Hearing the truth from the horse’s mouth always give light to the situation. Rusev gives his side of the story of what happened for the match against Undertaker at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
Bury Me Softly…
With news of the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia that took place last April, one of the many matches on the card included Rusev vs Undertaker in a casket match.
Rusev took it upon himself to tweet the following:
Bury me softly, Brother https://t.co/IWnBvL20Ez

Speculation ran wild and WWE officials felt it was a disrespect to the deadman himself. WWE even went as far as to pull Rusev from the card and replace him with Chris Jericho.
Rusev would later be put back on the card to face Undertaker and would lose to the deadman in the casket match.
The Ride Along Truth
In a recent episode of Ride Along on the WWE Network, Rusev explains the whole predicament:
It seems that not only did Rusev produce a disrespectable tweet, he laughed in the Chairman’s face once he learned about the news.
The prince of Saudi Arabia wasn’t going to have it, so he insisted that Rusev be reinserted in the match and thus we got Undertaker’s second win of 2018.
