• A Pitch Was Made For Aleister Black To Get Involved In The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Match
During a recent appearance on Renee Young’s Oral Sessions podcast, former WWE Superstar Aleister Black revealed that a pitch was made for him to get involved in The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles match at WrestleMania 36.
Here’s what Black said:
“One of the cool pitches for me was that for a moment when I had that match with AJ [at Elimination Chamber 2020], one of the things leading up to WrestleMania was that during the end of my match with AJ, The Undertaker appeared and helped me and saved me from the beatdown The Good Brothers gave me.
One of the pitches was at WrestleMania, it was going to be the other way around. So, it was AJ and Taker, and one of the pitches was that towards the end of that match, the Good Brothers would come out or something to that extent, and I would be the one to help Taker.
The fact that they even considered that was like, wow! It was very cool.”
