- Former WWE creative writer Alex Greenfield recently appeared on The Shoot and talked about The Undertaker making the decision to end The Streak:

“There is no pressure that is put on the Undertaker to drop the streak. This was the Undertaker’s decision, I have no doubt about that in my mind about that whatsoever. Nobody, including Vince (McMahon) is going to go to the Undertaker and say anything other than do you want to end the streak? There’s never going to be a (Alex impersonate’s Vince here) “Goddamn pal, Undertaker, it’s over, pal. You’re dropping the streak tonight.” That would never happen in a million years. He is and I think it’s safe to say the most respected guy in the locker room. I suspect he went to Vince and said this is the year and Brock is the guy. Thinking about it from Taker’s perspective as such of a fight fan as he is, if you’re going to go down, going down to the guy who walked away from wrestling and became the UFC heavyweight champion would appeal to his ego.”

- As noted, The Rock is currently in Australia to work on 3D disaster movie San Andreas. He posted the following on Twitter:

“Helo rappelling techniques for our earthquake disaster film SAN ANDREAS. Shooting starts next week. #LAFD #AirSquad”

- The North American Wrestling Rankings website, which has kept track of TV records and rankings since November 2006, reports that Jack Swagger suffered his 100th televised loss when Big Show defeated him on last night’s Main Event. NAWR’s John Finnegan wrote:

“When Jack Swagger lost to The Big Show on the 4/15/14 episode of Main Event it was his 100th televised singles loss! Swagger is just the 2nd wrestler to lose 100 matches [behind only Dolph Ziggler]. Others closing in on the century mark for losses as of 4/15/14 are: Kofi Kingston [99], The Miz [94], and Zack Ryder [90].”

    It really makes me sick the way they treat swagger, such a waste

    No, sorry, it wasn’t the right call, no matter who made it, even if it WAS Taker.

    Ryder is never on tv… if he was, he would have a lot more than 100.

  • Kristian

    100 Televised losses in 5+ years isn’t so bad, especially consider he appears on Superstars, Main Event, RAW and Smackdown, so it’s not so bad.

  • CM Punk

    I’m Surprised 2 Former World Champions Ziggler & Swagger And Former WWE Champion The Miz has more loses then Zack Ryder lol
