The Undertaker Recaptures Power Struggle Against Brock Lesnar With Summerslam Win; The Deadman Retiring After Next Year’s Wrestlemania 32?
The Undertaker beyond doubt settled a more than personal score with Brock Lesnar in the recent WWE “Summerslam.” “The Deadman” reestablished himself as the true phenom with a vicious shin-choking Hell’s Gate submission that sent “The Beast Incarnate.” Read on for more details.
The Undertaker triggered by a rage against Lesnar, 38, for affording him a defeat in a crucial point of his iconic professional wrestling career. Lesnar infamously broke The Undertaker’s “Wrestlemania” undefeated streak of 21 straight victories in WreslteMania 30 last year.
According to Bleacher Report, the title-free match of the two titans winded down “The Deadman.” The match itself proved to be debatable especially for some fans when during the winding moment of the bout, Lesnar had The Undertaker with his signature Kimura lock finisher. There was an impromptu ringing of the bell from the stands. Then, The Undertaker struggled to break free and was presumed to make a tap. The referee though indicated that the match wasn’t over and once The Deadman broke free he gave the now-fazed Lesnar a low-blow.
The dust may have settled with The Undertaker’s finishing move but scores of fans bombarded the Twitter universe provoking questions from both ends of the spectrum.
“#TheBeast @BrockLesnar just passed out from #HellsGate, and The #Undertaker gets the win! #SummerSlam #BrockvsTaker”
One Twitter handler was more decisive with a statement that echoes of Lesnar being cheated for the win.
“Did the replay show The #Undertaker tap while @WWERobinson counted @BrockLesnar’s shoulders?”.
According to the same report, The Undertaker was seen to be fighting for his breath. It was even during the match and his legs caved in on him as he struggled out of the arena.
The Hollywood Life insinuated that The Dead Man (Mark William Calaway in real life), who has been grappling for the past 25 years for WWE, could be retiring next year in 2016’s Wrestlemania 32.
Other Hollywood highlights for the pay-per-view event which was held at Barclays Center in New York was the sudden resurgence of TV host John Stewart as the event’s host and Stephen Amell of the “Arrow” extending his feud with Stardust in a tag team match.
