Michelle McCool Claims Edge Turned Down Ending The Undertaker's Streak
Didn't want to be the 1 in 15-1...
Former WWE Divas champion Michelle McCool spoke to The New York Post prior to the premiere of husband The Undertaker's "The Last Ride" documentary, which streams Sunday night on WWE Network, following the conclusion of Money in the Bank.
Among her comments and perspectives, McCool discussed the ending of her husband's famed WrestleMania win streak, and revealed that several years earlier, in 2008, Edge passed up the opportunity to end it himself.
"Actually I remember a few years prior that WrestleMania 24 versus Edge they talked about Edge breaking the streak and it was Edge that was actually like, 'That makes zero sense. I don't want to do that. Why would I do that? The fans already love him. What's it gonna do for Edge?', McCool recalls.
"It was Edge that went to bat for the streak. I know they had talked about it prior to the match with Brock, but you know it happened. It's fine, it's not like it's an end-all, be-all for Mark by any stretch of the imagination."
McCool also doesn't feel that Brock Lesnar needed to end the streak, but stated that Undertaker was a pro about it, saying, "He understands business is business."
