The moment the Undertaker lost his WrestleMania streak is one that ranks amongst the most dramatic in WWE history.

Coming into the match against Brock Lesnar in 2014 the Deadman was on a 21-0 run dating all the way back to 1991 and fans thought he would never be beaten on the big stage.

As we all know Lesnar was indeed the man to shock the world with a victory over the ageing Superstar. But now WWE legend Jim Ross has revealed a surprising story about the run up to the event itself.

Speaking in Manchester, England during a recent tour of the U.K. Jim Ross told a captivated audience that, such was Brock Lesnar's belief that he shouldn't be the man to end the streak, he actually asked the WWE to change the planned result and make him lose the match.

As the packed out WrestleMania XXX arena (not to mention the millions watching on TV) can attest to, the WWE rejected Lesnar's concerns and carried out their plan to add a solitary 1 to The Undertaker's 'Mania record.

Right to worry?

Much of Brock Lesnar's reputation since has been build upon the fact he became the man to do what no other had done before him and defeat the invincible. The fact that he didn't have confidence in himself to be the man to break such a record diminishes his position as The Beast Incarnate somewhat.

In fairness to Lesnar, the idea that The Undertaker would ever be beaten on the WrestleMania stage was such a crazy one that you can't blame him for having second thoughts about how it would be received by the WWE Universe.

To do this day some fans still argue The Undertaker's streak should have been left intact, or at least broken by a man with which he had shared a long-lasting feud. The WWE, though, had other ideas.

Lesnar, although still only a part-time wrestler by contract, now stands as the most feared wrestler in the WWE and has been build up as a truly monster on the ring. Whether that would have been possible had he not beaten The Undertaker is unlikely.
