It really doesn't at all. Brock Lesnar felt like absolutely no bigger of a star for ending the Streak than he did before the match, and that's the problem with ending it on this guy. There was no rub received because there was no rub that could be given, he's already a legendary main event wrestler, Why wouldn't you give it to a young guy and try to make them with it? And I know the argument is "well, what if the young guy flopped?" WELL THEN AT LEAST THEY TRIED. At least they would have made an attempt to create a new star, it's better than just tossing it in the dumpster and having Taker lose just to lose. The idea of breaking the Streak should be that whoever does it is a main event guy now, not doing it just because it's his last match and he has to lose. Losing to Lesnar is equally as wasteful as retiring with the Streak in tact.Just reiterating. Seems like every person is blaming the WWE/Vince for this.
I don't like that it happened against a part timer, but overall - I'm glad it happened. Taker probably has nothing left to give, and this really elevates Brock/Heyman and gave us the biggest shock in Mania history.
