WWE legend The Undertaker dropped a spine-tingling promo as he tore into AJ Styles ahead of their mega-WrestleMania 36 showdown.
The two WWE stars have been locked in a heated rivalry and are set to clash in a Boneyard match at the Grandest Stage of Them All next month.
And The Undertaker, real name Mark Calaway, returned to Monday Night Raw to cut a promo with some serious 'American Bad A*s vibes.'
The 55-year-old ditched his long black trench coat and black hat in favour of rolling back the years to his Big Evil persona.
'Taker donned a bandanna underneath a skull cap and wore a leather jacket as he took shots at Styles for being a 'small man with a really big mouth.'
The future WWE Hall of Famer said: "All the things you said about me, I get it. I do, it's just business.
"Where you crossed the line, though, was the first time you mentioned her [Michelle McCool].
"I think your pride is playing games with you again. I think you're mad because she does the Faithbreaker, AKA the Styles Clash, better than you do. She got it over.
"No matter the reason, you're going to pay the ultimate price for disrespecting her... my wife, Michelle McCool. And you're gonna pay that price in a Boneyard. Remember: that was your idea."
'Taker continued to launch scathing attacks on Styles in the promo, saying he "didn't have what it takes to hang" with WWE's biggest stars of the 2000s.
The 'Phenom' named off legends like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson that Styles 'ducked.'
"The 'Phenomenal One,' my a**e," he added. "You waited till they were all gone... except for me."
WWE fans have flocked to Twitter and praised the incredible new promo from 'Taker, with many praising him for bringing back shades of his American Bad A*s character.
One fan said: "This Biker Undertaker promo is a complete throwback to 2000-2003 Undertaker and I absolutely love it! The American Badass is back [sic]!!"
While another posted: "The Undertaker has always been one of the very best on the mic This was a damm good promo from dare I say Big Evil [sic]."
A third tweeted: "THAT's the Undertaker I wanted to see. That promo kicked a*s!"
And a fourth fan added: "This was Undertaker's best promo in a long time."
'Taker told WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold last year that the American Bad A*s persona was instrumental in saving his career during the Attitude Era.
WrestleMania 36 will be held across two nights on 4th April and 5th April at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
WWE was forced to move the event away from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
