The feats of The Undertaker go down in the pages of WWE as some of the greatest. Apart from having numerous records to his name, he has risen to be one of the most highly regarded stars inside the ring by his fellow competitors. His undefeated streak remains one of the most talked-about events in the WWE.
WrestleMania 30 gave the audience an extreme level of bewilderment. While the majority of the fans were eager to add a new number to the Deadman’s undefeated streak of 21-0, the management had other plans. Brock Lesnar became the man to put an end to the massive feats he had attained during his 50-year-long WWE career.
The Undertaker recently spoke to Ariel Helwani of BT Sports and revealed that he never wanted Brock Lesnar to be the guy to break his streak. He believed that Brock Lesnar had already attained much popularity and fame with his run at the UFC and the feat fell flat on Lesnar’s glorious career.
On the other hand, The Undertaker wanted Roman Reigns to be the person to defeat him. “I think it would have been great for Roman if Brock hadn’t already done it, it would have been a huge thing for Roman,” said the Undertaker. He was also open to any other superstar to break the record apart from The Beast Incarnate.
Vince McMahon wanted The Undertaker to lose to Brock Lesnar
The Undertaker has served in the ring for over 50 years and is well aware of the behavior of the management. He recalled the day of WrestleMania 30. He was in his dressing room, hours before his match against Brock Lesnar at the Grandest Stage Of Them All. However, Vince McMahon had other plans.
Vince stepped inside his room and The Deadman knew why he had been there for. “I knew what it was, he changed the finish. I gave him my spiel and what I thought, and it wasn’t no in the sake that I didn’t want to do the job, it was no in the sense that I didn’t feel like Brock needed it,” he said.
However, Vince is not a man who budges from his words. He told Taker if not Brock, then he wonders if there is anyone else who could break the streak. Despite losing the match, The Undertaker received much-needed support and love from the WWE Universe and continues to be one of the greatest ones to ever step inside the squared circle.
