Boneyard Match

Undertaker vs. AJ Styles

AJ Styles knows that he is one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time. He’s so damn good, in fact, that back on the Feb. 17 episode of Raw he boldly declared himself the new Mr. WrestleMania. He was humble enough to admit that he’s the greatest superstar on any roster at any time. What a swell guy.

That led to Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia, where AJ Styles had his underlings attack Rey Mysterio backstage, because this would allow him to secure the prestigious Tuwaiq Trophy in a gauntlet match. The only problem is that the Dead Man was listening to Styles’ over the top bragging earlier in the month, so he decided to chokeslam some sense into the Phenomenal One. Undertaker took Mysterio’s spot in the match, squashed Styles with one move, and pinned him without ever removing his hat or jacket. Undertaker won the prestigious Tuwaiq Trophy, and it was never seen again.

Styles was furious about the Dead Man’s appearance, so he began to talk trash about the Undertaker on Raw, and even mocked Undertaker’s classic pin technique. This led to Undertaker showing up once again to cost Styles a match, this time on Mar. 8 at Elimination Chamber.

That loss sent AJ over the edge, and so he decided to make things personal with Mark Calaway. 10 to 15 years ago, Styles might have hesitated to call the Undertaker out. But not anymore, because the Undertaker is no longer a phenom. He’s a broken down old man who lost his dignity and can barely move. The only reason Mark keeps coming back to wrestle in WWE is because his wife, Michelle McCool, is playing him like a fiddle. She gets anything that she wants, even if that means Undertaker has to keep coming back as a shell of himself to perform in WWE. Michelle is running Undertaker into the ground, and so AJ might as well help her finish the job. He’s going to make sure that Undertaker dies in the ring at WrestleMania 36.

So they signed a contract for a match at WrestleMania 36, where Undertaker beat up the Best Tag Team in the World, consisting of noted assclowns Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, all by himself, before shoving the contract in Anderson’s mouth.

Styles then said that he was sick of seeing Mark Calaway posting selfies on social media, and that he wants to fight the Dead Man from 10 years ago. That’s why this is going to be a Boneyard Match, which should be right in Undertaker’s comfort zone. It seems like the match will take place in some kind of graveyard setting. But you know, can’t say graveyard or cemetery in WWE, so Boneyard Match it is.

On the final Raw before WrestleMania, Undertaker finally responded to all of Styles’s rants about his wife. He spoke directly to Allen Jones, who knew he couldn’t hang with WWE’s top superstars 10 to 15 years ago, so that’s why Styles was content being a big fish in a small pond for so long. But Styles crossed the line by mentioning his wife, who actually does the Styles Clash better than Styles. The Dead Man is going to make AJ famous at WrestleMania, and he hopes that those assclowns Gallows and Anderson are with him, because all three of them will face the wrath of the unholy trinity. AJ Styles is going to rest in peace in the boneyard.

So, what exactly does the Unholy Trinity consist of? Will WWE use their movie magic to make it three different forms of the Undertaker? Or will he actually have two other allies by his side to fend off Styles’ pals?

You can bet there will be some wild stuff going on here, maybe even leaning into the supernatural realm, when The Phenom and The Phenomenal One do battle inside a boneyard. Someone is probably getting stuffed inside a coffin or a burial plot. And by someone, I mean AJ Styles.
