Brock Lesnar snaps Undertaker's Wrestlemania streak, shocks everyone [VIDEO and GIFs]

Even Lesnar's manager couldn't believe it. (In storyline, of course.)
Last night, Brock Lesnar came out on the winning end of one of the most shocking results in pro wrestling history.

The University of Minnesota amateur wrestling legend and onetime Vikings hopeful ended the Undertaker's vaunted 21 match Wrestlemania undefeated streak by pinning 'Taker 1-2-3, clean as a whistle in the center of the ring.

Since Lesnar only works for World Wrestling Entertainment part-time and wasn't built up as an especially dangerous threat to Undertaker's steak, few if any close observers of the business thought Lesnar, 36, would "go over" (or be booked to defeat) the 49-year-old legend.

Shock was certainly evident on the faces of wrestling fans who were at the New Orleans Superdome for the big event. Here's video of the stunning finish and spectators' immediate reactions:

And here's a cool GIF capturing the can't-believe-it expression on the face of Lesnar's manager, former American Wrestling Association personality Paul Heyman, along with similar reactions from a number of fans:


This GIF also captures the post-match mood quite nicely:


Finally: The end of Undertaker's streak is a huge talker today even among people who barely watch wrestling, so in that sense WWE's shocking booking decision might qualify as a success. But some insiders, including former WWE superstar Sean Waltman (we interviewed Waltman for this week's pro wrestling cover feature), don't think Lesnar was the right man to snap the streak.
