Michelle McCool was recently interviewed by The New York Post. For those that might not know, McCool is married to The Undertaker.
She revealed that Edge was originally offered the chance to end The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak. However, The Rated R Superstar turned it down and refused to be the one to in 15-1. McCool recalled:
“Actually I remember a few years prior that WrestleMania (24) versus Edge they talked about Edge breaking the streak and it was Edge that was actually like, ‘That makes zero sense. I don’t want to do that. Why would I do that? The fans already love him. What’s it gonna do for Edge?’ It was Edge that went to bat for the streak. I know they had talked about it prior to the match with Brock, but you know it happened. It’s fine, it’s not like it’s an end-all, be-all for Mark by any stretch of the imagination.”
Instead it was Brock who was the 1 in 21 and 1. Did McCool know it was going to end when it did?
“I did know late in that afternoon that was gonna happen. I couldn’t believe it. I don’t think it needed to happen. But, Mark was fine with it. People don’t understand he’s gonna do business. He understands that business is business.”
There has been rumors of people supposedly set to end the streak. Had she ever heard of any others?
“Yeah, that’s the only other time that I’d heard about it. But (it ending) definitely made for some good memes for years to come (Laughs). People’s faces for sure.”
McCool addresses The Undertaker’s Network special where we’re going to see behind the curtain of Undertaker’s career. It seems as he’s finally winding down, we’re going to see more of the man behind the character as time goes by.
What do you think? Should it have been Edge to end the streak? Let us know on Twitter.
