Wrestlemania 36 was one of the strangest Wrestlemanias of all time. Taking place right at the beginning of the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, it was held in front of a total of zero live fans due to the social distancing measures in place. With the “closed doors” aspect of the show however, it did allow WWE to be a little bit more creative.
It led to a highly innovative Last Man Standing match between Edge and Randy Orton, a Firefly Funhouse match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena which needs to be seen to be believed, and the famous Boneyard match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles. Of course, no fans were able to see this cinematic match in person, but it has recently been revealed that three WWE superstars were lucky enough to witness the filming process.
Which WWE Superstars Saw The Undertaker’s Last Match?
On Twitter, a wrestling fan tweeted out that WWE Superstar Johnny Gargano was present at the filming for the Boneyard match. When a fellow wrestling fan asked Gargano why he was there, if he was an extra on set for example, Gargano replied;
“Given the historical significance of it potentially being Undertaker’s last Mania match at the time.. Me, Candice and Tommaso asked Hunter if we could go watch the filming and he let us come by and check it out! Definitely a cool moment to look back on.”
As things stand, it wasn’t even just The Undertaker’s final Wrestlemania performance, it was the final match of his entire illustrious career. Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae and Tomasso Ciampa were very privileged to witness history happen right in front of them. The Undertaker defeated AJ Styles in the Wrestlemania 36 Night One main event, burying Styles alive with help from a nearby tractor. The match was very well received by wrestling fans and currently holds a 7.69 rating out of 10 on Cagematch.net.
Johnny Gargano recently returned to the WWE after an eight-month absence due to the impending arrival of his first child with wife Candice LeRae. Gargano and Ciampa are also very close friends outside of wrestling, and all three were part of the Triple H-led NXT at the time, which explains why these superstars were together for the filming of the match.
