Brock Lesnar’s landmark, streak-conquering victory over the Undertaker at WrestleMania 30 has been nullified after World Wrestling Entertainment reversed the decision in accordance with a petition lobbied by fans.
More than 500,000 disgruntled wrestling fans signed the online petition — the number of signatures required to reverse a match decision, according to the little-known “Tunney Clause” in the WWE Charter of Rules and Regulations.
“Due to the overwhelming amount of input from the WWE Universe, we have no choice but to declare the Undertaker the winner,” reads a WWE press release issued this morning.
“The streak is unbroken.”
Brock Lesnar intends to appeal the decision, according to his manager and mouthpiece Paul Heyman, who insists that his client, Burrock Lesnar, indeed conquered the streak. Heyman repeated this point 17 times for emphasis.
The appeal will likely go before the WWE tribunal review board, which is currently deliberating over demands from the Spanish announce team for stronger tables.
