The Lyrics

For those two weren't aware, Wrestlemania 30 was this past Sunday. The Undertaker, a legend in the WWE, had a previous streak of 21-0 at the Show of Shows! That was until former UFC star Brock Lesnar came in and, in a very shocking twist, ended the streak! I've been a professional wrestling fan since I was 8 and I'm surprised I've waited this long to write a parody on the subject...although I think with such a shocking even happening (there were literally grown men sobbing in the Superdome), it had to be done! Original Song
Wrest-le-man’a is like a holiday
There’s no place that I'd rather be
Lightning, lights turn blue all while the druids sing
The fans all jump to their feet

Then you hear his music, ooh that spooky music
His entrance often takes a while
But he's still that same Death Valley Demon
He really really drives 'em wild

Oh no, the Undertaker’s streak won’t be beaten
Hit the Tombstone then 1-2-3 ‘em
There’s a riot down in New Or-le-ans
‘Cause the Undertakers streak, 21 and 0 won’t be beaten

There’s Brock, boy he’s good, yeah he’s rea-lly big
He’s looking really mean to me
His F-5, picks you up - goes for a whirl
The threat to Taker’s streak

He comes with Paul Heyman, that weasel Heyman
What happens when these monsters clash?
When he hits that Old School, down goes Lesnar
Then he will pin ‘em on the [mat]...

No way the Undertaker’s streak will be beaten
Brock will fail just like H-B-K did
Now the Deadman may be taking beatin’s
But he’ll come right back and roll, 21 and 0 won’t be beaten!

Huge knee, punches thrown and Brock Lesnar goes down
Chokeslam that left a bruise
Takedown, armbar, it does not look pretty
The F-5! He kicks out at two!
Undertaker’s losing, Lesnar’s cruisin’, third F-5 slams him down!
Then the ref’s hand comes down for those three seconds
Sev-en-ty thousand stare in doubt

I thought the Undertaker’s streak won’t be beaten
Said he would but I did not believe him
Down in Nawlins, folks are left speechless
‘Cause the Undertaker’s streak, 21 and 0 has been beaten!

Believe it!
It’s done!
Ugh, twenty one and one
Here are some reference videos to get a better idea of what exactly happened:
Undertaker's Streak
Undertaker's Entrance
Brock Lesnar's F5 finishing move
The Undertaker's Tombstone finishing move

I always thought that professional wrestling was about as "spontaneous" as a North Korean May Day parade. If the Undertaker's streak was broken, it was part of a coordinated plan for some revenge matches in the future. I used to watch it on late night TV when Ted Dibiase (The Million Dollar Man), The British Bulldogs, Kamala the Ugandan Headhunter (later "Giant") and Hulk Hogan ruled the ring. Even if it isn't real, those guys are true athletes as well as entertainers.

Most of my knowledge of pro wrestling consists of the era when Cyndi Lauper and MTV got inexplicably involved in what was then known as the WWF (circa 1984 or so) and the Mickey Roarke movie The Wrestler. So my appreciation of this parody was slight, but I admire/respect the work--especially in the 3rd verse, where you were cleverly subbing those cities.

My sister is obsessed with wrestling but I don't know too much about it. Heard the Ultimate Warrior died today or yesterday so that's a bummer (I think he's gonna need The Undertaker to help him out there. Bad taste and too soon). This was a fun parody about something I know next to nothing about!

To tell you the truth, I mostly recognize Brock as the guy from that old commercial when David Cone tries to come up with his own dance in the restroom.

(Artistry) I'm in the same boat as Matty, minus the obsessed sister. I have zero knowledge of Wrestling, other than the odd name here and there. Undertaker's name sounds familiar, but I had not context for this parody. I followed the lins you provided which helped, but I feel like I'm missing out on a lot of the joke. Sorry, I just didn't get it, but this parody isn't for me. It's for all those Wrestling fans out there.

(Artistry) All I really know about wrestling is that it's all fake, they can't act (haven't seen enough stuff with The Rock, but I think he can act a bit), and the Ultimate Warrior was two peas short of a pod. Very well written, but I couldn't get into it as much as I'd like to.
