• Stephanie McMahon Reveals Original Plan For The Undertaker’s Entrance At WrestleMania 36
The Undertaker faced off against AJ Styles in a Boneyard match at WrestleMania earlier this year. Taker used The American Badass gimmick and got a pretty long entrance with the theme song ‘Now That We’re Dead’ composed by Metallica.
While speaking on a media call on Wednesday morning, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer, Stephanie McMahon, revealed that Metallica was supposed to be a part of Undertaker’s WrestleMania 36 entrance by performing live at the Raymond James Stadium.
However, the entrance got scrapped due to the event being relocated to the Performance Center because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
McMahon said that Metallica still wanted to remain a part of Taker’s entrance after the changes were made.
When asked about the return of fans to WWE events, she said it would happen ‘sooner than later’.
