The full story of the Undertaker-Brock Lesnar match will probably come out publicly in a few weeks when the Shawn Michaels interview with Jim Ross airs on Podcast One. As noted before, Vince McMahon was the one that made the decision to have Taker lose the match and that was a decision that was made very late. The original plan was for Brock Lesnar to lose. Privately people are saying that it was the wrong decision because they believe that The Undertaker will be back next year and the streak was one of the big attractions at WrestleMania but they’ve killed that. Nobody is willing to say that publicly. Shawn Michaels might say that though since he’s not one to worry about what people will say to him since he’s bulletproof.
One thing to note, when Vince made the call to have Undertaker lose he did it because he did think it could be Taker’s last match because of how bad his shoulder and hip injuries were.
