Professional wrestling is a fake sport, but that doesn’t hide the fact that the wrestlers put their bodies on the line day in and day out to entertain the fans. Just like a weekly episodic TV sitcom or drama series, wrestling shows present weekly shows incorporating several storylines moving simultaneously towards their climax.
With a history spanning several decades, wrestling has given its fans countless moments to cheer for. There have been some moments over the years that took the cake when it came to providing the shock factor. Here are ten of those wrestling moments that shocked the world.
10Brock Lesnar breaks The Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak
WrestleMania is the Undertaker’s yard. It has defined his career since the very first time he laced up the boots for his match against Jimmy Snuka at WrestleMania 7.
A bunch of wins followed this one and around two decades later, the streak had reached an impressive 21-0, with legends such as Shawn Michaels, Triple-H, Ric Flair and Edge falling prey to the Undertaker at the Show of Shows.
Fans at the Superdome at WrestleMania 30 were waiting for the pin which would take the streak to 22-0, but a 3rd F-5 from Brock put Taker down and the pin sealed the deal!
70,000 plus fans inside the stadium as well as millions watching at home were left dumbstruck at what they had just witnessed.
The greatest streak in sports entertainment history had finally died.
