Wrestlemania 36: The Undertaker vs AJ Styles Betting Pick

Hey guys, are you ready for some rasslin’?! Tune in this Saturday and Sunday evenings at around 7:00 PM Eastern for the action.

All of the matches were previously recorded this past weekend down at the WWE performance center in Orlando, Florida.

I do find it kind of hard to believe that online sportsbooks like BetOnline.AG have odds available to bet on something that is scripted. They will limit your bets but that’s probably a good thing considering the high likelihood you’re putting your money in a dangerous place.

Okay, we know the WWE is a soap opera.

That’s really the only reason they are still able to hold weekly broadcasts like Monday Night RAW and Friday Night Smackdown as well as pay per view events like this weekend’s Wrestlemania 36.

The WWE doesn’t have to answer to any state athletic commissions like the UFC does, for example.

Speaking of the UFC, Dana White is in talks with several Native American tribes in hopes of turning back the fight clock and holding an MMA event on the reservation. Man, that brings back so many memories.

Anyway, guys, we are going to be picking several of the matches at Wrestlemania 36.

Today, we focus on Mr. Wrestlemania himself, the seemingly immortal Undertaker and his match with the ever-exciting AJ Styles. The Undertaker is, in fact, undefeated in “competition” at the trademark pay per view event for the WWE. 21-0, actually.

It’s going to be hard to beat that. I know AJ is a massive star with the company and has paid his dues already. Let’s examine the beef between the two men, break this one down, and make our prediction on the winner.

The Undertaker (-400) vs AJ Styles (+250)

Born on Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in June of 1977, Allen Jones grew up in poverty facing daily abuse from an alcoholic father.

The family didn’t have enough money for cable tv and this was devastating even to the pre-teen AJ who knew since he was a little half-pint that he was going to pursue a career in professional wrestling.

Styles has wrestled all over the world. He was with TNA for a while and even in Japan for years.

AJ has been a huge star ever since the first day with the WWE, though. They were wise not to slowly build him up because they knew the level of stardom they had on their hands. Cool story, though.

Is he going to be the only wrestler ever to beat the Undertaker at Wrestlemania? I doubt it.

Let’s just review the Undertaker’s record at Wrestlemania:
  • It all began in 1991 when he pinned the legendary Superfly Jimmy Snuka.
  • He then went on to defeat Diesel, Ric Flair, his brother Kane twice, Triple H three times, and Shawn Michaels among others.
  • He even beat both the Big Show and A-Train in a handicap match!

The Big Show isn’t big enough? They had to give him a tag partner just to challenge the Undertaker! That’s just how it goes at Wrestlemania.

AJ asked for this match, though. He wants to be the one! Big ego coming in hot!

I think it will be a wildly entertaining match as both men are two of the most respected workers in history, not only of their company but of the entire profession.

I have to go with Mean Mark AKA The Undertaker!

My Pick
THE UNDERTAKER

In Conclusion

There you have it, folks!

This one wasn’t too difficult so I tried to keep it short and sweet for you guys.

Unless the WWE is planning on pushing the 40+ AJ Styles harder than they ever have, he isn’t going to get the win over the ‘Taker.

Amassing a record of 21-0 over the course of two decades of Wrestlemania, the man has yet to lose.

If they didn’t let Flair, Michaels, Kain or Hunter Hearst Helmsley beat him, I just cannot imagine they let a 40-year-old Travis Tritt-looking dude who is less than 6-foot tall defeat The Undertaker.

And that’s all I got to say about that… Tune in, turn up, and bet hard!
