Jim Ross Comments on the End of the Undertakerís Streak
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.07.2014



- Jim Ross has posted a new column over at foxsports.com , discussing WrestleMania 30. Here is an excerpt, where Ross discusses the Undertaker losingÖ
The Streak is over. Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker to hang the first WrestleMania loss on the Deadman, who is now 21-1 at WWE's biggest event.

The outcome of this physical, ground and pound, human demolition derby stunned the massive crowd at the Superdome no less than if New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw a game-ending pick-six.

For a moment after the decision was rendered the 'Dome felt like the world's largest morgue. On a personal note, I never thought The Streak would be broken and now I know how Alabama fans felt after the 2014 Sugar Bowl. (Sorry, but I'm an unabashed Oklahoma Sooner fan.)

In my opinion the Undertaker will always be the conscience of WWE and with The Streak ending, it will fuel speculation that Taker's storied Hall of Fame career may be at its end.

I assume the decision to end the Undertaker's 21-0 winning streak is based on two factors:

One, the physical status of the 49-year-old rugged veteran, who has been surgically put back together on multiple occasions and may be in more physical jeopardy than we know. Not even Dr. Frankenstein could reassemble The Deadman.

Secondly, it seems as if WWE is recommitting its marketing machine to better monetize the potential of the amazingly gifted Lesnar, who has never gotten on a roll since returning to WWE after being forced to retire due to issues with diverticulitis.
