AJ Styles & The Undertaker Exchanged Gloves After Boneyard Match

WWE star and current Raw Tag Team Champion AJ Styles recently spoke about being the man to face the Undertaker in his final WWE match.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on the Out of Character podcast, Styles spoke about being proud of the Boneyard Match at WrestleMania 36, saying:

“I’m proud that I had the opportunity to work with the Undertaker. It was icing on the cake to have one of the better cinematic matches that WWE has done. I was very proud of it and I’m sure Taker was very proud of it. It was one of those things where you weren’t sure how fans would take it, but it was exactly what we both needed. I was certainly pleasantly surprised when they said, ‘You’re doing a Boneyard match and it’s going to be different.’ Okay, cool. Not a match in front of nobody? Perfect. It was exactly what we envisioned. I would have loved to have the opportunity to work with him before he retired because we gelled so well in that Boneyard match.”

AJ then went on to tell a story about how he and Taker exchanged gloves after the match, similar to how sports players swap jerseys after a game. Styles said:

“I called his wife (Michelle McCool) and was like, ‘What does he want? I need to get him something,. She was like, ‘Give him your gloves, that would mean a lot to him if you signed your gloves.’ Michelle hooked me up. Hopefully, that was a gift he enjoyed. He actually sent his gloves to me with a very nice thank you letter.”

AJ also spoke to Satin about how he was concerned with how Vince McMahon envisioned him.

AJ, alongside his partner Omos, will defend their Raw Tag Team Championship against the Viking Raiders on the July 19 episode of Raw.
