The Undertaker is a legend in the squared circle, and The Streak just added to that reputation. The Undertaker stepped into the ring at WrestleMania 21 times and won each time. He defeated WWE superstars such as Triple H, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Edge, and Jake Roberts.
Despite many fans believing that The Streak should have never been broken, Brock Lesnar stunned the world by pinning The Deadman in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania 30. Since there was no way The Undertaker could lose, many thought the finish was botched. It didn’t help that the veteran had sustained a serious concussion during the match.
The Undertaker and Kane recounted the match in a documentary titled The Brothers of Destruction, which looked back on their relationship. During the conversation, Kane questioned on his on-screen brother’s thoughts on the match.
I have to ask you this, but we get ahead to WrestleMania with you vs Brock and my reaction when I was watching that, I thought the finish got messed up, I was like, they’re going to restart the match or something. Something got screwed up. And they didn’t.
I walked out of the room. I was literally so mad about that. And I know that the streak is not something that anyone ever planned and it kind of organically evolved, but it would become part of WrestleMania lore at that point.
People came to see the Undertaker and they came to see all the stuff and then in the end, they came to see you 20 something and 0. It didn’t have the same feel when it was 21-1. What were your thoughts on that?
In response, The Undertaker stated that he was supposed to win the show on the morning of the show until Vince McMahon changed his mind.
I got to the arena that day and I was going over, Right. We had gone back and forth and when I showed up I was going over and through the course of the day, Vince came to me and said, he changed his mind. And I was like, okay?
I said, well, I don’t think Brock needs it, but at the end of the day, it’s your show, it’s your call.
If you’re sure about it, that’s what we’ll do. And that’s part of the business, obviously. That’s what we do. I thought there would be somebody like Roman. I think Roman would have been fine.
The Undertaker wrestled five more matches at WrestleMania after his shocking defeat. He ended up winning four games and losing one. In fact, the final match of his career came at WrestleMania 26 against AJ Styles. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
