The Undertaker to retire following Wrestlemania 30 loss to Brock Lesnar?

According to an Apr. 7 report from USA Today, one of the most shocking moments in Wrestlemania history occurred last night in New Orleans, as Brock Lesnar snapped The Undertaker's 21-year Wrestlemania win streak.

The Undertaker, 49, began his Wrestlemania win streak way back in 1991, by defeating "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka.

Since his debut at Wrestlemania VII, The Undertaker has defeated a who's who of opponents at Wrestlemania events, including Ric Flair and CM Punk.

WWE Universe learned last night that all good things must come to an end, as The Undertaker was shockingly pinned by Lesnar after more than 20 minutes of heated back-and-forth action at Wrestlemania 30.

Following The Undertaker's loss, he walked off into the sunset to a rousing applause from the 70,000 fans in attendance at the Superdome in New Orleans.

Is this the end of the line for The Undertaker? Time will tell how the situation plays out, but there's a couple different ways the WWE could play it.

On one hand, they could script The Undertaker to come back next year for a rematch with Lesnar, and send him into retirement with a victory.

On the other hand, the WWE might want Lesnar to be the new face of the WWE now that he snapped Undertaker's win streak.

At next year's Wrestlemania main event, the WWE might want to feature Lesnar against another WWE superstar, possibly Daniel Bryan or John Cena.

The Undertaker will be 50 years old by the time the next Wrestlemania rolls around, and he has had multiple surgeries over the years.

Father Time is catching up to The Undertaker, so it might be best for him to hang up the gloves for good. If this is really the end of the line for The Undertaker, he wraps up his Wrestlemania career with a 21-1 record.

Should The Undertaker retire following his loss to Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30? Should the WWE bring The Undertaker back for a rematch with Lesnar at the next Wrestlemania? Let us know in the comments or tweet the author, @BadNewsEric.
