This SmackDown star continues to tease The Deadman.
The sports entertainment company has already announced that Taker would be wrestling Rusev in a Casket Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event.
The WWE Greatest Royal Rumble event takes place on Friday, April 27, 2018 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the King Abdullah International Stadium and will air on the WWE Network with a special start time of 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT with the event airing one hour later. Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon continued to change his mind about who the future WWE Hall of Famer would wrestle at this event.
At first, it was Rusev then it was Chris Jericho then it was Rusev once again.
Rusev signed with WWE in September of 2010 and was assigned to WWE's Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) developmental territory in Tampa, Florida, where he adopted the ring name Alexander Rusev.
Lana debuted on the October 23, 2013 episode of NXT by scouting Alexander Rusev. The following month, WWE put her as Rusev’s manager on television. They had a short run while in the developmental brand.
Lana made her main roster debut on the January 31 episode of SmackDown where she and Rusev in the following weeks appeared in a series of self-promotional videos and speeches.
Fast forward to May of that year; they made their television debut. WWE has kept both Rusev and Lana strong on television.
Rusev would end up winning the United States Title while with her.
Fast forward, WWE did a breakup angle after Lana quit on Rusev’s behalf during an I Quit Match with John Cena at the Payback PPV event in 2015. There was a brief storyline where Lana was aligned with Dolph Ziggler against Rusev.
In October of that year, TMZ reported that Lana had gotten engaged to Rusev, which Lana confirmed.
This led to Lana making her return to WWE TV as a villainess and by Rusev’s side. WWE then took her off of TV until February of 2016 where she was pushed as a singles star.
There is a trend here. When Lana and Rusev are together, they have success, but when separated, not so much.
Now, Rusev is paired with Aiden English. Rusev, who is on his way to the Greatest Royal Rumble event, decided to send out this tweet to Taker about the upcoming Casket Match:
