The Undertaker def. Rusev in a Casket Match

The Undertaker def. Rusev in a Casket Match

JEDDAH, SAUDI ARABIA — As it turns out, Lana should have trusted her first instinct, after all.

After initially refusing to allow Rusev to face The Undertaker in a Casket Match, The Ravishing Russian changed her mind weeks ago, and Rusev added fuel to the fire earlier today, tweeting that he would bury The Deadman in Jeddah. That brash decision led to a disastrous Rusev Day for The Super Athlete, as he fell to The Undertaker in the reaper’s first Casket Match in a decade.

It’s hard to fathom a more daunting scenario than battling The Phenom in his specialty match, where the only way to win is by incapacitating your opponent to the point you can place him in a casket and shut the lid. As such, it’s little surprise that Rusev was reluctant to lock horns, as he spent the first moments stalling outside the ring. The Undertaker wasn’t ready to let him off easy, giving chase and unleashing his trademark haymakers.

Coming off his dominant win against John Cena earlier this month at WrestleMania 34, The Undertaker was in vintage form before the capacity crowd inside the King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, hitting Old School and leg-dropping Rusev on the apron. To his credit, Rusev steadied his nerves as the battle raged on. Aiden English thwarted The Deadman’s first attempt to trap Rusev in the casket, and it gave The Super Athlete an opportunity to fight back. He even downed The Demon from Death Valley with the Accolade and called on the referee to open the casket. By the time he turned around, however, The Deadman had risen, and after a brutal exchange of strikes, The Undertaker chokeslammed Rusev and rolled him into the casket.

English again tried to prevent The Undertaker from finishing the job, but he was rewarded with a chokeslam of his own, as well as a Tombstone. For good measure, The Undertaker then placed English into the casket beside Rusev and shut the lid, cementing his victory. Rusev Day or not, The Phenom would not be beaten at his own game, and at WWE’s historic Greatest Royal Rumble event, The Undertaker’s graveyard added a new headstone.
