What could have been. There are all kinds of records and accomplishments in WWE history but only a few stand out above the rest. These are the moments and triumphs that are remembered for years to come and it can mean a lot to see one of them either reached or ended. Perhaps the most famous one cane to an end about nine years ago, but it was almost much sooner.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The Battle Continues: WWE Interested In Star Who Appeared On AEW Dynamite
At WrestleMania 30 in 2014, the Undertaker’s 21-0 undefeated streak at WrestleMania came to an end. The Streak, which began in 1991, had seen Undertaker defeat several future Hall of Famers and win multiple World Titles at WrestleMania. However, in an interview with Ariel Helwani on BT Sport, Undertaker revealed that there had been other names considered to break the Streak. This included Vladimir Kozlov, as well as Edge, the latter of whom refused to do it because of his respect for what the Streak meant. Undertaker did not learn of Edge’s decision until years later, which he said says a lot about the kind of person Edge is.
That’s an interesting group. Check out the two of them, plus the Streak breaker, in action:
Opinion: Those would certainly be interesting and while I could see Edge getting the nod, it is a little hard to fathom Kozlov being the one chosen to end the Streak. Maybe WWE had their eye on him at some point but actually going through with it is a bit of a different story. The Streak is something that took on a life of its own in WWE and it is fascinating to see what it almost was instead.
What do you think of these options? Who should have broken the Streak? Let us know in the comments below.
