WWE Fans Declare AJ Styles Dead on Wikipedia After the WrestleMania Boneyard Match

AJ Styles finished out the first night of WrestleMania 36 getting buried under a mound of dirt in his outstanding Boneyard Match. Fans decided to have fun with the result by editing Styles' Wikipedia page and declaring "The Phenomenal One" dead as a result of his match. One user added to his entry, "Joes was murdered on April 4th 2020 at the hands of the Undertaker who buried him alive in a boneyard somewhere during a WWE match when Jones got slammed through a set of stairs. The Undertaker is looking at 20 to 25 years in jail for the murder although his is appealing self-[defense]."

Typos notwithstanding, that's a pretty excellent prank. See for yourself:

By Sunday morning Wikipedia editors had changed Styles' page back. The final moments of the Boneyard Match saw Styles bursting his hand out of the grave, so it's safe to assume he'll be back on WWE television soon. Styles hasn't appeared on Twitter, Instagram or his Mixer channel since the loss.
