Randy Orton Says Undertaker vs Roman Reigns Is The Real Main Event; It Was 'Wrong' For Taker To Lose The Streak

Randy Orton is facing Bray Wyatt for the WWE Title on Sunday at WrestleMania, but according to him, that shouldn't be the Main Event of the evening.

And neither should Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar, either.

No, the Viper firmly believes that the honor of closing Mania 33 should go to The Dead Man vs The Big Dog.

In fact he, pretty much thinks that whatever match is featuring The Undertaker, that's the most important match at any Mania. "I think Taker and 'Mania go hand in hand," Orton said, adding: "Taker is going to face Roman Reigns and that's going to be a good one. I honestly believe that should be the last match on the card, I think that everybody will be happy with the outcome of the match. I expect the Undertaker to throw Roman Reigns around like a rag doll. Roman Reigns is going to get his, but at the same time, this is the Undertaker we're talking about.

"Will [Undertaker] be around after this? If this is his last one and there's speculation, all I can say is I hope not. Whether it was twenty years ago or today, when he comes to the ring and the gong hits and the music plays, the energy in the arena, it's not like that for anyone else. I don't care if its [John] Cena, Shawn Michaels or whoever, it's a different kind of energy and he's got more respect from the fans than I think any character or superstar has ever had in our business."

Orton didn't shy away from his true feelings regarding the breaking of the streak. Taker, of course, was undefeated through his first 21 matches at "The Showcase of the Immortals", before losing to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30 in 2014. In Orton's opinion, that was just plain bad booking.

"It's unfortunate that he picked up a loss a few years back, I think that was wrong and I think everyone would agree with me for the most part with the exception of maybe Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. I don't believe that that loss tarnished his career, I just hate that his streak was tarnished."
