The Undertaker revealed who the WWE Superstar he thinks ought to have broken his winning run at WrestleMania.
He had an incredible 21-0 record in the premier live event going into his bout against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. Despite the enormous challenge posed by The Beast, the majority of the WWE Universe believed that The Deadman would prevail in the end. The Undertaker’s amazing streak came to an abrupt end as Brock defeated him by pinfall.
The Hall of Famer acknowledged to Ariel Helwani of BT Sport that Lesnar didn’t require the victory at the moment and hoped Roman Reigns was the star to snap the run. The Phenom suffered his second defeat at WrestleMania 33’s main live event at the hands of The Tribal Chief:
“I don’t think Brock needed it. Brock was a major attraction and he was a star. I don’t know that it enhanced him anymore. I think it would have been great for Roman (Reigns) if Brock hadn’t already done it, it would have been a huge thing for Roman. But I don’t know that it meant the same to Brock as it would have meant to Roman, or anybody else who’d have done it,” said The Undertaker.
The Undertaker talks about Vince McMahon’s decision to alter the conclusion of WWE WrestleMania 30
As he arrived at the New Orleans Superdome for WrestleMania 30, The Undertaker admitted that he believed he had won the match.
“When I got there that day, I was still going over. It’s in the early afternoon and I remember sitting in the dressing room. Vince (McMahon) came in and I knew as soon as he came in, I knew what it was, he’s changed the finish. I give 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. Vince’s counter to that was, ‘if not Brock, who does?'” The Undertaker said.
WWE WrestleMania 37 featured The Undertaker’s final match ever. He put his boots away permanently after defeating AJ Styles in a boneyard match. The four-time WWE Champion was enshrined in the Hall of Fame last year and is unquestionably one of the finest athletes to ever grace the screen.
