More Backstage News on The Undertaker Losing at WrestleMania, His WWE Future, Fan Reaction

Undertaker Streak Ended 21 - 1

– There was a huge “bullshit” chant that started up after Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX last night after everyone realized what happened. It wasn’t until the 21-1 graphic came up that everyone realized The Streak was over. The chant quieted down and most of the crowd just sat there stunned. Taker did get the standing ovation and a “thank you Taker” chant from most but some did boo while this was going on. Multiple sources report that fans were seen leaving and several were seen crying. Taker’s loss really brought the live crowd down a notch and they didn’t seem to get back into things until well into the main event.

We noted earlier today that Taker was taken to a local hospital last night for fear of a concussion and a neck injury. We also noted that Taker losing was the original plan. This was kept from just about everyone but betting odds started to change shortly before the show began.

It’s said that this was indeed The Undertaker’s decision. We noted before that back in 2010, Taker wanted Lesnar to be the one to end The Streak. This is not confirmed yet but the impression was given backstage that Taker is done. No word yet on how this changes a potential match with Sting at WrestleMania 31.

    It’s not, but if you don’t watch for a certain reason or another, you’re missing out on a lot of great talent and matches. I agree though, it feels much different.

  • Ray Tran

    Ya pretty much and watch youtube clips when he came back leading up to WM.

    Wrestling isn’t the same anymore.

  • The Killswitch

    So you just watch Wrestlemania? Since that’s the only time he wrestles?

  • Ray Tran

    I’m not abandoning Taker. I’m just saying if he chooses to retire then I’m going to retire from watching the product. He’s the ONLY reason why I continue to watch the WWE. All my favourite wrestlers are all retired and not really fan of any new guys.

  • The Killswitch

    Is it really fair to abandon the man because he isn’t wrestling once a year anymore, who wrestled less matches than The Rock and Lesnar combined? He’s almost 50, and he looked in really bad shape last night. I could legitimately believe he’s almost out of matches.

  • JAckh45

    It’s a work!

  • Seth Becker

    I don’t have a problem with Lesner being the one. I mean I did, but after thinking about it, I’m ok with it. We all know Taker is a big UFC fan, and is close to Lesner. And as someone else pointed out, he lost to a genuine bad ass in Lesner. I don’t like that he lost to a guy who only works a few months out of the year, but it’s believable that Lesner could beat him.

    It pissd off EVERYONE, has blown up on social media, not just WWE sites or to the stupid IWC, but has transcended mediums, genres and nothing else could have done that! WWE is now more than ever just another money making business, everything is hollow inside the wwe. WWE see there being not much talent in wwe now, so they are more than ever riding the social media wagon to paper over the cracks.

    Also, if you’re Taker, you want to lose to some ‘performer’ or ‘sports entertainer’ hell no! If you’re going to lose then have it someone with Brocks pedegree, i mean a former UFC champ, titles in everything he did and he is a genuine bad ass. Not these over oiled pre-maddonnas! WWE paradigm has shifted now more than ever, simple case of get on, stay on or get off this bus.

    i am with you on that, 1983 here

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    What a complete and utter joke, if taker WAS thinking on bowing out gracefully, then why lesnar? Huge names like HHH/HBK/Flair/ Roberts/Snuka/Orton and Kane ALL couldn’t do it, so what makes Lesnar so special? he’s already accomplished enough of a career so him winning won’t do anything for him. Why not give it to a guy with a future ahead of him to catapult him into stardom? Ziggler/Reigns/Wyatt/Barrett etc could have all gone up and had the match and won, there by shooting to stardom. Lesnar winning didn’t mean a damn thing

  • Ray Tran

    I’ve said on many occasions and if last night was indeed Taker’s last match and he’s going to retire from the active roster then this wrestling fan since 1989 is done as well.

  • D2K

    Probably after the first HBK match he should have shut it down.

  • Stumpy

    If the big E did sign Sting (that’s a big IF), the scenario I see unfolding tonight is Taker comes out to announce his retirement and Sting interrupts, goading him into one more match at WM31. The big E then promotes it like they did for Rock/Cena 1 for a year giving Taker time to heal and knock off his usual ring rust. Then he goes into the Hall at next year’s ceremony. For that matter, both of them do.

  • TheFizPop

    Watch lesnar now go squash Bryan, i mean business wise makes most sense. Bryan most over, Lesnar most heat, only makes sense that Lesnar somehow takes the title tonight to maximise on this, until Bryan finally gets a title run from SSlam-RR.

    This is of course, if Brocks contract has changed and given the extra money that can be made, i think its probable.

  • I’m sorry, I don’t care if it was “Taker’s decision”. It was the wrong decision. He should have retired years ago, before it ever got this far.
