The Undertaker has recalled a meeting with Vince McMahon ahead of Brock Lesnar ending his undefeated streak at WrestleMania 30.
Speaking with ESPN, the ‘Deadman’ first discussed whether he actually ever thought the streak was going to end, and then whether he was happy with Lesnar being the man to end it.
“Internally, and the way this business works, I knew that someday it probably would. In our industry, you just don’t walk away like Floyd [Mayweather] and retire undefeated or Rocky Marciano.”
He also discussed the conversation with Vince McMahon about Lesnar ending it in 2014, saying:
“Although most of my peers and people that I work with thought it was a horrible decision. I just asked Vince, are you sure? Is this what you want? He was like, ‘If it’s not Brock, who can beat you?’ from the way the streak was built and by that time.
“So it was like, alright, it’s your call. Everybody thinks that I have all this juice that I can say yes or say no. I mean I could have said no. What good was that gonna do?…what do I do? Not go out? Or throw a tissy?, I’m not going over… that’s not me. I’m business, and business comes first before anything personal.”
