Edge Names Who Should Have Ended The Undertaker’s Streak

Edge The Undertaker

It was one of the most shocking moments in wrestling history when the referee’s hand hit the mat for the third time at WrestleMania 30 indicating that Brock Lesnar had finally conquered The Undertaker’s Streak.

For two decades, The Deadman went undefeated on The Grandest Stage of Them All putting away opponents such as Jake Roberts, Kane, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk, the entirety of Evolution, and Edge.

But in New Orleans in 2014, the thousands of WWE fans in attendance were left in stunned silence when The Undertaker finally lost to Lesnar. Three years later, The Undertaker suffered the only other WrestleMania loss of his illustrious career when he was put away by Roman Reigns.

Speaking on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast, Edge noted that he thinks the project to turn Roman Reigns into an otherworldly superstar could have been started sooner if he’d been the one to end The Undertaker’s Streak:

“Yes, I do. And the only reason I say that is because I don’t think Brock needed it. He was already a world-beater. He was already UFC Heavyweight Champion. He was already all of these things whereas Roman was just on the cusp. If he were the first guy, oh man! I mean, obviously, it still worked out pretty well [for Roman]. But I think it could’ve sped it up.”

Reigns struggled to gain fan support as WWE insisted on him remaining a good guy throughout this time. His fortunes changed in 2020 when after a short hiatus from the company due to the pandemic, Reigns returned and shed his Big Dog persona to become the unbeatable Tribal Chief.
