The grave history of Buried Alive Matches

Being a WWE Superstar is all about being fearless. Getting in the ring every night takes a certain amount of guts. But what do you do when you’re confronted with the prospect of being thrown in an open grave and having dirt shoveled on top of you until you’re buried alive?

Most Superstars, understandably, wouldn’t even want to consider such a thing. That’s probably why there’s only been five Buried Alive Matches in WWE history. In honor of the few Superstars daring enough to step foot into WWE’s makeshift cemetery, join WWE Classics in celebrating the 16th anniversary of the most macabre match of all time.
