The Undertaker and AJ Styles battled it out in a Boneyard Match in the main event of WrestleMania 36 Night One on Saturday night, and fans simply couldn't believe how much fun the match was. Unlike the rest of the show, which took place inside the empty WWE Performance Center, the two battled on a closed set that included an open grave and an abandoned farmhouse. Undertaer arrived in his American Badass gear (much to the delight of nostalgic fans), but Styles had a few tricks up his sleeve with Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and a gang of hooded druids coming to his aid. The pair battled all around the farm, eventually leading to Taker tossing Gallows off the roof, hitting Anderson with a Piledrive and chokeslamming Styles onto a pile of wood 10 feet below.
The match culminated in Taker throwing Styles inside the grave, then tossing a large pile of dirt on him to seal the deal
Fans and wrestlers alike were simply stunned by the cinematic experience. Check out some of the best reactions below and let us know what you thought in the comments!

That was so fucking beautiful. The dark disturbing nature of the Undertaker. The lighting. The crescendo of his music. The badass rock video. The whole fucking story of that match.
THAT IS HOW YOU DO UNDERTAKER AT #WRESTLEMANIA
