The Undertaker, who has lost 21 straight matches. The streak began on June 7, 1998 at the King of the Ring event, when Taker was defeated by Kane in a First Blood match. The losing streak continued through WrestleMania XV, when Taker was defeated by Big Boss Man in a Hell in a Cell match.

WWE longest losing streak
It’s not often that you find a professional wrestler with a losing streak longer than the one currently held by WWE superstar Kane. But that’s exactly what you get when you take a look at the career of veteran wrestler, Jerry “The King” Lawler. For nearly two decades, Lawler has been on a losing streak that shows no signs of stopping any time soon. In fact, his most recent defeat came just last month at the hands of current NXT Champion, Bobby Roode.
In sports, it is said that the record book never lies. And as WWE looks to rebound from a dismal 2017, one record they will want to erase is their lengthy losing streak. Going back to last summer, the company has gone winless on pay-per-view and network specials. Some will say the talent pool is depleted and aging, while others say creative has run out of ideas. Regardless of the reason, WWE needs to start picking up wins soon or fans could tune out for good.

The events that led to the streak’s end
The losing streak came to an end on June 23, 2002, when The Undertaker finally defeated Kane in a Hell in a Cell match at Bad Blood. The match was originally scheduled to be a regular singles match, but due to the stipulations of the match, it was changed to a Hell in a Cell match. The match was brutal, and both men were bloodied. The match ended when The Undertaker finally managed to pin Kane after a choke slam off the top of the cell.
After the match, The Undertaker was helped to the back by officials, while Kane was left lying in the ring. The streak is the longest in WWE history, and it has been cited as one of the reasons why The Undertaker is considered one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.
Reactions from fans and WWE personnel alike
Fans and WWE personnel alike were shocked when The Undertaker finally ended the streak. Many had thought that Kane would never be able to beat The Undertaker, and that the streak would never end.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was one of the people who was surprised by the outcome of the match. He was quoted as saying, “I didn’t think it would ever happen. I didn’t think Kane could do it. I thought The Undertaker’s streak was unbreakable.”
