WWE originally planned to hold WrestleMania 3 in front of more than 100,000 fans at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, but social distance rules forced the company to tape the match without a fan presence at the Performance Center training facility in Orlando, Florida.
As a result, plans for Undertaker vs. Styles changed, and the match took place in a makeshift cemetery (aka A Boneyard) instead of an empty arena.
Undertaker said in an Instagram live video Nine Line Clothing That he liked the sound of the Buried Alive match, but WWE decided Stiles would challenge him in a Boneyard match.
“If it were me, if I was making the match, I’d say, ‘OK, this is a Buried Alive Match'” “AJ Styles knows nothing about Buried Alive matches. He called it a Boneyard match, so that’s what he did. Now this is a Boneyard match! “

Undertaker and Buried Alive matches
From 1996 to 2010, Undertaker participated in five Buried Alive matches on WWE Television.
At that time, he defeated Mankind in the first Buried Alive match in In Your House 11: Buried Alive, when he teamed up with The Big Show to defeat the Rock ‘n’ Sock connection in a 1999 episode of SmackDown.
Buried Alive also suffered losses against WWE legends Steve Austin (26: Rock Bottom at Your Home), Vince McMahon (Survival Series 2003) and Ken (Bragging Rights 20).
