• The Undertaker Went Live On Instagram To Talk About His WrestleMania 36 Match, Says It Was His Idea To Bring Back American Badass, Put Over AJ Styles Big Time
Old School WWF/E Legend The Undertaker went live on Instagram for the first time ever yesterday to talk about WrestleMania 36, AJ Styles, return of his American Badass gimmick & more.
Below are the highlights (credit: awrestlinghistorian):
– He is a big supporter of the Second Amendment and showed off his gun collection.
– Said it was bizarre having an empty WrestleMania.
– He wanted to have the match with AJ Styles in front of a crowd, but going off site made him proud given the circumstances. Said it’s a Buried Alive match as far as he was concerned.
– He sees more movie matches happening, but needs the right people in it.
– Said AJ Styles can get a 4 star match with a broom.
– Going back to American Badass was his idea, especially since Styles made the feud personal. It wouldn’t have worked if he was The Phenom.
