Chris Jericho is really happy Undertaker lost the streak at WrestleMania 30 to Brock Lesnar

We've heard from many wrestlers who never wanted Undertaker to lose the streak, which is exactly what he did at WrestleMania 30 on April 6, 2014, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, when he was pinned by Brock Lesnar.

Now let's hear from one, Chris Jericho, who is really happy that's what happened.

From his interview with Digital Spy:

"Maybe The Undertaker decided that, 'I don't want to do this anymore'. And much to the fans' chagrin, who wish that we would wrestle until the day we die at 90 years old and explode into a puff of dust in the ring, sometimes you've got to make that decision. If the time was now, Brock was the right guy for that day, and I thought it was amazing. And I would have hated it - hated it - if Undertaker would have retired without losing. I think that would have been a horrible way to go, I'm really happy that he lost The Streak."

Jericho would also say wrestling just once a year is probably harder on the body than wrestling 200 times a year so it's entirely possible Undertaker just didn't have anything left in him and he decided this was the time to end it. There are also rumors that Vince McMahon is the one who made that call and "The Phenom" went along with it because, well, he's business.

We'll likely know the full story one day when the inevitable DVD comes out -- and, really, they could release an entire documentary on the streak and the decision to end it.

As for Jericho's comments, I agree.
