• The Undertaker Reveals The Original Plan For WrestleMania 36
The final feud of The Undertaker’s legendary career was against AJ Styles in 2020.
It culminated with a Boneyard Match in the main event of WrestleMania 36 – Night 1, which The Undertaker won.
The Deadman brought back his biker “American Badass / Big Evil” character for this match.
Undertaker retired after this match, with a final WrestleMania record of 25-2.
During a recent interview with SHAK Wrestling, Undertaker revealed that the original plan was for this match to take place in the ring, under normal rules, but plans changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the event being moved to the WWE Performance Center with 0 fans in attendance.
Below is what The Phenom said:
“It was special because I had always wanted to work with AJ.
Although the original plan was to do it in a ring in a more conventional manner, to be able to share such a unique match, and go out with a positive, I think it was the best-case scenario for me.
I don’t know if the match had been in a wrestling ring, although I was in great shape, and felt really good, and motivated. I think everything worked out the way that it should.
I left on an extremely high note, I was personally satisfied. That was what I was searching for those last few years. That one match that I could hang my hat on and say, ‘I’m done, I’m good, it’s time to go home.’”
In 2020, Stephanie McMahon revealed that the original plan for this match was for Metallica to perform “Now That We’re Dead” (the song Undertaker used for his entrance on a Motorcycle in the Boneyard Match) live for The Undertaker’s entrance to the ring at the Raymond James Stadium.
