    03:00 GMT: That Boneyard Match was simply amazing. Very well done by WWE. Our special guests certainly have high praise for it. Viren “That was epic. The Boneyard Match 100% blew me away!”, and Lucy “That was incredible!”

    02:58 GMT: The Undertaker wins the Boneyard Match, burying AJ Styles, and then reveals his gravestone. AJ’s hand is sticking out of the dirt in the grave. The Undertaker then rides off on his motorbike. That was great!

    02:53 GMT: They are now on top of the shed in the boneyard. Fire has been involved. Anderson has been thrown off. Gallows has been given a Tombstone. Taker and Styles are now fighting on top. Taker then chokeslams AJ off the top of the large shed.

    02:51 GMT: THIS IS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF THE CINEMA! AJ Styles was sat in the truck ready to dump cement in the grave with Taker inside, and then The Undertaker appeared behind him! This deserves an Oscar!

    02:50 GMT: AJ Styles is now back on top and says The Undertaker just doesn’t have it anymore, as The Deadman is sat up against a tree in pain after a beat down, then gives Styles the middle finger. It looks like AJ is about to put The Undertaker out of his misery. Styles picks up a shovel ready to bury The Deadman.

    02:45 GMT: AJ Styles is currently in a grave bloodied and battered. Gallows & Anderson have now arrived, along with multiple druids ready to take down Taker!

    02:40 GMT: I love this. This is very unique! Quite similar to WWE’s version of the Ultimate Deletion.

    02:39 GMT: AJ Styles arrives in a hearse and coffin to the boneyard. The Undertaker arrives on his motorbike. ‘The American Badass’ is back!

    02:33 GMT: It’s Boneyard Match time, The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles, main eventing night one of WrestleMania 36. Special guest and WT Traveller, Viren, thinks The Undertaker may have some help “Interesting if Boneyard Match is Taker plus 2, vs. AJ Styles & OC” We’ll find out shortly.

    02:13 GMT: Kevin Owens picks up the win after giving Rollins the stunner in the middle of the ring. Just before that, Owens launched himself off the WrestleMania sign in the PC, onto Rollins, through the announce table. Our special guest, Viren, was in shock. “That dive from Owens! ????”

    02:07 GMT: Kevin Owens gets the mic and wants the match restarted under NO DQ rules. Rollin accepts and the bell rings!
