The Undertaker’s Last Ride Documentary has been critically well-received and also has seemingly resulted in Taker announcing his retirement. As a follow-up, WWE has announced a special tribute to The Undertaker as part of WWE SmackDown this Friday Night.

The Tribute will include WWE re-airing the Boneyard match from WrestleMania 36. Here is the full announcement from WWE:
With the WWE Universe still buzzing over the final chapter of WWE Network’s groundbreaking documentary Undertaker: The Last Ride, SmackDown will feature a special “Tribute To The Undertaker” this Friday night.
As part of the special recognition, the astonishing Boneyard Match between The Deadman and AJ Styles will air on television for the first time. As Superstars, legends, celebrities and fans have expressed their support for the sports-entertainment icon, the blue brand now gets to share the same message: Thank you, Taker.
Join SmackDown in honoring The Undertaker and much more in another action-packed Friday night on FOX at 8/7 C.
I’m sure this announcement has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that WWE has reportedly had to rewrite significant portions of SmackDown as part of the high number of positive COVID tests.
