW World Heavyweight Championship), having won and unified the WWE and World titles by defeating Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock on the same night in 2001.
He is also the ninth Triple Crown Champion, as well as the fourth Grand Slam Champion in WWE history.
Rusev thought it was a great idea to troll the former WWE champion in a post on his official Twitter account, which you can see here:
