• The Undertaker Reacts To Edge vs. Randy Orton Match At WrestleMania 36
Old School WWF/E Legend The Undertaker went live on Instagram for the first time ever yesterday to talk about WrestleMania 36.
During the stream, Undertaker had the following to say about Edge & Randy Orton’s Last Man Standing match on Night 2 of WrestleMania 36:
“It was a long match but I thought it was really good. That’s where your audience helps you, though. That match was really good.
Now, you put people out there and get their reactions, that match seems fifteen minutes shorter because all they’re working off of is pure physicality of what had been done in their issue.”
Edge vs. Orton at WrestleMania 36 lasted 36 minutes and turned out to be the second longest WrestleMania match of all time. Some fans didn’t like the match. Tap here to read what Edge had to say about those fans.
