Eat. Sleep. Break The Streak. 

Mission accomplished. 

Whether you like it or not, “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will forever be remembered as the man who ended the most storied streak in WWE history. 21-0 is now 21-1. The Undertaker’s winning ways at WrestleMania are over and there’s nothing you can do about it.

You can’t change history. All you can do is learn to accept it.

The likes of Batista, Randy Orton, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Diesel, Kane and CM Punk all fell to “The Deadman” during his infamous run of perfection. It’s a who’s who of some of the biggest stars the industry has ever seen.

Lesnar has surpassed them all. He’s “The One.”

Was having a part-timer defeat Undertaker the right way to go? Who’s to say. There are several up-and-coming superstars the WWE could have given the honor to. The rub they would have gotten from such a victory could have made them a legend overnight.

Even someone with a proven track record who’s committed to the company long-term would have sufficed.

With all due respect to the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, the following five competitors would have been far better choices to seal Undertaker’s WrestleMania fate:


5. Daniel Bryan

We here at reported at the beginning of the year that The Undertaker personally requested to face Daniel Bryan in New Orleans at WrestleMania XXX.

That’s quite the endorsement.

There’s nobody hotter in World Wrestling Entertainment at the moment than Bryan, who ultimately defeated Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton in two matches to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. He didn’t go one-on-one with Undertaker, but Bryan has nothing to complain about as far as his WrestleMania experience went.

The ultimate underdog vs. a man that’s never lost on “The Grandest Stage of Them All.” It writes itself. The reaction from the live audience would have been night and day from the one Lesnar received.

Fans enjoy watching Bryan defy the odds. The buildup to this potential encounter would have been something for the ages, with the payoff being just as sweet.

Then again, Bryan becoming the face of WWE was just as dramatic a moment. You can’t complain.
