Wow. A lot of wrestling fans are upset and pissed off that the WWE had decided to go for Brock Lesnar ending the Undertaker’s undefeated, “Wrestlemania” streak. Wrestling fans have been ranting and crying about it all day in social networking: facebook, twitter, etc.
Ya know, no matter what people think of this move, the WWE just made history. This will be a historic moment that will be talked about years from now. The WWE is happy. They’ll DO whatever it takes to make history. I’m sure they know it’s going to be controversial. I’m sure they know they’re going to take a lot of heat from it from the fans. They’ll do whatever it takes for more ratings and ppv buys. WWE is no stranger to controversy, they’ve done much worse in the past.
I’m probably one of the very few who thinks Brock Lesnar ending ‘Taker’s streak is a good idea. I mean, Undertaker is retiring. What better ways to have Undertaker’s streak ended at one of the biggest ppv’s in history, WM-30? I’m sure fans would want a better choice to end the streak than Lesnar but I think they picked Lesnar ’cause they knew this was going to create a lot of attention. I mean, if somebody else ended ‘Taker’s streak like say Shawn Michaels or Triple H, that would have been too easy and too predictable. I can see why they picked Brock.
It’s interesting how so many people hate Brock Lesnar. I like the guy. Always did. Like Lesnar or hate him, he’s the Mike Tyson of MMA and sports entertainment. “Iron” Mike Tyson and Brock Lesnar are similar in so many ways. Both of those guys have one thing in common. They like to consider themselves as a badass “motherfucker”, ya know what I mean? They both maybe bad guys in sports but they had to do what they had to do to make their dreams come true. I’m sure a lot of people will accuse Brock of not accomplishing much in UFC or WWE but he HAS accomplished a lot. Look at his records through UFC and WWE if you want proof. Lesnar was in the NFL for a little bit too.
Everybody’s upset. Crying about it in social networking and threatening WWE that they’ll quit watching, blah blah blah. I mean, really? This is just a fucking show, kids. JUST A SHOW! I never took anything WWE did seriously ’cause I know it’s fake and scripted. I just watch it for fun ’cause they are good at what they do and I respect them for working hard entertaining people.
I thought Brock was the right choice. Nobody else. It’s understandable why so many hate Brock but that’s what the man always wanted, I think. He wants people to hate him. That is a part of why he’s where he is at now ’cause all the haters helped get him to where he is. This is pretty much how Mike Tyson became a boxing icon ’cause so many people hated him back in the day. Brock is a talented guy, love him or hate him. If he’s getting so many people to hate him, he must be doing something right. He’s the Mike Tyson of this generation.
He’s just a performer and entertainer. I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes after last night.
Undertaker is a backstage leader of WWE. He makes choices of his Wrestlemania opponent so it was his decision to wrestle Brock and his decision to have Brock end the streak. If you watch the match again, you can see ‘Taker instructing Brock what to do. To end the match, you can see ‘Taker telling Brock to end with the F5, his finisher. Everybody wants to blame this on WWE and Vince but this was all ‘Taker’s decision alone. It’s how he wanted to be remembered when he retires. It’s appropriate and makes total sense to end the streak at his last match. The streak can’t last forever. He can’t wrestle every Wrestlemania. He’s gonna grow old and die like the rest of us so he’s gonna hang it up soon. He’s getting old and worn out. His body is too beat up and why he has health problems over the years in his wrestling career.
On top of that, Undertaker had a brilliant run. The streak maybe over but his legacy in wrestling will never die. The Undertaker is one of my favorite’s too. I’ve been watching him for many years. He had many classic matches. He had a 24 year long career so it’s about time for him to hang it up.
I think good things will come for Brock Lesnar after this. Love him or hate him, Lesnar will be a future Hall of Famer ’cause of this.
I’m not upset about this at all ’cause I respect the hell out of the WWE for doing such a risky move. Vince has balls. Can’t deny it. He’ll do anything to give WWE more attention. He doesn’t give a shit.
I know fans want answers on why but why should they explain themselves? “Wrestlemania” is all about making history and that’s what they did.
