For 21 years, there were three certainties in life: death, taxes and The Undertaker winning at WrestleMania.
The streak had now become synonymous with the occasion, and it was just as anticipated as any world championship bout every year. Vince McMahon knew he could rely on the Phenom to bring his massive event to life.
That is why his loss at WrestleMania 30 to Brock Lesnar remains as shocking as it was at the time.
The crowd went silent as The Beast Incarnate ascended the ramp, basking in the signature victory of his career while a vanquished Deadman lay motionless in the middle of the ring.
The Streak’s retirement was met with a furious reaction on social media, with fans likening it to the end of their youth. It became an event in time that was picked up by major media and reported on as if it were a real sporting event.
For so many people, The Streak was significant. For some, the fact that the Beast became the one in 21-1 meant equally as much as it did for fans.
