I think Cesaro bodyslamming Big Show over the top rope and winning the battle royal 'made' him at WM.

I picked Bray Wyatt in the poll. I think he and the writers would have also been able to turn it into some great promos, much like Paul E's promo last night on RAW.

I voted for Orton. I'm not talking about at WMXXX, I think he should have beaten Taker at WM21.

Hated thought of an unproven talent defeating UT & would rather he have kept 'Streak' going into retirement instead of a nobody winning. At least Brock's not a nobody & it sounds good when people hear about UT finally losing that its at least a legit badass who defeated him

Some of us have been fans forever but remember that UT 'Streak' has been going on longer than most people have been fans

The more I think about it, the  more Brock was the right choice.

Wasn't too keen on the idea right after it happened, but if it was going to happen it makes sense. One, Undertaker is a known huge MMA mark, of course Lesnar would be his pick. Two, lets say it would've been Reigns or Wyatt, and in a year they flame out and don't amount to much, then 'Taker lost and his undefeated record was ended by a nobody. Three, Lesnar is a legit badass and that won't be changing anytime soon no matter how much or little he wrestles going forward. It "makes sense" that he could be the guy to end the streak, and in doing so they can build the next few WrestleMania's with him being a badass and guys trying to beat him.

Brock was the right choice if they've signed him for a few more years. Put the belt on him by SummerSlam and have him be an ass kicking machine for a year or so as champion. There's good money there.

PWInsider:

WWE issued a survey to certain members of their mailing lists, seeking feedback on Wrestlemania. The survey asked whether you subscribed to the WWE Network prior to Wrestlemania, how you watched the show, which matches you liked and which matches you were happy with the result of.

Most interesting, WWE asked fans whether they were happy with the end of The Undertaker's streak. One of the follow-up questions was who should have ended the streak, with the choices being:
Brock Lesnar... I was happy with the outcome!
Hulk Hogan
Triple H
Roman Reigns
Shawn Michaels
Damian Sandow
Steve Austin
Daniel Bryan
John Cena
No one.


Yes, Damien Sandow.

Yeah I got the survey. I picked Lesnar Out of these choices. I would rather see the streak not broken. However I think Lesnar was the right choice since his MMA Past and his first WWE Run. In a Regular match I can see Reigns and Wyatt getting a win but not on Mania.

Bray Wyatt after 6 weeks of back and forth mind games.

I still think Taker and Kane should work one last tag team match (maybe at Mania 31) and call it a career together.

Taker taped/is taping a podcast with Austin though, so it seems he really is done.

originally, i thought brock breaking it was insane. after a few days to marinate, i am cool with it.

honestly, i would have gone with bray, just because of the angles with the similarities in their characters having dark sides.

I picked Lesnar as well. Undertaker is near 50. Yes he's older than Hogan was when wrestling marks started crying for him to put over younger talent even though he put over Warrior and Yokozuna when he was still in his prime. Taker is known more for his size and power than his technical wrestling so who better to defeat him than a younger more powerful man. And enough with Brock walked out of the company. Hogan walked out on Vince Sr to film Rocky 3 and look how that turned out. Roman Reigns hasn't proven shit so why is every one chanting for him to break it. Lesnar paid his dues weather you want to believe it or not.

I agree i think they picked the wrong guy because of his track record. but on the other hand Taker would not want to lay down for someone who wasn't looked at as a badass huge guy.

At one point in time (years ago) thought it would be Cena breaking the streak. I was surprised UT beat Triple H two years in a row. Otherwise I think the whole thing fell into their lap (somewhere around 9-0) and then they just kept booking it to continue.
