WWE fans tune in to WrestleMania every single year to watch one thing, The Undertaker defeat any challenger standing in his way.

The greats in Shawn Michaels and Triple H have all failed over the years yet last night at WrestleMania XXX - the thirtieth anniversary of the event - the streak was broken.

Brock Lesnar was the latest challenger The Undertaker and his streak; and beforehand fans already played down his threat, and that the streak would never die.

But unfortunately that day has come and the streak is over, 21-1 courtesy of Brock Lesnar. It was a brilliant match to say the least, a slower pace as expected but the intensity grew as both men looked more and more dangerous as we saw Old School attempts from The Undertaker; only for The Beast to battle back time and time again.

We saw Lesnar viciously beat down The Deadman time and time again but The Undertaker also refused to stay down and was determined to keep his streak intact - for a while longer anyway.

Brock Lesnar fought back to keep The Undertaker at bay - as Paul Heyman continued to pep talk his client and best friend into not giving up and getting what belongs to him.

Of course, we all refused to believe it, as we continued to believe that it is all just a method to consume time or to make The Undertaker's victory look that much sweeter, that much more impressive. 

Lesnar looked to be in trouble a couple of more times as The Undertaker locked in the Hells Gate numerous times before The Undertaker was caught into Lesnar's vicious arm bar.

Still no luck for either man and The Undertaker even locked in Lesnar's arm bar on Lesnar; a match which became better as time went on.

But The Undertaker grew tired and ate one F5 too many, the third F5 was the final blow as silence struck the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, a three count and the streak was over, just like that.

75,000 fans packed out the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, and not one was smiling or cheering. But pure silence amongst the capacity crowd as they too couldn't believe what they were seeing, something we never thought would happen finally happened on this night. Brock Lesnar ended the streak.

Lesnar and Heyman couldn't believe it themselves, Heyman reassuring Lesnar that he has finally done it as Lesnar smiled cynically, knowing he has upset the millions who believed in 'Taker and the streak.

Many of the fans' predictions will now be wrong as they - for the first time ever - are forced to acknowledge that The Undertaker has lost.

The Undertaker received a standing ovation from all 75,000 of the fans, including staff, commentators and even fans at home, knowing this will never be replicated; a fitting way to leave the arena, albeit in disbelief.

So what do we do now? Will a new streak begin? Will Lesnar continue his dominance? Even as a part-timer?

More importantly, is this the last we see of The Undertaker?

21-1. Just let that sink in.
