Undertaker defeated at Wrestlemania XXX

The Undertaker’s legendary WrestleMania streak came to an end Sunday night at the hands of Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker, at the age of 49, had won 21 consecutive matches on the sport’s biggest stage, and his win streak seemed to be untouchable. He kicked out of a number of finishing moves from Lesnar, and as the match dragged on, it seemed inevitable that The Undertaker would hit one of his signature tombstone piledrivers, and the Superdome crowd — which had been booing Lesnar the entire match — would erupt to celebrate 22-0.

Instead, Lesnar hit one last F5, and the streak was gone in three seconds. Fans were shocked.

WrestleManiaXXX host Hulk Hogan transported thousands of fans to their childhood, kicking off the festivities. Then Stone Cold Steve Austin appeared, followed by Miami’s own The Rock. They blew people’s minds by standing in the same ring together. It was the biggest star of the 1980s with the most popular performers of the 1990s and into the new millennium. The cross-generational moment set the tone for the evening’s proceedings with the coolest beer bash in history.
