Leave it to the world's greatest master manipulator to goad one of the biggest stars in wrestling history into one more match. Paul Heyman may have done the unthinkable which is entice Stone Cold Steve Austin to get in a WWE ring for one more time.
It has been just over a week since the streak of the Undertaker officially came to an end, and I am still in a bit of shock. Like many in the WWE Universe I was expecting the Undertaker to continue his ridiculous streak of only wrestling once a year for many years to come.
WWE Wrestlemania 30 took place nine days ago at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Highlights of the show included Daniel Bryan winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and Brock Lesnar ending The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at the biggest wrestling event of the year.
A big question heading into the show was how many people would watch on pay-per-view...
The pro wrestling world continues to remain in a state of shock at Brock Lesnar ending the streak. Yet now that a week has passed, what may be more fascinating than the end of an era may be the details surrounding this shocking result.
Now that Brock Lesnar has made history, the question remains, was he the right guy or was there a better choice along way to 21-1? Let’s take a look.

Now that the WrestleMania 30 dust has settled it is time for the WWE to get cracking on WrestleMania 31. I thought it would be fun to take a look at a potential card a year ahead of time and try and predict a card for the 2014 San Jose event.

In the main event, Daniel Bryan defeated Randy Orton and Batista to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The show featured “The Streak” ending as Brock Lesnar defeating The Undertaker and John Cena defeating Bray Wyatt.
As we do after every Monday Night Raw, let’s give...
In the end, WrestleMania delivered on its promise to make wrestling matter. From the beginning when The Rock, Hulk Hogan, and Steve Austin were all in the ring together, the WWE took it up a few notches for the good of the company and the good of business.
WWE WrestleMania XXX is now in the history books, and while it was an overall disappointment (worth the $9.95 on the WWE Network but not the $50+ on pay-per-view), there were more than a few memorable moments. There were big winners and even bigger losers.
The beast incarnate, the Streak Killer, the monster himself Brock Lesnar vs the new face of the WWE, the leader of the Yes Movement and most all the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan.
“We hate to told you so, but we told you so!” – Paul Heyman, Monday Night Raw April 7, 2014.

The post WWE Monday Night Raw Results From April 7, 2014 appeared first on Between The Ropes.
In perhaps the greatest upset in WrestleMania history, The Undertaker’s streak ended at 21 as he lost Brock Lesnar. The crowd was in a stunned silence when the fall happened as it like it was a dream. The loss didn’t come without some bumps and bruises for “The Deadman”.
ProWrestling.net and The Wrestling Observer that Undertaker was taken to the hospital after WrestleMania...
Did you know that WrestleMania XXX is the first Mania since 2000 to have nobody over the age of 40 win? Undertaker turned 40 in 2005, so you can write off 21 onward through 29. 20 had Flair win, 19 had Hogan, 18 had DDP, 17 had Iron Sheik (in an old-timer's match, but still).
The decision for the WWE to end the streak and thus effectively send off the Undertaker in the sunset was truly what was best for business and to say otherwise is just plain silly.
I really did not see the end of the streak coming. Neither did the 75,000 fans in New Orleans. The WWE better know what ti is doing, but in all seriousness, we never saw this coming. The pain will take some time getting used to and we will wait to see what happens on Monday night.

The WWE ushered in a new era in of stars and broadcast strategy at WrestleMania 30. Many presumed that this year's WrestleMania results would be the most predictable in years. Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker proved them all wrong.
The 30th WrestleMania WWE event is just days away and I thought it would be fun to offer my predictions but with a bit of a twist. Rather than state the obvious I want to take a look at several scenarios that we could see Sunday in NOLA.
