• “He changed the finish” – The Undertaker Recalls WrestleMania 30 Loss

The wrestling world was left shocked on April 6th 2014, when Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker and broke the legendary undefeated streak at WrestleMania 30.

When Undertaker arrived to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that day, he was scheduled to defeat Lesnar.

However, Vince had a meeting Undertaker in the afternoon, where the finish was changed.

During an interview with Ariel Helwani, Undertaker was asked if Lesnar should’ve said no to the idea of him breaking The Streak, like Edge did in 2008.

Below is what the WWE Hall Of Famer said:

“It’s hard to say. I don’t think Brock needed it. I think Brock was a major attraction, he was a star, and he was made. I don’t know that it enhanced him anymore.

I think it would have been great for Roman if Brock hadn’t already done it. It would have been a huge thing for Roman. I don’t know that it meant the same to Brock as it would have meant to Roman or anybody else who would have done it because Brock had already been there.

Brock had already gone off to UFC. He already had all these major accomplishments. I think it could have helped somebody else.

When I got there that day, I was still going over. It’s in the early afternoon. I remember sitting in the dressing room and [Vince McMahon] came in, and as soon as he came in, I knew what it was. He changed the finish.

I gave him my spiel and what I thought. It wasn’t no for the sake of not wanting to do the job. It was ‘no’ in the sense that I didn’t feel like Brock needed it. Vince’s counter was, ‘If not Brock, then who beats you?’ Vince can sell ice to an Eskimo.

I brought up as many points as I thought, like, looking long term down the road. Vince, his deal too is, who down the road? At that point, I’m year to year. I don’t know when I’m going to pull the trigger and say enough’s enough, so I think he wanted to make sure he got that.

I don’t think he ever envisioned that character riding off into the sunset with a perfect record. I don’t know when I’m going to call it a day, but if I was going to do it, I wanted to do it for somebody, like I said, it would be very impactful for that person’s career.

Selfishly, I mean that would have been great to walk off being undefeated, but that’s just not how the business goes. There’s a lot of people through the years that laid down for me to help me build the mystique of my character and do that, so it’s only natural and only right to pay it forward.

The business itself is bigger than the one character. Brock was worthy of it. He was a huge draw at this point, but I don’t think that it helped him the way it would have helped, say Roman at the time.”
