During an interaction with Adrian Hernandez at the WWE Media Day ahead of WrestleMania XL, AJ Styles reflected upon his boneyard match with The Undertaker. The Phenomenal One revealed that the Deadman'sfinal match would have been an intense beatdown between the two, and it would go to an extent where he could not even stand up. 

“Well, I had some ideas that I had that never came up because we weren’t in a ring. So, it’s just one of [those things] where I wanted to just beat him down, take him out, take advantage of any of the things he’s ever hurt on his body, and just grind on it. To the point where it’s hard for him to stand up.

“And then he just goes balls to the walls,” he continued, “Hit me with every finisher that he possibly had. And then, beat me right there in the middle of the ring. For me it’s like, ‘I gotta take all the Undertaker’s finishes.’ That would have been cool,” Styles revealed.
