AJ Styles on facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania

I found out I was going to be working The Undertaker right before the Saudi show [in February].

For me, to be able to learn from the best, it was a blessing.
Styles also described some backstage moments from the taping of the Boneyard match, revealing how the Undertaker had to get stitches on his arm. Styles also revealed that the shoot lasted over eight hours until 4:30 in the morning:
There were definitely some crazy moments. Undertaker had to get stitches after he busted his arm open. That just added to the match, to be honest with you. Just being there and doing that particular match was awesome. And I don’t know if everyone knows how long it actually took. We started around eight o’clock, and we didn’t get finished ‘til about 4:30 in the morning.Published 01 Aug 2020, 23:14 IST
