Brock Lesnar
Since shock was rampant, the widespread belief among wrestling fans was that the ending of the Undertaker match at Wrestlemania 30 was a botch. Some even went as far as to say that Brock Lesnar was not supposed to win. However, the reason why the ending appeared off was because Undertaker was working with a concussion, and Lesnar had to work as a ring general, a role that he is not accustomed to.

Billy Gunn
Since the performers have a tendency to go all out during the biggest wrestling pay per view of the year, it should come as no surprise that there were several Wrestlemania 30 injuries. Undertaker was sent to the hospital for a potential concussion and injured neck. Billy Gunn was said to be bleeding internally. A lot of other performers suffered the usual cuts and bruises. Rough night for WWE stars.

Brock Lesnar
Considering how brutal the match at Wrestlemania 30 was for him, it comes as no surprise to many backstage that Undertaker was taken to a local hospital in an ambulance after taking a beating from Brock Lesnar. The fear was that Undertaker has an injured neck. Doctors also checked for a possible concussion. The belief is that Undertaker went all out for what could be his final match in WWE.

In a peculiar move, Christian was removed from a scheduled match on the Main Event by WWE officials this week.
