It wasn’t just us fans who felt emotion when the Undertaker retired at WrestleMania 33 – WWE star AJ Styles recently opened up about his thoughts during an interview with Record Sports Online:
“I could tell you, I was emotional because he’s my friend. He and I have got a relationship..both of us have the same friend who we’re very close to, so then he and I developed this relationship without even knowing each other that well. But, it was heartbreaking, because this is the guy that’s been here for so long, and has shaped the WWE into what it is now. Is he gone? I don’t know, but you would assume. I think there were some tears from fans that they may have seen the last of The Undertaker, and at the end of the day, if he’s done, I respect the heck out of him for doing it his way and doing what he wanted to do in his last match. He is and was everything to the WWE, and I’m thankful that I got to meet him and have a great conversation with him. He’s a great guy. If he’s gone, if that’s the last one, he will be missed”
We can only dream what a match between the Deadman and Styles would have been like.
