Vince McMahon Once Wanted Vladimir Kozlov To End The Undertaker's Streak

Vladimir Kozlov could have ended The Streak in an alternate timeline

Brock Lesnar would ultimately end The Undertaker's Streak after 21 victories at WrestleMania 30 but Vince McMahon had planned to end The Phenom's winning streak earlier. 

It has previously been noted that Edge was originally scheduled to beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania 24 but the Rated-R Superstar refused to win. The Undertaker revealed to BT Sport's Ariel Helwani, though, that Vince McMahon wanted Vladimir Kozlov to end The Streak at one point. 

"By the time we got to WrestleMania, we pretty much knew what was going to go down, but there were a few people I guess that he wanted to break the streak. (Vladimir) Kozlov, he wanted him. It was early on, and I think he wanted Edge to go over and Edge refused. He said, 'No. I can't do it.' That's how much he respected the streak and me and what that streak meant to the business. I didn't know that at that time. I didn't know that until years after. That says a lot about the human being he is," The Undertaker said.

Kozlov and The Undertaker would never clash at WrestleMania but they did face off in late 2008 and early 2009 on SmackDown. The Undertaker won their rubber match.
