Bengaluru, Oct 2: Undertaker’s Wrestlemania streak was broken at the 30th edition of the event. It is considered to be the most shocking moment in the modern era and perhaps of all time.
The 72000 crowd present in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans got silent with that unwanted 1-2-3 count inside the middle of the ring. Even, the conqueror, Brock Lesnar himself could not believe the fact after the match.
Recently, WWE Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels and WWE announcer, Jim Ross held an event, 'An Evening with Shawn Michaels' in the UK.
They both discussed the incidents from that epic night in the year 2014. JR asked Shawn if he was supporting the decision of the streak being broken in the hands of Brock Lesnar. Interestingly, both Shawn and JR showed their disappointment of WWE’s decision, that night.
JR even revealed that Brock Lesnar did not favor the decision, either. He was not willing to pin the Deadman in the grandest stage, clean. The beast did not mind either to digest a loss on that night. But, the creative has made the final planning calling it a quit to the streak.
Lesnar was upset with the fact and left the Superdome as early as possible, once the match was done. Shawn Michaels further revealed that WWE tried to change the mood of the fans by giving Daniel Bryan, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, that night. He alongside other legends including Brock Lesnar was supposed to have a celebration for Bryan once the show went off the air.
However, the fans could not get over from the shock and hence the plan got cancelled.
Shawn though, understood the reason for Lesnar’s win, that night. The beast has been established as the biggest heel in WWE, since then. He was last pinned in the WWE at Wrestlemania 29 at the hands of Triple H.
Till date, the streak ending at Wrestlemania 30 is the most debated incident in WWE’s history. Many thought, it was not an original setup and rather Undertaker was not able to pull up his shoulder after the third F-5 from Lesnar. The Phenome was rushed to the hospital at that night after staying at the receiving end of Brock Lesnar’s beatdown.
