The Undertaker’s streak is one of the biggest and most historic moments in the pro-wrestling industry. The Streak was a big part of WrestleMania because beating Undertaker was like earning an irreplaceable championship belt that could only be won once. It was more important than the World Heavyweight Championship and the WWE Championship combined.

However, exceptional attraction can only endure so long. Before WrestleMania XXVII, Undertaker left the main roster to work as a part-timer. He was getting on in years and could only manage a certain amount of work before his body gave out. His days were limited, but the Streak had grown so legendary that no one could terminate it unless the firm was certain that this victor represented the company’s future. Then, one year later, Undertaker issued a challenge to Brock Lesnar.

Both the man battled hard! Twenty-five minutes into the match, Taker had control of the bout and was on his way to finishing Lesnar. But “The Beast Incarnate” turned a Tombstone into even another F5. Yet every fan in the world was expecting Undertaker to kick out. Yet there was no happiness among the WWE Universe. The Mighty Undertaker got struck out. No one believed “The Streak” had been broken. It was 21-1.

’21-1′ – Paul Heyman reveals Brock Lesnar’s decision to end the streak

The Special Counsel to the Tribal Chief opens up about the original plan for Wrestlemania XXX, and how Brock Lesnar found out he would be facing The Undertaker instead of CM Punk. While talking with InsideTheRopes, Heyman talked about the original idea behind Brock Lesnar breaking the streak.

Heyman said, “People are intrigued by Brock Lesnar vs CM Punk, why don’t we extend this to WrestleMania, and that was the first time we ever heard this idea.”

Paul Heyman imitates [Vince McMAhon], “Well I have a different vision for you (Brock Lesnar) at WrestleMania Brock”.

Heyman also, talked about how frustrated Lesnar became till Vince told him who his opponent will be at WrestleMania. Heyman continued imitating Lesnar as he asked Vince, “Okay! Vince, who am I working with at WrestleMania and Vince looks at Brock in the eyes and says, The Undertaker.”

After this conversation, Heyman and Lesnar went to his bus and Heyman heard a phrase he never heard before. Heyman asked Lesnar what does he think about his match with Taker, “I said what do you think, Taker huh! Going to work with Taker at WrestleMania and it was the first time ever heard the phrase and Brock just sat there, he was just sitting there and he was just you know staring we’re sitting at a table in his bus and Brock just looked up and he went 21& 1. I’m (Brock Lesnar) the one and I went Holy sh**, 21-1”

“How do we make that happen and Brock just said, that’s what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna conquer that fu***** streak in WrestleMania.”
