The Undertaker on his defeat against Brock Lesnar

"Business, brother.

Forward thinking? Yeah, absolutely," The Undertaker grinned. "I was there to pick a fight. Yeah, Brock Lesnar knew I was there, but my whole mindset there was to pick a fight and start a buzz, and I knew it wouldn't take much.

That was nothing. I mean, it was so simple, but it created such a buzz. It was a shame that it took so long to come to fruition. What most people don't realize is that [Lesnar] went out of his way to come by me, and obviously, I'm thinking in my head, because I'm an athlete, right? And I have that mentality, like, 'okay, you just got stopped in the first round.

Maybe this is going to be a wash, maybe I shouldn't do this. But Brock came that way, so I was like, 'okay, he's coming this way, so I'm going to shoot. I'm going to go with it and whatever happens, happens.'

That was my mentality. I like UFC, but I like WWE, and if there is a chance you transition back to the WWE, I've got this laid out and it's ready to go." The Undertaker continued, "[the confrontation] was vaguely covered, but it was covered.

I don't think he thought he had very many fights left in him anyway and maybe he would transition back to the WWE. And my train of thought is he's coming out of that world coming back into the WWE while I'm trying to position myself to be one of the first to get to him. He went out of his way to come my way, so I took advantage of the situation."
