Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague has revealed that whilst being a huge WWE fan, he was left disappointed by the organizations decision to end The Undertaker’s streak at the hands of Brock Lesnar.
According to sources in the U.S the NBA star believes there were plenty of more suited wrestlers out there who would have been better options when it came to putting a 1 one after the 21 on The Undertaker’s WrestleMania record, despite the fact that Lesnar is a former UFC World Heavyweight champion. The fateful match on April 6 attracted the attention of the masses, who tuned in to see Lesnar upset the apple cart and end his opponent’s infamous streak. For his part however, Teague believes it was the wrong move.
When asked if he was still miffed by the outcome (Teague Tweeted his annoyance shortly after the bout) the Hawks star said: “I am! I am mad about that. I can’t believe they did that, man.
“Yeah, they could have picked somebody better than that. The could’ve got CM Punk, anybody. But I think it was a mistake. I don’t think it was supposed to happen like that.”
The attention has largely now shifted to who the WWE will choose to step into a ring with Lesnar next. Certain rumours suggest Stone Cold Steve Austin could be primed for a shock return to action, though they have yet to be confirmed or denied.
