The Undertaker’s streak came to a shocking end back at WrestleMania 30 when Brock Lesnar was able to pin The Deadman for the first time at the biggest show of the year and end his almost three decades long undefeated streak.
There have been many reports regarding this match with Paul Heyman even starting the conspiracy that Lesnar went into business for himself that night and defeated The Deadman off his own back.
The former World Champion recently spoke to The CBS Sports State of Combat podcast where he revealed that the plans for the show changed a number of times and on the day of the show, the plan was for him to win the match.
“We had gone back and forth depending on the day. It changed very often, but it had been that way [with Lesnar losing] for about a week, and I showed up thinking I was going over. I found out about 1 p.m. that I wasn’t. It is what it is.”
Undertaker suffered a concussion as part of the match, which meant that he was unable to remember much of it, something that the former Champion revealed that he still regrets.
“I just wish I would have had my wits about me so the match would have been a little better and I could have put a little more emotion into it to make it a little bit more special. There’s nothing I could do about getting a concussion. That’s business and that’s the way I look at things.”
Despite the fact that the streak came to an end that night, The Undertaker also went on to state that he was happy with the way that it was done.
“Ultimately, the streak is one of the greatest accomplishments of my career and something I’ll be synonymous with for my legacy. But at the end of the day, I’m going to do what Vince wants me to do. He created The Undertaker. He gave me the opportunity. Could I have made a power play? Yeah, but seriously, what good was that going to do? What kind of precedent does that send? It just wouldn’t have been right.”
