For many years The Undertaker’s streak was one of the most exciting aspects of WrestleMania, but at WrestleMania 30 Brock Lesnar defeated The Deadman to end the streak once and for all.
However, before Lesnar came back into the picture there was talk of Mark Henry ending the streak at WrestleMania 22, but Henry told Heavy.com that he didn’t want to carry that weight around.
“It was close. And there was some conversation about me being the one to break the streak. And if they would’ve asked me, I would’ve been like hell no! I don’t want to carry that weight [laughs]…”
During the Q&A Mark Henry also revealed who’s on his Mt. Rushmore of professional wrestling, and he also explained his choices.
“The Undertaker, The Rock, Steve Austin and Ric Flair. And which I bumped Andre off and Andre is the reason why I’m a wrestling fan. I say the reason why I left Andre off is because of the modern era of wrestling what Steve Austin and The Rock did with crossover as well as their in the ring work and their historical reference of what they did in pro wrestling. Andre exists OVER a Mount Rushmore. He was bigger than Mount Rushmore. Andre is not even – he left wrestler status. He left the earthly plane of pro wrestling and he’s like a spirit of it. You can’t mention wrestling without thinking Andre. So he’s bigger than wrestling.”
