Corbin still getting pushed? Why Rusev match was changed
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/13/2018 at 04:16 PM

- In regarding to Baron Corbin being advertised in a WWE Title match against AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura at Extreme Rules, Dave Meltzer of said the following:

"It should be noted that of all the non-main event talent in WWE right now, Vince is still highest on Corbin as a future major player."

- In regards to why Rusev was pulled from the upcoming Casket match with The Undertaker, Bryan Alvarez noted the following on Wrestling Observer Live:

“There is no scandal involving Rusev, it is all storyline. Rusev is no longer in the match with The Undertaker. He has been replaced by Chris Jericho. They ran some goofy stuff on social media to I guess get people talking — which they did. Rusev I believe is going to be in the Greatest Royal Rumble so he’s still on the show.”

Alvarez continued, “The point of this is that Rusev is not quitting. He’s not leaving. He’s not getting fired. Nothing like that. They just decide Jericho vs Undertaker would be a better match even though they announced Rusev vs Undertaker before they figured that out.”

Thanks to for the quotes.
