After Raw this past Monday, Taker is surely the favourite again now. It would be a brutal idea to have Lesnar break the streak - win, lose or draw he is as over as he needs to be. IF the streak is ever to be broken, it should be by somebody who is being primed for a major push.

Personally, I hope Taker retires with a perfect record but something tells me he will lose his last Mania match (hopefully not against Cena)

If he loses it will have to be an up and comer to give the "rub", having Cena win would do nothing to elevate him any further and would probably push him to the heel side/more despised.

It only makes sense for Lesnar to show fear, however I don't like it either.

Taker is looking old but to anyone who thinks Brock is breaking the streak, it ain't happening.
Monday Night Raw proved the when Lesnar went over on Taker this past week.

The one thing he had over Austin, Rock, Hogan, etc was the streak at 'Mania. Now, it's gone!!!

I can see if it had been Michaels, or Helmsley, even Punk....but LESNAR???

Even Cena beating 'Taker would have been more plausible than this. They couldn't let 'Taker win the way Cena did at Extreme Rules two years ago.

Oh...the iwc will be buzzing tomorrow with 20,000 word dissertations on why this is so wrong and bad.

I've got to believe this was Taker's choice. Vince okayed it. I'm not sure what it was supposed to accomplish, but they did it.

If either Orton retains or Batista wins the WWE World title, we may actually see a riot at the SuperDome, after THIS MESS!!

Now there's nothing sacred. First we have a MITB winner fail to win a title. But that pales in comparison to this. Why couldn't they just have 'Taker barely win this one? Even if Lesnar dismembered him afterwards, the streak is the only thing 'Taker had that was as valuable as a long title reign (or multiple title reigns) that the other guys had.

THIS SUCKS!!

Not to say "I told ya so," but...

Karl pretty much called it, as well. Undertaker is an Old School guy. This was probably his last match. In a podcast, shortly before he passed, Paul Bearer mentioned that Taker's body was wrecked form all the pounding and wouldn't wrestle for much longer.

I knew 'Taker was on his last leg. But, he could have passed the torch by having Lesnar destroy him after losing this match. Austin got over at WM13, despite losing to Bret Hart.

As I said, the one thing 'Taker had over Hogan, Warrior, Rock, Austin, Cena, Michales, Hart, et. al. was the streak. Taker putall those guys over and made them. The Streak was sacred. And, if 'Taker was going to pass the torch to somebody by losing at WrestleMania, it could have been to a true hand like Punk, Cena, even Helmsley. But a part-timer like LESNAR? Good GRIEF!!!

Absolute bullshit, Lesnar didn't deserve this in the slightest, I can't believe they let part-time Brock take the streak.  Up until then it had been a solid WM as well, but this killed the whole show for me.

I sincerely hope so, otherwise this was the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen from them.  What reason is there to give it to Brock?  Just to shock the audience?  To get it trending on frigging Twatter?  It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if this was done to spike the social media ratings and get people to buy the Network so that they can watch the fallout tomorrow night.

Guys You always go out on your back. Taker is very old school. I would expect him to come out on Raw tomorrow night and give a speech.
Just think now there will be interviews and DVDs with him which we have never gotten before.

PLEASE!!

As I said, at least they could have let 'Taker lose to a true hand. The fact that he jobbed to Lesnar, who'll probably leave in six months and may not wrestle on TV for another month is disgusting.

They let Edge retire as World champion, for goodness sake (injury notwithstanding).

Having Lesnar destroy 'Taker after WrestleMania would have done much the same thing. Heck, they got Austin over Bret Hart without Austin EVER beating Hart by pin or submission.
