Heading into WrestleMania 36, fans were curious as to what exactly a Boneyard match was. Many suspected it would be a cinematic match in a graveyard, but they were worried it would end up like the House Of Horrors match between Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton at Payback 2017.
Triple H discussed putting the bout together on the After The Bell podcast and revealed even Vince McMahon didn't know what a Boneyard match should be.
The Cerebral Assassin said: "Obviously, 'Mania was taking place prior to WrestleMania. At that point in time, a lot of things were taking place at the same time. So, when we got done shooting NXT television, I then went to Vince and was like, "So, I feel like this is something that I can take and run with it, that would probably be the most helpful because everybody's going to be running in different directions and what do you think needs the most for me to look at,' I guess is a way of saying it.
"And he was like, 'Boneyard match' and I was like, 'Okay, great. So, what is the Boneyard match?' And he's like, "I don't know.' He was like, 'Graveyard. It's in a graveyard,' and I said, 'Okay,' and he was like, 'They've got this huge field. They're going to turn it into a graveyard and its in the middle of nowhere.' I was like, 'What do you want it to be?' And he's like 'I don't know, just make it good.'"
