The cinematic match closed out the first night of WrestleMania 36 and was the talk of social media with multiple trending topics.
The match came just less than a year since Undertaker stepped in the ring with Goldberg at WWE Super ShowDown 2019 in a match that was filled with botches and highly criticized. According to ESPN's Marc Raimondi, Kurt Angle told him that Undertaker was disappointed with the Goldberg match and Angle suggested Undertaker wrestle AJ Styles, saying he would have his best match in years.
