Special To NEOSI by Lauren Bell
April 6, 2014. It was at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that evening when an almost lethal combination of F-5’s and German Suplexes was delivered by Brock Lesnar to a beaten and battered Undertaker. It was also the night that The Undertaker’s Streak, the most famous streak in sports entertainment history, was broken by the Beast Incarnate himself.
The world stopped for a brief moment in time, staring silently in shock and disbelief. That event (dare I say it), broke the internet as fans took to social media to vent their frustrations and opinions.
Despite all of the chaos that took place that fateful evening, I myself believe that there were a few people in particular that would have been a better fit for breaking The Streak. Let’s take a look at these superstars and why I selected them in particular:
1. Shawn Michaels – He is the Heart Break Kid. He is the Showstopper. He is Mr. Wrestlemania. He is arguably THE Greatest Superstar in WWE History, but so is The Undertaker. Arguing between the two who is the greatest of all time, is like the heated debate of The Beatles or Michael Jackson for Greatest Artist. He was also on the very first Monday Night Raw, alongside The Undertaker. They both know each other very well and have their history together.
These two are no strangers to each other inside the ring either. From In Your House: Ground Zero, to stealing the show at Wrestlemania 26 in a Streak vs Career match. It would have been a great ending to see two people who watched the WWE evolve throughout the years come full circle and end the streak in a noble fashion between two of the greatest of all time.
