The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak was one of the biggest things in WWE history. It ended back at WrestleMania 30 when Brock Lesnar beat him. That made his record 21-1, which many people thought would never happen.
The Undertaker spoke to Pardon My Take, where he revealed how long he wanted his streak to continue. It seems if the decision was left to him, he would have made it last much longer.
Yeah, on a personal level, of course. Selfishly, would I have liked to have gone 25, 26-0? Of course. I mean, that would probably have been the greatest record in all of wrestling. But, business is business, and sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down. The most important thing, after that one, afterwards, I mean, I was concussed. So, I didn’t even remember it. I was more concerned afterwards about my head to stop hurting and being able to come out of the dark for a couple weeks. But, the streak, it is what it is. I double-checked with Vince [McMahon], I said, “Are you sure that’s what you want to do?” And he was like, “Mark, if it’s not him [Brock Lesnar], who’s ever going to beat you?” And I was just like, “Alright. It’s your call, and if that’s what you want, that’s what we’ll do.”
The Dead Man has two losses at WrestleMania now. He lost to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33, which many thought would signal the end of his legendary career.
Perhaps things would have been much different had Taker’s streak lasted longer. He last competed at WrestleMania 36, where he defeated AJ Styles in a boneyard match.
