• FLASHBACK: Brock Lesnar Wasn’t Comfortable In Ending The Undertaker’s Streak At WrestleMania 30
6 Years ago today, Brock Lesnar ended The Undertaker’s 21-0 undefeated Streak at WrestleMania by pinning him in the middle of the ring at WrestleMania 30.
In this flashback article, let’s take a look at WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross revealing during his “The Ross Report” podcast in 2016 that Brock wasn’t comfortable in ending The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak:
“Look, if The Undertaker had not wanted to lose or not agreed to lose to Brock, they would have worked out something else because the story I heard about WrestleMania 30 is that it was harder to convince Lesnar to accept the victory and beat Undertaker at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans in Superdome than it was for McMahon to talk to The Undertaker about ‘it’s time’ because that decision wasn’t made until late on the day of the show.
And I don’t think that Brock was totally comfortable in breaking the streak because of his great respect for The Undertaker.”
