AJ Styles will go head-to-head with Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, Otis, Aleister Black, and King Corbin in the men’s Money In The Bank ladder match this Sunday at the WWE Headquarters in Stamford.
The Phenomenal One took a brief hiatus following his burial at the hands of The Undertaker at WrestleMania 36. The first-ever Boneyard Match emerged as the most epic showdown across the two-night WrestleMania extravaganza, and despite his best efforts, Styles failed to cement his legacy as the only Superstar (after Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns) to have scored a victory over The Deadman at the Grandest Stage Of Them All.
On The Bump, Styles claimed that the historic Boneyard Match had brought out a different version of ‘Taker. It is to be noted that Mark Callaway had donned a revamped version of the American Bad Ass gimmick for the encounter, more precisely, his Holy Trinity character.
“I think it was a different version of AJ Styles and not just AJ Styles, but also The Undertaker. Not only is the Money In The Bank match unique, but the Boneyard Match was unique. It was different and I gotta be honest with you guys, I can’t take credit for the situation we were in — we were in a position to have an unbelievable encounter, Undertaker and I. Situations are what they are and again, you take advantage of them.”
The Phenomenal One made it clear that although he was made to “rest in peace”, he still has unfinished business with the man who buried him at ‘Mania.
“Well, I can tell you this there wasn’t a referee. Did I lose? I don’t know. Maybe I got some dirt thrown on me, but that doesn’t mean I lost. Unfinished business? Absolutely. If I ever have the chance to get my hands on the Undertaker, no problem. Well, obviously there’s a problem, but I’m looking forward to it.”
Will The Undertaker come back for one more match against AJ Styles?
