Fans were worried that one of the most anticipated wrestling championships of the year, the WWE Wrestlemania might be postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the event was actually pre-taped from the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando, Florida.
The first night of the two-night extravaganza surpassed the expectations of everyone with one of the most bizarre yet entertaining matches in WWE history – The Boneyard Match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles.
A “cinematic experience” as anticipated, the match was the main event of the night, a mystery for all. Both the players entered in style- Undertaker arrived for the “match” on a motorcycle with Metallica playing in the background and AJ Styles made an elaborate entrance at the cemetery, revealed as in a coffin in the back. The match soon turned into a no-rules brawl in which Undertaker was seen battling Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows- as well as hooded “druids” in the graveyard then in a barn and then at the barn’s rooftop. Even though Styles, at a point, had Undertaker in an open grave, but Undertaker somehow materialised behind him amazing everyone, including Styles. There onwards, Undertaker practically brutalised Styles making him apologize and beg for mercy. Listening to Syles’ pleas to not bury him, Taker replied, “I’m not going to bury you, you just fought your ass off. You’re good, brother.” but then turns and kicks him into the grave. The camera panned to Styles’ hand coming out from the grave he was buried in and Undertaker was declared the winner.
Well, to say the least, the match was like something out of a movie and a total success for the WWE Universe just for the entertainment it provided.
