Live Report From The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar At WWE WrestleMania XXX, The Streak, More

Thanks to PWMania.com reader Andy Badwool for sending this in:

I was in attendance at WrestleMania 30 sitting in the Lower Level section at the Superdome in the side that faces the stage (so the one behind the announce table), and something very strange happened regarding the Streak match.

Right after The Undertaker completed his entrance, when the match was about to start, for a split second a big white “0” number graphic appeared inside the “X” on the right (of the three XXX) of the WrestleMania XXX stage. It appeared for just a split second and then it disappeared. I checked back and it wasn’t shown on TV as cameras were focused on the ring.

Me and my friends all saw it and made it notice to who was sitting near us, and the impression we all got was “they just spoiled the match!” thinking that was a test/mistake for showing the 0 of the 22-0 graphics that would then appear on the three XXX at the end of the match. But obviously, that didn’t happen as Taker lost the match.

So the appearance of that 0 could mean different things – one of the things we initially thought was that the match wasn’t supposed to end like that and the Streak was actually supposed to continue, that maybe Undertaker could no longer continue and they called an audible, but on second thought we realized they wouldn’t let something as big as this end in a botch.

So what it actually could mean is that not even the production team knew the outcome of the match, at least not before the match started, as clearly the 22-0 graphic was ready to go/being tested before the match started. It could be possible that the production team was informed of the 21-1 only minutes before the match ended, that would also explain the “thrown-together” simple 21-1 graphic that was made to appear on the titantron.

    Ah what load of bull, Brock was supposed to win end of story

      Did anyone here dispute that plumhead? From reports after mania, the production team not knowing the outcome before the match is plausible, which as he states, explains the simple graphic on the trons rather than on the main stage as in previous mania’s.

      Might even be why it took them a minute to get it up, because someone was told to do it the moment the hand went down for the three.

        it was all on purpose to make us think that or the guy who puts the picture on the tron fell asleep, theres no way the production team didnt know the outcome

          There’s every chance, they worry about anything leaking at all, never mind something as massive as the streak ending. If they knew, they didnt find out before Mania started, I am sure of it.

          Also, go and read the report that Sable didnt know until the morning of Mania, if that is true, and Brock didnt get word until the morning, then the chances of the crew finding out any sooner is none.

    Or they double crossed everyone there by putting that up – and confirming in your minds that Undertaker would win, so when the streak was conquered by Paul Heyman and his client you would be even more surprised?
    CONSPIRACY!

    I was there too. After the pin, the tron went completely white for a couple minutes before the 21-1 even came up.

  • I Hate You All

    All you idiots are just imagining things, because it never happened!!! Taker is still undefeated at Wrestlemania, so please get some mental help for your poisoned brainwashed minds!!! It’s all in your heads!!!

    I find it odd that this is the only report on the situation, it’s coming a month later, and there is no video of it happening anywhere. I would believe that not many people backstage knew the outcome until just before the match, but I just can’t believe this story until I see evidence.
