The Undertaker Lost at WrestleMania, and the Wrestling World Is Stunned (ABC News)

Professional wrestling's greatest streak is over.

The Undertaker lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania XXX Sunday, ending his unbeaten WrestleMania streak at 21 matches.

The streak has been a staple for the pay-per-view event over the past two decades, beginning at WrestleMania VII held in 1991. During his 21-0 run, The Undertaker dispatched opponents such as Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, King Kong Bundy, Triple H and Ric Flair.

But Lesnar proved too much of a challenge, a moment that stunned wrestling fans and personalities. Thousands of fans took to social media, with The Undertaker's loss becoming a trending topic worldwide.

I am speechless…The Deadman never dies but the streak does. @WWE
