WWE’s Wrestlemania 36 managed to shock us with one unexpected result in the form of Goldberg vs Braun Strowman’s match. We saw Strowman walking out as the Universal Champion. But the best of the night was reserved for the last- The Undertaker vs AJ Styles. The match which was highly anticipated by pro-wrestling fans managed to live up the hype.
More than the concept of the Boneyard match, everyone was excited to see The Undertaker and AJ Styles finishing off their rivalry with mere wrestling skills as two are amongst the best of all time. Firstly talking about the concept, as reported earlier, the match took place in a graveyard with a similar concept of Buried Alive match.
Apart from the match, the entrance of the deadman grabbed all the attention as we saw him getting back into the old badass avatar. He came riding a motorbike. AJ challenged him by saying the era of the old man is finished and is no more respected. As expected, we got to see some amazing action by both the men. Despite the absence of audiences’ chants, the contest between the two gave us enough chills.
With everything going well, The Undertaker was distracted by AJ Styles’ ‘bodyguards’ Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. The deadman gets encircled by six unknown faces, as per AJ’s plan but he fights them out. The match continues on some rooftop, with the veteran delivering a tombstone piledriver to one of the bodyguards but gets hit from a back by AJ. The phenomenal puts the deadman into the grave but wait, it’s not over, as the deadman, out of the blues, escapes from the pit.
We got to see a rare sequence, where The Undertaker referred AJ as a tough man, a good competitor and AJ apologizing. By lending some great words and a respectful hug, The Undertaker sums it up by putting AJ into the pit. A victory for the deadman!
So here’s how the first half of Wrestlemania concluded! Stay tuned for more updates.
