With two weeks remaining for WrestleMania 36, the WWE is pulling out all the stops to ensure that the event is a success with or without crowd with AJ Styles challenging The Undertaker to a “Boneyard Match”. There is no surety yet what sort of stipulation will the match hold but rest assured, it will be something the Undertaker prefers.

Styles continued to bury Taker with the mic, taking a shot at his latest “Save The Tiger” message, and wondering where The Deadman has vanished. The Phenomenal One wanted not Mark Calaway, who has a Twitter account or posts selfies on Instagram, but The Undertaker of Yesteryear and believed Taker would fancy the Boneyard match since it’s right in his alley.

In the closing segment, Randy Orton ensured that WrestleMania will be Edge’s final chapter of his wrestling career, as he accepted their No Holds Barred match stipulation. The Apex Predator insisted that he indeed loves Edge, his wife Beth Phoenix and their two little girls but took exception to his opponent’s claim that he is an entitled brat. Accepting that he was handed the opportunity of getting into the WWE being a third-generation superstar, but also made it clear that it was the quality he brought which made him convert the chance and become a 10-time World Champion. Orton capped off the show saying “I Accept”, and promised to end Edge, who the man Adam Copeland is a junkie about.
Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar started off the show, with the advocate claiming that the Beast Incarnate Lesnar is the only certainty in today’s “most uncertain times “. Crediting Drew McIntyre for reaching the pinnacle, Heyman admitted that the Scottish Psychopath is a “made man” but that’s where the story ends for him. Because at the end, McIntyre will be another name in the list of people Lesnar has conquered.
Shayna Baszler must have put Becky Lynch on notice after her dominating performance at the Elimination Chamber but The Man proved again that her reign as Raw Women’s Champion that began at WrestleMania last year, isn’t a fluke. As Baszler sat down for an interview with Charly Caruso, intimidating her with her response, Lynch, out of nowhere, attacked the Queen of Spades with a steel chair to lay her out flat in the ring.
Seth Rollins answered to Kevin Owens’ challenge last week but not without leaving KO at a rare loss of words. Rollins made Owens and viewers realise that the Performance Center is made of his blood and sweat, going back to the FCW days and compared his near-spotless Wrestlemania record to Owens’ not-so-impressive record at the Show of Shows, including a last year absence. In the end, Rollins warned KO that in such a scenario, WrestleMania will help him better his game, surprisingly leaving Owens speechless.
