The Undertaker will always be credited as one of the greatest WWE superstars of all time. His three decades of destruction left a huge impact on the company, and one of his glorifying aspects was his undefeated streak at WrestleMania. Moreover, The Deadman himself believes that the conqueror of the streak, Brock Lesnar should not have been the one in 21-1.

The Undertaker’s streak gained a lot of prominence over the years with some of the best matches taking place involving him and many top WWE superstars. However, it was Brock Lesnar who laid the streak to rest at WrestleMania XXX in 2014.

In addition to Brock Lesnar, Undertaker also suffered a defeat at WrestleMania 33 at the hands of Roman Reigns. The Lord of Darkness now feels that Roman Reigns should have been the first person to dethrone him at WrestleMania. He spoke about this in an interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport.

“I think it would’ve been great for Roman,” Taker concluded. “I don’t think that it elevated [Brock’s] stardom like it could’ve helped someone else.”

The Tribal Chief now enjoys the longest reign as the World Champion in more than three decades. Furthermore, The Undertaker reflected on his illustrious streak and how it ultimately ended.

“I don’t think Brock needed it… Brock was a major attraction, he was a star. I don’t know if it enhanced him anymore.”

In the years leading up to WrestleMania 30, Undertaker also listed some of the individuals who Vince McMahon desired to break the streak with. Taker specifically named Edge and Vladimir Kozlov as candidates for the honors, with Edge personally declining the offer.

“That’s how much he respected the streak.”

The Undertaker took the final bow from in-ring competition at WrestleMania 36 and formally retired in 2020 at the Survivor Series event. His legacy was cemented when The Undertaker was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2022.
