Vince McMahon talked about the end of The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania 30 in his interview with Steve Austin that aired Monday night on the WWE Network.
Below is a recap of our coverage by Sean Hopkins:
Austin says when he was making his rounds, he talked with Undertaker. He remembers being at WM30, watching the match with two beers in his hands, and the Undertaker losing. Austin couldn’t believe his eyes. How, when, and why was the decision made.
Vince says no one wants to give back to the business more than the Undertaker, Mark Calloway. He says there comes a time to do that, and who else at that time could Undertaker possibly work with, and give back to make a star. There was no one on the roster the year before, and it was timing. The person Mark thought was Lesnar. Austin calls BS and says Vince made the decision, and Vince says of course he did. Vince says Taker loves to give back though, and it was a shock to everyone, but that was on him. Those decisions aren’t easy to make, but that’s his job, and he thinks he made the right call at the right time. Brock Lesnar couldn’t be any hotter than he will be going into next year’s Mania, reminding fans about beating the streak.
