That’s funny right there. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube channel in which they show the full match between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker from SummerSlam 2015. This was the first time that they had competed against one another since The Beast ended The Deadman’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania 16 months before.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
The record will show that The Beast has been slain, and the demons of The Undertaker have been laid to rest. The reality, though, is more complicated than that.
Sixteen months after The Phenom’s life’s work was taken from him by Brock Lesnar, The Deadman found redemption in a confrontation that was deemed “Too Big For WrestleMania.” He defeated The Beast Incarnate through a development that was partially a gift from Heaven and partially some magic of the devil himself, with a hefty helping of rulebook jargon to go with it. Officially, yes, The Undertaker won. Whether Brock Lesnar was truly defeated in the purest sense, however, will be a question for historians to decide.
Ironically, The Deadman’s victory — such as it was — snapped another, lesser known streak: A winless stretch against the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.
To some, this will even the score and The Undertaker, spurred by a year’s worth of disgrace, did what he had to do to win. To others, Lesnar is owed satisfaction, wherever and whenever that may come. Officially, The Deadman can claim the victory that has eluded him ever since that fateful night in New Orleans and Lesnar goes home on the losing end. Yet with the question of dominance still unanswered between them, it’s highly unlikely that either The Undertaker, or Brock Lesnar for that matter, will truly rest in peace.
When the Undertaker sat up and started laughing in Brock’s face, I knew that moment would be etched in GIF history forever and ever! This was a war, and I loved every minute of it.
