Wrestling is scripted. But even in the world of sports entertainment, streaks must end.
Brock Lesnar Ends Undertaker’s Streak
In the WWE, Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak was 21-0. It was a unique accomplishment that expanded into a marquee storyline. Namely, could anyone end the streak? Everyone knew the eventual outcome, but they kept the audience guessing with close and dramatic pinfalls or submissions. However, all goods things must come to an end.
On April 6, 2014 at WrestleMania XXX in a matched dubbed as The Streak vs. The Beast, it was The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar, the former undisputed UFC heavyweight champion. The bout was hard hitting and at times resembled an MMA match with submission maneuvers. However, things suddenly ended when Brock Lesnar delivered a third F5 to the Undertaker followed by the 3-count pinfall. Just like that the streak was over.
More shocking, though, was the Undertaker laying in the ring. He took his time and slowly walked off the stage as if this was his last match. If this is the end of the Undertaker, then it was a heck of a retirement match as the torch was passed on to Brock Lesnar.
Thank You Taker
