Kane revealed in his hour-long talk that he was angry about how the match between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar went.
“My reaction, when I was watching that, I thought the ending was spoiled. I was like, ‘They’re going to restart the game or something because something went wrong.’ And they did not. I left the room. He was so, he was literally so mad about it. Because, you know, it’s just, and I know the streak wasn’t something that nobody had ever planned and it was something that had evolved organically, but it had become part of the WrestleMania tradition at the time … “
The Undertaker revealed that he was going to the point where he hit the arena that day. But Vince McMahon changed his mind at the last minute.
The Undertaker wanted it to be Roman Reigns
The Undertaker recalls telling the WWE president that Brock Lesnar didn’t need that kind of push. Think that someone else, like Roman Reigns, would have been a better fit for such an iconic moment.
“I got to the arena that day and I was going. I mean, we had come and gone and when I showed up, I was going. And throughout the day, Vince would come to me and tell me that he had changed his mind. Man, I was like, ‘Okay, well,’ I said, ‘I don’t think Brock needs it, but you know, at the end of the day, it’s your show and it’s your decision. And if you’re sure, that’s what we’ll do. “And that’s part of the business. That’s what we do.
“I thought there would be someone like Roman [Reigns]. Roman: I think Roman would have been nice. “
Kane agreed with that, saying that going with Roman Reigns would have “put even more shine on him.”
