During an interview, The Undertaker opened up about the defeat and explained what would have been idle. According to him, it would have been better if Roman Reigns defeated him instead of The Beast.

“Although, I don’t know if Brock [Lesnar, who defeated Undertaker at WM30] was the right guy. I like Brock, me and Brock are friends. I don’t know that Brock needed that win. Brock was a bona fide superstar at that point. So, I don’t know that he needed it. Roman [Reigns defeating Undertaker at WM33] definitely, that was the right call. I just wish he may have been first. I wish I could have reversed them, you know what I’m saying? If Roman would have been able to do it, I think it would have increased the value.”

The Undertaker doesn’t think anyone can break his streak

While Taker wasn’t completely enthusiastic about his streak breaking, he knew that would happen.

However, even with his streak broken, he doesn’t think anyone can actually break it or even reach that level.

“I mean, it all happens for a reason. Selfishly? Yes. Business-wise? And I’m always business first, it is what it is. I doubt that anybody will ever get to 21-0. My place in history is what it is. I can’t cry over spilt milk.” H/t The Dallas Morning News

With the current roster, it doesn’t seem like anyone can go through 21 WrestleManias without losing to anyone.
