Brock Lesnar pulled off one of the biggest shocks in wrestling history when he was able to pin The Undertaker and end The Streak back at WrestleMania 30.
Many believed that this would be the show that Undertaker retired at and this would be him putting The Beast over as the next big thing in the company. Of course, The Deadman has returned numerous times in the last six months, which has rendered the end of The Streak somewhat pointless.
Many fans believe that the end of The Streak shouldn’t have happened and WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson also backs that theory. The current AEW star recently addressed the end of the streak on his ARN Podcast.
“No disrespect to Brock Lesnar, I don’t think Taker’s streak should’ve ever been broken. He should still be sitting here unbeaten [at WrestleMania]. It’s as special as anything has ever been, it’s more special than anybody that won a world title. It’s one of those things that comes along every so often and the character fits the angle.”
“There’s nobody that you would say on any of those WrestleManias that Taker won that said very clearly he’s going to get beat tonight. I don’t think that anybody would believe he would ever get beat and he’s the guy to pull that off. Sometimes when it’s the thing to do, do it.”
Anderson went on to state that he believes that The Deadman should have retired from WWE undefeated regardless of how long that took.
“Leaving him undefeated would’ve been perfect. Let him walk away, let him retire, let him get put in the hall of fame all in one year and let that record, whether it would be 30-0, that’s something monumental.”
“I don’t think Brock needed the win to convince anybody that he was a number one guy, it was just one of those things that wasn’t necessary,” via WrestlingInc.
