That’s some fast building. WrestleMania 36 has come and gone and that means there are a lot of memories. Some of them could even move all the way up to the level of WrestleMania Moments and that is what WWE will remember more than anything else. Some of the matches that took place were certainly interesting, though there was one that went above the rest of them.
The first night of WrestleMania 36 was headlined by the Boneyard Match between Undertaker and AJ Styles. The big question coming into the match was “what is a Boneyard Match” as it wasn’t entirely clear. However, we would eventually find out that it was a cinematic match in the vein of the Final Deletion. It was one of the most unique matches WWE has ever presented and now we know a bit more about the whole thing.
Whatculture has revealed a variety of details about the Boneyard Match:
• The graveyard set was originally just planned for a single promo but was set up so well that it was eventually used as the centerpiece of the entire match.
• The trash talk during the match was improvised, with Undertaker and Styles getting permission to go out of the box a bit with what they said.
• The cut on Undertaker’s arm was legitimate but the filming continued as it made things a little bit better.
There is no word on when or if WWE will be doing another Boneyard Match or anything similar, though the match has received quite a bit of praise from various wrestlers.
The match was a spectacle. Check out some of the insanity:
Opinion: I know the match is going to be rather divisive on a lot of fronts but at the same time, this is something that WWE put a lot of effort into. You can see that they took their time and thought out a bunch of stuff, but at the same time they also let in some fresh thoughts to make the whole thing better. I’m not sure how well it would work again, but it was a heck of a lot of fun this time around.
