A Wrestling Mistake…Someone Must Answer For…

For a while now I have been finding comments and reaction videos concerning the Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania thirty and you would not believe the conspiracy theories running wild out there…

The Undertaker has accounted one of the most impressive and historic undefeated wins in the business and has gone 21 years without loss on the grandest stage of all but that changed when he suffered his first loss at the hands of Brock Lesnar at the thirtieth anniversary of WrestleMania…

Some believe that Lesnar cheated as he was not originally set to win the match by the evidence of Vince McMahon being interviewed quoting “Undertaker losing at WrestleMania 30 was a Mistake, Brock Lesnar changed the script and will be fired”…

Plus the facts at the end of the match were everyone including Lesnar’s own manager Paul Heyman was stunned into silence as the Referee took the three count…Brock Lesnar’s own music did not play afterwards for a good 5 minutes…

Others believe that time has taken its toll on the dead man and with a concussion suffered early into the match, he decided to hang up the streak for good…He even named Brock to end the streak years before…

At 49 years old, he is the greatest wrestler to date, a man who would strap a Kevlar vest over broken ribs just to go out and entertain…

He is a corner stone of the business and the conscience of the WWE and I have been a huge fan since WrestleMania thirteen and look forward to seeing him go into the WWE Hall of Fame…

But WrestleMania was the stage that people who would go against the measuring stick of the company and that measuring stick was the Undertaker…

Whether the dead man wanted to retire or the choice was made by the powers in charge is irrelevant, the “death” of the streak and in such a questionable way will forever leave a shadow on the WWE universe…

But something that should have been seen and maybe was but was forgotten by the owners of WWE and perhaps the Undertaker himself and that is the fact that he has been in the business so long that he has grown from just another wrestler, the persona of the phenom with its bell tolls and purple hue casted over many stadiums across the world signified the eternal law in life…

…you can beat death back but it gets you in the end…

Many people loved the idea of the Undertaker and what he represented, of the eternal soul that rests in all of us and that no matter how long we run from it, everyone must greet death, in the end it’s one of the reason the Undertaker has some many fans but despite the loss of the streak the dead man will remain a fan favourite and will have many fans for “eternal” life…

Anyone worth their weight in knowledge can tell you that the list of the Undertakers fallen opponents is a who’s who A-list of superstars and the type of matches range from the one on ones to everything and anything…

For 21 years, the phenom of the WWE has claimed all souls that have tried to make a name for themselves at his expense and whether anyone likes it not his latest WrestleMania match is in the record books…

Yet many fans saw the streak as something as eternal as the Undertaker himself and at WrestleMania another would fall as everyone must

It is said that in the business of wrestling when you retire you bow out on a loss as it is meant to allow the “passing of the touch” to the next or younger generation however one could argue (god knows I have) Brock Lesnar can hardly be called the next generation (he is 37 years old for crying out loud) but one can flip the preverbal coin and perhaps argue that to beat the Undertaker on what is considered his own playground can be called a special case…

I wouldn’t imagine and I don’t suppose many people would want to see someone like Kofi Kingston or Shamus taking the streak away so I don’t really fault them for the opponent…

Perhaps because the Undertaker is old school that some of the WrestleMania storylines have allowed some of the past and vanquished opponents to return…I mean he’s faced triple H now three times…

But in the end if the Undertaker has decided to end his career there will be no one that could replace him, the popularity of the dead man is too big…

But our greatest thanks for all the years and memories go with him…Undertaker-editHere’s to the best run in the history of sports entertainment by the greatest to ever step inside the ring but it was the wrong decision to end it whoever made the call needs to answer for it…

Been a fan of the WWE since 2000, watched a few from the early years online, wasn’t a fan of where the “Powers that be” were taking the company but it has gotten better with the brand split, I thought that it was a format that worked
