AJ Styles issues a WrestleMania challenge to The Undertaker.
During tonight’s episode of Raw, an irate Styles calls out Undertaker to a match at WrestleMania 36 after Styles’ last two pay-per-view matches ended in defeat thanks to The Deadman. A contract signing to make the match official is set for the March 16 episode of Raw.
In his promo challenging Undertaker, Styles said he no longer sees a phenom but sees a man named Mark Calaway, Undertaker’s real name. Styles further shattered the fourth wall by talking about Undertaker’s wife Michelle McCool, saying that he will help McCool in running Undertaker to the ground and promises to take his soul.
The match had been reported for weeks that the match was penciled in for WrestleMania 36, taking place on April 5 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The feud began at last month’s Super ShowDown event when The Undertaker replaced Rey Mysterio in the Tuwaiq Trophy Gauntlet Match and pinned Styles. At Elimination Chamber on March 8, Undertaker helped Aleister Black pick up a win over Styles in a no-DQ match.
