Edge Details Why He Didn't Want To End The Streak, Says Brock Lesnar Didn't Need It

Undertaker entered WrestleMania 24 and his match with Edge, 15-0 at WrestleMania. The Streak had become synonymous with WrestleMania and one of the drawing cards with fans hooked on the moment to see if it would live on.

According to Edge, there was a thought of him ending the Streak at WrestleMania 24, but he didn't think he needed that accolade.

"My reasoning was, if I'm looking at the WrestleMania card, we need the Streak," said Edge on Busted Open Radio. "You have the title matches, I'm looking at the strength of the card, if I end the Streak, then next year we don't have the Streak as a calling card on WrestleMania. It became more important than the title matches, almost. It's arguable. To me, it shouldn't have ended until his final match. You pick the person, I said for years, 'Let it be Roman and that is the true passing of the torch.' It didn't end up that way. I didn't feel I needed it. By that point, I was already established and a made man. Brock Lesnar didn't need it, he was already made. Put that label 'I ended Undertaker's streak' on a new player that you know is going to be one of your workhorses and take that company into the next generation."

Brock Lesnar ended up breaking the Streak at WrestleMania 30. Roman Reigns would later defeat Undertaker at WrestleMania 33. Those are the two blemishes on The Undertaker's WrestleMania, which sits at 25-2.

Elsewhere during the interview, Edge discussed his WWE Backlash match with Randy Orton. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
