Few rivalries in WWE match the intensity of Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker. Having first met in 2002, and the infamous Streak-breaking moment at WrestleMania, their rivalry is peppered with some incredible moments. However, in this rivalry, the shocking conclusion that we’ve come to is this: The Undertaker has never beaten Brock Lesnar clean.

Lesnar and the Undertaker only faced each other six times in WWE. John Cena and Randy Orton have wrestled each other close to a hundred times, and their rivalry comes nowhere close to Lesnar vs Undertaker.

These six matches spanned over nearly two decades. They first met in 2002, and they wrestled their final match in 2015.

Taker and Lesnar’s first match ended in a lame double disqualification at Unforgiven 2002. The match was more of a brawl than a standard wrestling match. It was clear they were holding back in order to build to an even bigger match at No Mercy the following month.

The match at No Mercy was the first time Brock Lesnar beat the Undertaker clean. The two met inside Hell in a Cell and literally tore into each other.

Both men bled buckets and used the cell structure to separate flesh from bone. Lesnar targeted Taker’s injured hand, even handcuffing the arm to the cell and smashing it with a steel chair.

The Hell in a Cell victory against The Undertaker was a landmark moment in the young career of Brock Lesnar. However, it wasn’t his biggest victory against the Deadman.

Breaking the Streak

Brock Lesnar faced the Undertaker at WrestleMania 30, and all bets were against Lesnar. There was no way the Beast was breaking the Streak, but what transpired shook the entire wrestling world to its core. Undertaker hoisted Lesnar up for a second Tombstone Piledriver, only for Lesnar to counter and connect with a third and final F5.

The Mercedes Benz Superdome stood up in silence and were awestruck at the 21-1 that flashed on the LED screens. Ending the Streak proved to be the launchpad for Brock Lesnar’s reign of terror on Monday Night Raw. Till 2015, Lesnar was the undisputed king of WWE, until he lost the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.

Lesnar received a rematch for his title at Battleground 2015. He drove Seth Rollins to the mat with a thunderous F5, only for a familiar gong to interrupt the pinfall. The lights went out, and when they came back on, Undertaker was standing face to face with the Beast. He hit Lesnar with a low blow, before planting him with two Tombstone Piledrivers.

A WrestleMania rematch was set for SummerSlam 2015, where the Deadman once more low blowed Lesnar. He then trapped him in the Hells Gate submission, as Brock faded away in the hold. To settle the intense rivalry, both Superstars would make another trip to Hell in a Cell.

The 2015 Hell in a Cell match could not match the violence of the 2002 match, but the intensity was through the roof. Taker tore apart the ring canvas to plant Lesnar atop the wooden boards for a shockingly close nearfall. Undertaker looked to end the match, but Lesnar returned the favour by connecting with a devastating low blow. One more F5, and Brock Lesnar recorded his third clean win over the Deadman.
