If you were wondering why absolutely everyone seemed so stunned and shell-shocked after the match ended, it’s because they genuinely were.

(Please spare some sympathy for the poor ref, who likely thought for a horrifying few moments he had badly botched the most famous winning streak in wrestling history and that his career was probably over.)

Did McMahon make the right call in deciding the former UFC fighter should go over? I guess it depends on how you look at it.

On one hand, McMahon is absolutely right in thinking that Undertaker should put Lesnar over if this was Undertaker’s last match ever. Lesnar simply has more to offer WWE and its business than The Undertaker does at this point

Of course, whether or not The Streak should have ended coming after one of the flattest and most uninspiring WrestleMania main event buildups ever is another matter entirely.

Could they have made Lesnar look any weaker and more inept going into New Orleans?

If The Streak was going to end, it should have been the culmination of a fantastic, red-hot storyline that kept everyone on the edge of their seats.

It’s a shame that, in the end, it didn’t truly get that.
