Nothing lasts forever.

It's a bittersweet lesson that WWE WrestleMania 30 taught the world on Sunday.

Two big matches confirmed this: The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship main event.

Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker had the Superdome silent in anticipation throughout a majority of their match.

The Undertaker dominated at the beginning, meeting Lesnar blow-for-blow. Both countered each other's signature and finishing maneuvers until Lesnar hit an F5 halfway through the match. He only pinned The Undertaker for a two-count.

The match went to the ground soon after. The Undertaker lured Lesnar into his Hell's Gate submission. Lesnar countered by deadlifting him and slamming him into the ground. The Undertaker applied Hell's Gate once more, with Lesnar countering again. Lesnar followed up by applying the Kimura Lock on The Undertaker, which was countered.

The Undertaker then attempted Old School, a diving attack on his opponents arm. Lesnar swept The Undertaker from the top rope and hit a second F5. He pinned The Undertaker for a long two-count.

Lesnar then mounted him against the turnbuckle. The Undertaker countered with his Last Ride powerbomb, following up with a Tombstone Piledriver. He went for the pin but only received a two-count.

The Undertaker stood up and attempted one more Tombstone Piledriver. Lesnar reversed and performed a third F5.

The Superdome let out a collective gasp when the three-count was made. No one knew what to do for minutes. Even the announcers were speechless at what just happened.

Brock Lesnar stunned the world and did what others failed to do in 21 attempts: end “The Streak.”

The Undertaker is officially 21-1 at WrestleMania.

In the main event, Daniel Bryan redeemed eight months of torture to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Bryan's first match was the main event qualifying match against Triple H.

The two wrestlers traded the momentum until Bryan hit his flying knee to win the match via pinfall.

However, Bryan's qualifying victory Triple H was short-lived. The Authority, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon assaulted him after the bell, further aggravating his shoulder injury.
