WrestleMania is often compared as the Super Bowl of wrestling and fans eagerly wait to see it the show of immortals throughout the year. It is the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history. It takes place every year between mid-March to mid-April. Also, it is well documented fact that Vince McMahon created WrestleMania. The main aim was to have one thing best represents his past, it is creating such an amazing event each and every year. It is “his baby.” WrestleMania came into existence on March 31, 1985 and took place in the iconic Madison Square Garden.
Over the years the popularity of WrestleMania has grown with each year even though the WWE’s own popularity has wavered in recent times. This year WrestleMania had to take place at Raymond James Stadium, Orlando but had to shift the venue due the coronavirus outbreak. This year the event will take to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. WWE released a statement, “In coordination with local partners and government officials, WrestleMania and all related events in Tampa Bay will not take place. However, WrestleMania will still stream live on Sunday, April 5 at 7 pm ET on WWE Network and be available on pay-per-view. Only essential personnel will be on the closed set at WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Florida to produce WrestleMania.”
There is no WWE talent past and present who is more synonymous with WrestleMania than ‘The Undertaker’. The Undertaker WrestleMania streak is one thing which is difficult to be never be matched again and highly regarded storylines in WWE. He always brought “A” game during WrestleMania and his matches were one of the most anticipated of the night.
The Wrestlemania 36 was also special for the fans as long-term WWE legend The Undertaker is back to entertain the fans this year. He didn’t disappoint by defeating AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36 proved that the Phenomenal One is no match for the ‘Deadman.’ The match was a unique as the world witnessed a Boneyard Match on Night 1 of WrestleMania 36 and was truly cinematic experience. The Phenom once again stole the show at the grandest stage of them all. Though the match came at the time when the world is battling coronavirus pandemic, both the superstar entertaining show for those watching at home.
The match started with the bang as Styles arrived at a foreboding cemetery in a hearse, rising from a casket in making fun of the legends. On the other hand, The Undertaker revived his American Badass avatar and rode in his motorcycle (with Metallica playing over the video), magic images of days gone by. The Phenom had not only had to fight with Aj Styles but also with The O.C. aka The Club members Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, who introduced hooded “druids”, getting involved in the brawl. There was one phase when Th Taker fans felt that he will lose the match but soon Deadman used his mystique to eerily appear behind Styles and halt his strategies.
Boneyard Match wasn’t a traditional match but it was nothing new for Undertaker who has over the years had wrestled in matches like first ever Casket Match, Boiler Room Brawl, Buried Alive Match, Inferno Match, Hell in a Cell, Biker Chain Match and Last Ride Match. He isn’t not only trumped every time nut hold impressive record of being the pioneer of such legendary matches. During the feud Styles has been disrespectfully numerous times to The Undertaker’s own wife, Michelle McCool and former Divas Champion.
Post victory of her took to social media to congratulate her husband victory and has a special to the Phenomenal One. She wrote “#Wrestlemania night #2 reminds me that I didn’t congrat the @wwe superstars from night 1! Kudos to all for entertaining the world during this crazy time! #grateful. Now @ajstylesp1 …it’s funny how quickly you forgot my name when my husband @undertaker asked! You had it in your mouth for weeks on end! In case you forgot, its $McCool, remember!💜#assclown”
By virtue of his win, The Phenom WrestleMania record stand at 24-2, with Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are only Superstars to beat him on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
The question remains If this was his last time at WrestleMania 36 it was an incredible way to finish his Hall of Fame worthy career.
