- It wasn’t only people backstage unaware of the Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker match finish, the referee for the match, Chad Patton, didn’t know the end result either.
Apparently, Patton was informed the Undertaker would win ahead of the match but complied with the rule given to all WWE referees – go ahead and finish the three count if a wrestler does not kick out as if it were exactly what was planned.
As the story goes, following the three count and victory, Lesnar privately whispered “thank you” to the Undertaker to express his gratitude for the honor of being the man to break the Streak.
