The Undertaker is a legend in the world of professional wrestling. His undefeated streak at WrestleMania remains one of the greatest streaks in the history of the business. He gave more than three decades of his life to the business and The Undertaker’s contributions will never be forgotten.
The Undertaker’s streak came to an end at WrestleMania 30 in 2014, where he was defeated by Brock Lesnar, in a move that shook the pro wrestling world to its core. Due to this, his streak ended after 21 consecutive wins.
While speaking on the “Oh… You Didn’t Know?” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg stated that he believes The Undertaker’s streak should never have been broken in the first place.
“I disagreed, but again, it’s creative decisions that neither… I don’t want to say they don’t matter, but they don’t,” Dogg said. “My wife was still at the building, I went back [to the hotel] and spent some time with myself, ordering room service and relaxing. My wife texted me saying ‘Undertaker just lost,’ and I thought she was lying to me.
“I couldn’t get it up on my iPad — I was trying to watch it on my iPad in the room and I couldn’t get it up. She said, ‘He just lost,’ I said, ‘No he didn’t, they’re gonna do something again, start the match over, they’re going to do something.’ I was in denial because I wasn’t in the know on that. So wow, what a moment, I’ll never forget that guy’s face, the fan with the glasses, I think that’s how we all felt.
Looking back on it now, I think we all still kind of feel that way,” Dogg said, echoing the same reaction from the fan at ringside. “Yeah, you hitched the wagon to Brock but at what expense? At what cost? Like I said, it really doesn’t matter, but I would’ve [voted] for him to go out clean and not ever lose at a WrestleMania. That would’ve been really cool.”
Even Jim Ross previously stated that The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak should have continued. The Deadman is currently enjoying life after retirement and that is all that matters.
