Professional wrestling’s greatest streak is over.
The Undertaker lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX Sunday, ending his unbeaten WrestleMania streak at 21 matches.
The streak has been a staple for the pay-per-view event over the past two decades, beginning at WrestleMania VII held in 1991. During his 21-0 run, The Undertaker dispatched opponents such as Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, King Kong Bundy, Triple H and Ric Flair.
But Lesnar proved too much of a challenge, a moment that stunned wrestling fans and personalities. Thousands of fans took to social media, with The Undertaker’s loss becoming a trending topic worldwide.
I am speechless…The Deadman never dies but the streak does. @WWE
