Justin Roberts Thought Brock Lesnar Ending Undertaker's WrestleMania Streak Was An Accident At First

If you were shocked by the Undertaker's WrestleMania streak ending, you're not alone. The ring announcer wasn't even sure if it was supposed to happen.

The moment ended a streak of over 20 victories at WrestleMania, and brought a hush over the crowd. An unbelievable moment that many didn't see coming. There are varying reports as it pertains to who involved knew exactly what, but ring announcer Justin Roberts told Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV in a recent interview that he had no idea.

"I think back to the Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker match at WrestleMania 30 where Brock ended the streak, I didn't know the outcome. So when I made the announcement, it was a real announcement you know? There was about a minute pause. Usually it's the bell and then the announcement and when the bell rang my stomach dropped. I looked around like 'Is this a mistake?' I didn't know. I just sat there and after a minute Mark Yeaton the timekeeper gave me the cue to make the announcement so I said 'Here's your winner'. I always say that was one of my biggest post match announcements that got the most minimal reaction. It wasn't everybody booing, it wasn't everybody cheering, it was like 'huh?' It was different," said Roberts.

Undertaker would stumble out of the ring, and re-start his WrestleMania legacy the following year. He went on to lose one more WrestleMania match to Roman Reigns in 2017.
