On the latest edition of WWE Ride Along, Rusev explained why he was initially pulled from the Greatest Royal Rumble casket match with the Undertaker. Here was the exchange he had with Aiden English courtesy of WrestlingNews.co:
Rusev: “Remember when Vince saw me – I’m gonna face The Undertaker and I laughed at him?”
English: “You just laughed in the chairman’s face [for] one of the biggest matches of your career.”
Rusev: “And what I get for it? I got pulled out. And then the Prince called. ‘you told me Rusev Day is coming to town baby.'”
Chris Jericho had recently stated that the Prince of Saudi Arabia asked for Rusev in the match and that's why Rusev was added back to the match.
