In a recent interview with Variety, legendary WWE superstar The Undertaker discussed several topics, including the Boneyard Match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36.
“We got really lucky in that, I think the world of AJ, not only professionally, but personally, I just didn’t know if I had enough gas in the tank to give him what he was expecting. With all the negative aspects of what happened, we got to do something so unique and so innovative, it was like a mini-movie.
I think there will probably be more matches in the future shot like that, not on every card, but with those special matches, I think they’re really on to something, it’s so different from what you normally see and so different from the regular product.
I was very fortunate to be able to do that with someone of AJ Styles’ caliber and then all the talent that was there production-wise, I was very happy with how that turned out, it showcased what I do best, I’m a storyteller, that’s what I believe wrestling matches are, they’re stories. When it’s done right, you tell a great story and I think we told a great story, to me, that’s a good night’s work.”
