FORMER UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar ended the unbeaten Wrestlemania streak of The Undertaker at 21, shocking fans from around the world in World Wrestling Entertainment’s annual spectacle on Sunday in New Orleans (Monday Manila time).
Lesnar, who was once a mixed martial arts fighter and former UFC champion, nailed his signature finishing move “F5,” a lift-spin-and-throw move, after countering The Undertaker’s variation of the piledriver called the “Tombstone” in the 30th edition of Wrestlemania.
In the main event, Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Heavyweight title beating Fil-American wrestler Batista and Randy Orton.
But the loss of The Undertaker, Mark Calaway in real life, stole the show after putting a stop to the streak that started in Wrestlemania VII in 1991.
Filipino wrestling fans were also in shock with The Undertaker’s defeat as it became a trending topic in the Philippines on Twitter.
“@WWE lost a lot of fans when they decided to end the streak of the Undertaker. I am still in shock,” wrote one on Twitter.
“I just think #BrockLesnar wasn't the right guy to break the #Undertaker streak. #bitter #WresleMania30 #WWE,” wrote another WWE fan.
“The Undertaker just lost at #WrestleMania. Goodbye, childhood,” wrote another Undertaker fan.
Charles Tiu, former Barako Bull assistant coach and brother of Rain or Shine cager Chris, also had his take on the defeat and wrote: “So sad to hear Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak is over. after 22 years! My favorite wrestler together with Ken Shamrock!”
