Paul Heyman Blog: WWE Wrestlemania 32 Hype, Undertaker Streak, Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose

Paul Heyman had a new blog on Yahoo, here are some highlights

on Brock breaking the streak
Yet, in the world of mainstream media, one could make the argument that Brock’s greatest accomplishment occurred at WrestleMania XXX, when The Beast conquered The Undertaker’s undefeated streak. On that night, during the very first WrestleMania ever broadcast on the WWE Network, Brock Lesnar stepped into the ring against The Undertaker, arguably WWE’s greatest all-time legend. The Undertaker, the heavy favorite, was 21-0 at WrestleMania. Legends, Hall of Famers, superstars, Gods of the Squared Circle like Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Randy Orton, Edge and CM Punk, had all been matched up against The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Each and every single one of them were defeated. Beaten. Pinned or tapped out. The Undertaker was 21-0.

on Wrestlemania as an event
Brock’s victory over Undertaker is, in many ways, his greatest accomplishment simply because it happened on “The Grandest Stage of ’em All,” WrestleMania. WWE’s annual mega-event attracts fans from more countries than its even credible to claim, and has become a pop-culture phenomenon that transcends the genre of sports entertainment, professional wrestling, or even WWE itself. Much like the Super Bowl is its own brand separate and distinct from the NFL, WrestleMania has taken on a life of its own.

on Brock Lesnar
All this leads to this Sunday night, April 3, when Brock Lesnar once again provides sports, entertainment and sports entertainment fans around the world the rare opportunity of seeing an once-ever athlete, in his prime, perform at a level no one can match. This Sunday, Brock Lesnar will face Dean Ambrose in a No Holds Barred Street Fight at WrestleMania 32. I’d spend the time to explain to you what a No Holds Barred Street Fight is, but I am under the impression people pay to see Brock Lesnar because … well … he’s BROCK LESNAR!
