Brock Lesnar did not want to break Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak


Brock Lesnar was apparently not on board with defeating the Undertaker at WrestleMania 30 to end the streak

At WrestleMania 30 last year, the world was stunned when, after 21 consecutive victories without a loss, the Undertaker was defeated on the biggest stage of them all. As we know, Brock Lesnar was the man tabbed as worthy enough of breaking the vaunted streak, but it seems like he might not have been all that in favor of going through with it.

Via, Jim Ross and Shawn Michaels took part in a Q&A even with the latter as the feature person of the night, and that’s where they it was revealed that Lesnar wasn’t in agreement that he should be the one to end the streak. However, Vince McMahon had already spoken and he was not changing his mind.

"The Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak ending is discussed, and Michaels admits that he wasn’t a fan of the decision, and neither was JR. JR talked about Brock Lesnar not wanting to beat the streak and asking to lose the match, but the decision had been made.Shawn talks about how he was suppose to be part of a team of former champions who went out to the ring to celebrate with Daniel Bryan over his title win at WrestleMania XXX, but HBK refused after the way the crowd reacted after Brock’s victory, so he left the Superdome early."

With this report now, it’s really starting to seem like Vince McMahon was the only person who thought going through with this was remotely a good idea. We’ve heard many others say in the past year that it was a poor decision and they didn’t agree with it, but, we all know that whatever Vince says, goes.

Still, it’s hard to ignore the impact that it had, especially last year when Lesnar morphed into one of the more dominant forces the business has seen. He and the company used that momentum to lead to becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion at the next even he wrestled at.

Despite that, though, overall this event in the history of wrestling will never sit completely well with most people in the industry, especially with how respected Undertaker is.
