Finally, Brock Lesnar concluded The Undertaker’s streak at WrestleMania 30, and it is one of the most surprising moments in WWE history.
Ex-WWE star Ricardo Rodriguez spoke about the ringside reaction to the match’s finish during an interview with Jon Alba for AdFreeShows.com. Ricardo was at the Spanish announcer’s desk when Brock pinned The Undertaker, and he was admittedly surprised by the bout’s outcome.
Unlike him, Rodriguez informed that his broadcast partner Carlos Cabrera knew about the planned ending in advance. The former WWE manager was confused as Brock’s theme wasn’t played immediately after the last pinfall. Rodriguez recalled how almost every startled fan in the stadium remained silent after Brock defeated the streak:
“The only one that knew was Carlos Cabrera; he’s the only one that knew. When the pin happened, I thought that The Undertaker was going to kick out; that’s what I thought happened. They didn’t play the music or anything, and I was about to speak, and then Carlos just grabbed my hand, and I looked at him, and he knew. That was such a surreal moment; the whole arena went quiet for how big of a moment, nobody reacted, everybody stayed quiet.” (H/t – WrestlingInc)
Instead of Brock Lesnar, should Bray Wyatt have broken The Undertaker’s streak?

Vince recently informed why Bray Wyatt would have been the ideal wrestler to end the streak. The former WWE writer felt Bray Wyatt had all the tools to become the next Undertaker.
Here’s what Vince spoke about the missed chance on a recent ‘Writing with Russo’ episode:
