I always thought that there should have been a “Buried Alive” match at a Wrestlemania. There still could be one, but the problem with this match is it’s truly terrifying. The purpose of the match is to bury your opponent six feet under with literal dirt. It’s brutal, dirty, and really intense to take on The Deadman in this scenario.
The last time we saw a “Buried Alive” match was at Bragging Rights 2010 with Kane challenging Undertaker. The feud between brothers had reached an apex regarding sibling rivalry and the fight to be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. We haven’t seen this match again since and it’s been over five years.
We haven’t seen this match again since and it’s been over five years. This brings up the question of whether or not WWE’s strict PG programming will ever allow us to see another “Buried Alive” match in WWE?
Another “Buried Alive” match is going to be really hard to pull off with the PG rating of WWE’s content, but the fact that The Undertaker isn’t around as often is also going to make it that much more difficult. It would be a strange match to pull off without him, but even if the stars aligned, how would WWE pull it off under PG rules?
The whole point of the match originally was the brutality of having to bury your opponent with dirt by the shovelful. That’s a level of violence that just doesn’t do anymore. As great as something like a Bray Wyatt vs. Undertaker “Buried Alive” match could be; we may have seen our last in WWE history.
