According to Michelle McCool, Edge did not want to be the one to break The Undertaker's WrestleMania streak.
A new Undertaker documentary series is coming to WWE Network and it will focus on the most recent years for the heralded Superstar and the inevitable retirement that will eventually come.
One moment in The Undertaker's career that everybody thought was going to be the end was WrestleMania 30, when Brock Lesnar ended Undertaker's undefeated WrestleMania streak.
Speaking with the New York Post, The Undertaker's wife, Michelle McCool opened up about learning the streak was finally going to come to an end and shares another time the ending of the streak was pitched, but vehemently denied by the Superstar who was supposed to break it.
“I did know late in that afternoon that was gonna happen. I couldn’t believe it. I don’t think it needed to happen,” Michelle said. “But, Mark was fine with it. People don’t understand he’s gonna do business. He understands that business is business.”
She continued, “Actually I remember a few years prior that WrestleMania (24) versus Edge they talked about Edge breaking the streak and it was Edge that was actually like, ‘That makes zero sense. I don’t want to do that. Why would I do that? The fans already love him. What’s it gonna do for Edge?’ It was Edge that went to bat for the streak. I know they had talked about it prior to the match with Brock, but you know it happened. It’s fine, it’s not like it’s an end-all, be-all for Mark by any stretch of the imagination.”
Edge and The Undertaker would go on to feud up until the 2008 SummerSlam event where the Undertaker would defeat Edge inside of Hell in a Cell.
Undertaker: The Last Ride will begin airing on WWE Network on Sunday, May 10, 2020.
