As The Undertaker looks to extend his undefeated streak to 22-0 at WrestleMania 30 against Brock Lesnar, I thought it would be a good time to look back at two men who were considered to end the streak.
A couple of years ago, Kurt Angle revealed to WrestleCast, via The Sun in the UK, that Undertaker wanted him to break the streak at WrestleMania 22 in 2006. Angle said that 'Taker pitched the idea to Vince McMahon, since he had never had a five-star match at WrestleMania up until that point. Vince obviously had different ideas, and Mark Henry went on to lose to Undertaker at the event.
Speaking of Henry, former WWE Executive and President of MLW Court Bauer and I discussed the streak on Wrestling Inc. Weekly last year, and Bauer noted that at one point it was discussed to have Henry end the streak. Henry was on a roll as a heel, and Vince said that it might be time for Henry to end the streak. You can listen to Court's comments about the Undertaker's streak in the video above at the 3:30 mark.
