AJ Styles is yet to receive confirmation from The Undertaker that he’s retired and has ideas about one more match

WWE star AJ Styles has revealed that he is yet to receive confirmation from The Undertaker that he is officially retired.

The Phenomenal One's acclaimed cinematic Boneyard match at WrestleMania 36 was seemingly the Deadman's last ever bout.

Taker  – real name Mark Calaway – announced his decision to hang up his boots during the final episode of his documentary, The Last Ride.

Yet he confessed that he would consider a return "in case of emergency" and if boss Vince McMahon was "in a pinch".

And the 55-year-old also admitted that “something juicy” would bring him back to WrestleMania.

Styles, 43, spoke exclusively to SunSport about his hopes that Taker will get back in the ring for a sequel to their Boneyard match.

I wanted to give him a match that he can be proud of and say “that’s it for me” and if that was it, I'm happy to be able to have done that for him

And just to whet your appetite, here's a sample of what AJ has to say about his Boneyard clash against The Undertaker.

He told SunSport: "I had so many ideas, so many things that I thought would have been pretty awesome. And knowing that, he also said "Never say never if Vince needs him".

"But I had some ideas and everything about this match and I've yet to talk to the Undertaker and get that confirmation like “it's over! Don't call me about this anymore.”

"I almost want to hear him say “I'm done, stop! done!” But that's why it's so sad for me because they're ideas that I can't stop from staying in my brain just in case there's a chance or an emergency.

"Selfishly, I want to see him getting in the ring, you know, not selfishly, that I want to be his last match because I enjoy his work and have enjoyed it for so long.

"I wanted to give him a match that he can be proud of and say “that’s it for me, I don’t need to do anymore” and if that was it, I'm happy to be able to have done that for him."
