Nearly ten years on from The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak coming to an end at the hands of Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30, debates continue to rage on regarding WWE’s historic decision.
While some were fans of the shocking moment, others criticised the decision to have an already decorated star defeat Undertaker.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Stone Cold Steve Austin would reveal his opinion on the streak’s demise, saying:
“I didn’t like it, I mean, I just thought the streak was something hallowed or holy.”
While Austin disagreed with the decision, he would have no complaints over the honor going to The Beast:
“But if it’s gonna be somebody, why not Brock?”
While not the one to break the streak, Taker’s only other loss on the Grandest Stage of Them All would come against Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 33.
The Deadman ended his WWE career with a WrestleMania record of 25-2, with his final ever match coming at WrestleMania 36 where he defeated AJ Styles in a boneyard match.
That prestigious honor is one of many Styles can boast in an incredible 25-year career, however, he has chance to make history again by becoming the inaugural World Heavyweight Champion at Night of Champions on May 27, when he takes on Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins.
Here are results from the May 15 episode of WWE Raw:
