It took months for The Undertaker to answer John Cena’s challenge to have a match at WrestleMania. While many of us were wondering whether or not this was the last match of the Deadman, it turned out Taker’s next match would happen in a little over two weeks.

WWE revealed that The Undertaker will be at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia and will take on Rusev in a Casket Match on April 27, coincidentally on Rusev Day. The Casket Match is a very important match to The Undertaker as he has competed in many of them over the years. To win, the first person to put their opponent in the casket and close the lid will be the winner.

The card is already stacked with a 50-man Royal Rumble, a Steel Cage Match for the Universal Championship, a four-man Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship and John Cena vs. Triple H along with all the titles being defended.

I’m not sure how much Saudi Arabia paid to have this event but they are sure going all out. At least those in the United States will get to see this on WWE Network although you may need to watch from work since it’ll be on a Friday at noon. Either way, it sounds like this will be a stunning event.
