AJ Styles Talks About What a Boneyard Match Is
During his recent Mixer stream, AJ Styles got into a bit of a conversation about his upcoming “Boneyard” match against The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 36. He wouldn’t provide intricate details as to the rules of the match, but he did give some insight as to what people can expect.
According to Fightful.com, Styles said when he’d first heard WWE say that’s what he and The Undertaker were doing, he wondered what it was, like most fans probably did. When he was given the details, he was excited because it is allowing them to do something different than everyone else in WWE and for the biggest show of the year.
WWE was cautious not to use the words cemetery or graveyard, considering all that’s going on in the world, but that’s essentially what this match will be — a graveyard match. “Everything that’s going on, it sucks. It’s a combination of things you thought it was, most likely,” Styles said.
In the end, Styles wouldn’t say what they filmed because he didn’t want to give anything away. All he would add was, “I’m so glad that my opponent is The Undertaker, because it’s an opportunity to have a different match.”
The interesting comments were that Styles focused on the fact he wanted to wrestle in front of fans, but we have to assume, no matter where the match was shot, there were no fans in attendance. Could he be hinting at something else where there we people around? I guess we’ll have to wait to find out.
Maybe he just didn’t want it to feel like he was wrestling in front of no one. “I feel for the guys who have had to have those matches,” he said.
