Did WWE Pull Y2J From Casket Match Due to NJPW?

Prior to the WWE Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, The Undertaker’s Casket Match underwent several odd changes as Rusev was initially announced as ‘Taker’s opponent, before being replaced by Chris Jericho. A second change was made days later when WWE announced Rusev would indeed face Undertaker as originally planned.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, prior to Greatest Royal Rumble, and as a courtesy to WWE, Jericho informed Vince McMahon that he planned to return to NJPW in Fukuoka and work a match at Dominion in June.
