Details on Undertaker and AJ Styles Boneyard Match

Details on Undertaker and AJ Styles Boneyard Match
WWE has yet to reveal exactly what a Boneyard match is but AJ Styles gave a couple of details on the match during his live Mixer stream.


Styles said that the Boneyard Match will not take place in the ring and there are no rules so anything goes. He also said that there would be a grave involved. Again, nothing is confirmed by WWE but this sounds like an old school Graveyard or Buried Alive Match under a different name.

"There's a reason why I think it's called a Boneyard Match," Styles said. "Because we didn't want to say cemetery or a graveyard. You know, everything that's going on, it sucks. Boneyard is slang for graveyard, it really is."

"I think it's a combination of things you thought it was, most likely. I think it's going to be that. It's different, it's going to be different," AJ said.

"You guys don't understand, you guys are the life blood of everything we do. We react to you, everything's about you. I know I've said it before, it's all about you, I wouldn't be anything without you, but it's so much more than that because we know how to react based on how you react. We know how to put stuff where it belongs based on how you will react to it. All this stuff matters. There's a lot of times, for those of you who don't know a lot, where it's called on-the-fly because of the way you're reacting. Things change in a second based on the way that you guys react, and not having that... bless their hearts, I feel for the guys who have had to have those matches without anyone there."

He continued, "The adrenaline when you're walking down that aisle to get to the ring, and you're seeing a sea of people... oh man, that adrenaline just starts going. During that match it'll get to a point to where you have tunnel vision, complete tunnel vision. There have bee a number of times where my kids and my wife have been in the front row, and I never saw them, but I see everything, you know, I just don't see one person. It's a weird kind of tunnel vision and then you get in the ring, you're going, it's awesome, you're feeling the crowd. Things don't hurt as bad, I guess I can put it that way. Being in a ring where you can hear yourself breathing, that sucks. It's not fun. So, I hope we get back to normal soon, I really do, because we need you guys. We need you."

AJ then confirmed again that the WrestleMania 36 match with Taker, which was taped earlier this week to air on either Saturday, August 4 or Sunday, August 5, will be in a graveyard setting.

"Let me just say this about The Undertaker and AJ Styles," AJ said. "I feel like AJ Styles has got this guy right where he wants him. He has baited him into a match that he can't win, and I'm talking about The Undertaker can't win,, and we're talking about a Boneyard Match, which is in a graveyard, which is wide open. Anything can happen. Think about that. AJ Styles is the bad guy, he doesn't play fair. There's that, a pretty smart play by AJ Styles if I do say so myself.

"So, let me make myself clear on the Boneyard Match. A Boneyard Match means anything can happen. It's in a graveyard and there will be a grave. Does that kind of put it into perspective? There will be a hole."

The Undertaker has wrestled several matches where the goal is to bury your opponents. Some notable Graveyard/Buried Alive Matches include his match the Mankind in 1996, Stone Cold Steve Austin in 1998 and Kane in 2010. There was at least one Graveyard Match in 2000 between Vampiro and The Demon.

As previously noted, the plan is for most of the matches to happen at the Performance Center with a few matches happening at other locations. So this confirms that Taker/Styles is one of those matches that took place outside of the ring so don’t expect spoilers to leak out before the show.
