Edge reveals being approached to end The Undertaker's WrestleMania win streak

Edge is one of the most titled wrestlers of all time, having won thirty-one belts in WWF/E overall: in particular, he was eleven times world champion (seven times World Heavyweight Champion and four times WWE Champion), fourteen times champion of a couple (twelve times World Tag Team Champion and two times WWE Tag Team Champion), five times intercontinental champion and one time United States champion, making him the twelfth wrestler to complete the Grand Slam (new format); he also captured the King of the Ring (2001), Money in the Bank (2005), Royal Rumble (2010) and Bragging Rights Trophy (2010), making him the only fighter in the history of the federation to have achieved these results.

Following his first retirement in 2011, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Speaking on the Busted Open podcast, the Canadian superstar talked about being approached to end The Undertaker's WrestleMania win streak.

"I don't know how far it was rolling until it got to me, but once it got to me, that's when it stopped rolling," Edge recalled. "I think once I said no, well, they're not gonna do it.

My reasoning was I felt while looking at WrestleMania, the card, we need The Streak. You have all the title matches. You have Money in the Bank. I'm looking at the strength of the card. If I end The Streak, well next year, we don't have The Streak as one of the calling cards of WrestleMania, and to me, it became more important than the title matches almost.

To me, it shouldn't have ended until his final match. I said for years, let it be Roman, and at the end of the day, that will be the true passing of the torch. Well, it didn't end up that way." Taker began his career in 1987, working as various gimmicks for World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) and other affiliate promotions, and he became USWA Unified World Heavyweight Champion and WCWA Texas Heavyweight Champion during this time.

After signing with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) in 1989, he had a brief stint in the mid-card as "Mean Mark" Callous, before joining the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) in 1990. The Undertaker is heavily associated with WWE's flagship annual event, WrestleMania, where he became known for The Streak, a series of 21 straight victories, and he headlined the event on five occasions.
