When you bring up some of the most memorable and shocking WrestleMania moments in history, Brock Lesnar conquering The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania XXX in 2014 probably sits firmly at the top of the pile.
It’s something not many saw coming, especially since The Deadman racking up the victories each year at the Grandest Stage of Them All was almost a guarantee. Since then, he’s gone on to defeat Bray Wyatt and Shane McMahon, before suffering a second loss at WrestleMania against Roman Reigns.
CONQUERING THE STREAK
Although, on that occasion, it was more predictable than The Beast Incarnate’s special achievement.
Now, John Cena is looking to add his name to that elite two-name list as he continues to call out The Undertaker for a match at WrestleMania 34 on April 8 in the same venue the actual streak was ended.
Although Cena has been showing plenty of passion and has delivered some entertaining insults along the way to goad The Phenom into a match, he was just like the rest of us four years ago when the referee’s hand hit the mat for the three count and Paul Heyman’s shocked face spoke volumes.
Speaking to ESPN, Cena revealed that he was emotionally moved when the streak was officially broken inside of the Superdome by the current Universal Champion.
According to Wrestling Inc, he said: “At my core, I’m a fan.
“I’m a member of the WWE Universe and I’ve thought about this a lot. I was emotionally moved when the streak was broken. Last year was an emotional performance. Then you get closer and closer to WrestleMania, and you realise it’s not a WrestleMania without The Undertaker.
“You hold the ticket in your hand and you realise a portion of that ticket goes to hearing his music, seeing The Undertaker. That is WrestleMania. I know there will come a day where that changes - I just don’t think it’s now.
“Whether it happens or not, it is officially out of my hands, and I think it’s out of everyone else’s hands except one person.”
At this point, it’s obvious that Cena will go on to battle The Undertaker, especially with Kane attacking him on Monday Night RAW this week with a match being made official between the pair next week.
So, when the match does go ahead, Cena seems confident that despite The Deadman’s age and health, they can both put on a great match for the fans.
He added: “If it does happen, I don’t think anyone who buys a ticket to WrestleMania will walk away throwing the stub in the air going, ‘I wish he wouldn’t have showed up.’ I hope he does. I hope he understands the impact that he has on the current WWE Universe. He is WrestleMania.”
With Cena admitting he was emotional when the streak ended, there might be even more emotional fans if WWE makes the decision to have The Undertaker lose yet another match at WrestleMania.
