"I was completely in shock. Nobody saw it coming. If anybody happened to miss the finish they would have had unlimited oxygen to breathe because everybody held their breath at the same time! It was just unbelievable. The reaction - just silence. I don't even know how to describe it. I did not see it coming. My dad was at the event, he was frantically calling me! That's how big it was I guess, my dad's trying to phone me saying, 'What's going on, what's going on? The Undertaker lost!' He couldn't comprehend it, I don't think anybody could. I know it's a moment that'll be remembered. Lesnar is going to go down in history as the man who did it." - Drew McIntyre discusses the Undertaker loss at Wrestlemania 30
