AEW Star Says WWE Wasted The End Of The Undertaker’s Streak

The Undertaker Brock Lesnar WrestleMania 30

One AEW personality that knows a little something about The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak says WWE made the wrong decision to end it the way they did.

The Streak began in 1991 at WrestleMania 7 when The Undertaker defeated Jimmy Snuka. The following year WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts became the second of 21 victims who all lost on the Grandest Stage of Them All to The Undertaker.

The Undertaker finally lost at WrestleMania 30 when he was defeated after three F-5s by Brock Lesnar in 2014 to the shock of everyone watching.

Now speaking on his DDP Snake Pit podcast – courtesy of AdFreeShows – Jake Roberts has blasted WWE for ending The Streak the way they did:

“No, they did not [make the right decision.] Why waste it? Because it wasn’t needed. Lesnar was already a monster, right? He was a badass, he was a monster. He didn’t need that push. If [they’d] have done it with somebody that wasn’t at that level, then I’d say ‘Okay, yeah, that’d be good.’ Because you’re bringing somebody up. To do it with a guy that’s equal with you, you haven’t accomplished anything but waste the opportunity to get somebody over.”

Jake Roberts followed up by suggesting another name besides Lesnar that could have ended The Streak, the second man to defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania, Roman Reigns:

“If you’d have done it with Roman Reigns, yeah. That would’ve been something. But, to get the most out of that, you’ve gotta bring somebody that’s down here, up to here. That’s how you get a sustainable pop. You know what they got out of that the way they did it? Disgust.”
