Is this why The Undertaker's streak ended?

Published Add your comment

The Undertaker's streak was ended by Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania XXX last week, much to the shock of near enough every single wrestling fan in the WWE universe.

Among all the conspiracy theories surrounding the loss that made it 21-1, a new one has emerged.

Did Taker lose to Lesnar in an attempt to boost the WWE's ailing stock prices on the market. Well that's the belief of one CEO.

Speaking to Yahoo Finance, Brian Sozzi, CEO of equity research firm Belus Capital Advisors, said that he believed the deadman's loss was to aid the company on the NASDAQ.

From Wrestling Inc.com:

"Sozzi noted the weaker-than-expected Network subscription numbers, and feels that The Undertaker's streak was sacrificed to bolster post-WrestleMania Network registrations.

Sozzi also provided some advice to the company and suggested an off-season, strengthening the drug policy (noting the relaxation of the Therapeutic Use Exception and the three strikes policy last summer) and to take better care of retired wrestlers."

Vince McMahon and co. have been really struggling ever since news of poor WWE Network uptake was announced. 

The stock in the company has fallen 33% since the company announced on Monday that they only had 667,000 subscribers to it's new Network channel that provides all Pay-Per-View events and content for $10 a month.

WWE stock fell again today as well, going down 3.93% to $20.29. 

It's an interesting theory from Sozzi. What do you think about his claims? Tell us below.
