Long after both have retired and old matches are thought about this would be up there for how unique it was and the realism.

It had a proper fight feel different to anything E have produced for a very long time.

This is why Undertaker wanted a Wrestlemania match with AJ as he knew he'd have his best for many years.

AJ lost but is on a small list of names from the thousands in the history of the business who have had the pleasure of facing Undertaker at Wrestlemania.
 

Little surprised to see this post from you pal as I know you're normally a bit of a hater as far as The Undertaker is concerned, but I'm glad you enjoyed the match as much as I did. 

I thought it was excellent, best Undertaker match at Wrestlemania since HBK and the best choice to headline night 1. 

The empty arena would have killed a straight up wrestling match between these two, very smart move to make the most of the pre-tape post-production advantage by taking the match out of the arena and filming it the way they did. 

Taker on the bike with Metallica playing was a mark out moment, I loved how cinematic the production was, this was sports entertainment at its best. 

Unsurprisingly the match has received universal praise on social media from wrestlers. This was also very smart booking of Taker who we all know can't go in the ring like he used to, in this scenario he didn't have to work too hard as it was all about the effects and the production, he looked like a bad ass again. 

AJ may have lost but I'm sure he'll be incredibly proud of the fact he had such a great Wrestlemania moment with a true legend of the business, this was one occasion where the Deadman was right to go over, it didn't hurt Styles. 

I would say this was actually quite ground-breaking in that cinematic wrestling matches can really be something when produced right and hopefully we see more of these kinds of matches in the future. Well done to WWE for this and giving us something to enjoy this much during a difficult time. Cena and Wyatt have a tough act to follow.

I wasn't a fan of part time broken down middle aged man doing his dated mythical character gimmick that others had to put over.

The idea of a tough bastard called Mark who likes riding motorbikes and sticks up for his wife I can very much get behind.

Loved him calling AJ Allen and the match protected him real good because he didn't have to try and do wrestling moves that don't come as easy for him nowadays.

So many wrestling personalities tweeted about it including from other companies and the likes of Bully Ray.

It even had a video message tweet from Mick Foley wanting to be in a boneyard match next year.

It genuinely could be the go to match for The Undertaker every Wrestlemania from now on and he's gone 4 and 0 at Wrestlemania now as the American Badass.

Gallows and Anderson were booked to help but not for long, which was the way to go.

I don't see how Bray/Cena later filmed in the same way can even top this.

So after watching part 2 I think there is no doubt that The Undertaker vs AJ Styles was match of both nights. 

WWE would have been smart to do cinematic production with other matches too as the missing audience did hurt a lot of the matches, Edge vs Orton for example would have benefited from this treatment and maybe Otis vs Dolph would have been better with some post production effects. Cena vs Wyatt should have been filmed as more of a fight rather than the jumble of weirdness we saw. 

This did make me think though how cool would Goldberg vs Taker have been if they filmed it as this style of match? It may also open up the possibility to do Undertaker vs Sting like this.
