In case you didn't catch SummerSlam on Sunday, Brock Lesnar survived a fight with Triple H for the ages, one that is being described as "possibly" the last match in the career of "The Game."

With the win, Lesnar rebounds from his loss at Extreme Rules to John Cena and has been rebuilt as one of the most dominant forces in WWE. On Monday Night Raw, Paul Heyman anointed Lesnar as the "Conqueror of the WWE Universe" and stated that by defeating Triple H the way he did on Sunday, he had "jeopardized the future of the entire WWE."

Following this strong statement, this Tout video was put out by Lesnar himself. In it, he basically said he is leaving the WWE for good because he has done all of the things he wanted to do. Now, obviously, this is just an angle to write Lesnar off television for awhile due to his limited contract.

Has Lesnar conquered everything in WWE? Well, not necessarily. Yes, he is a former King of the Ring winner, Royal Rumble winner and a three-time WWE champion.

However, there is one thing Lesnar could do to cement his status as a true conqueror. That would be to end The Streak.

Synonymous with WrestleMania is The Undertaker's now 20-0 undefeated streak. He has defeated the likes of Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kane and Batista inside that streak, but how would a now 47-year-old Undertaker fare against a bigger, stronger Lesnar?

Those WWE fans who can remember back to 2002 can remember matches between these two men that ranged from a Hell in a Cell match to a Biker's Chain match. At No Mercy in 2002, they met inside Hell in a Cell, a match The Undertaker made famous. Personally, I haven't witnessed The Undertaker physically dissected the way he was in that match. The bloody gaze on The Undertaker's face after the match said just that.

The match between The Undertaker and Triple H this past April at WrestleMania 28 was built around the fact that even in victory the previous year in Atlanta, Undertaker was not satisfied with being carted away from the ring. Seeing Lesnar stand atop that cell holding up the WWE title has to stick out as a sore spot in his memory as well.

A 20-0 record against a man as dominant as Lesnar, a man who has beaten him before, would be a huge draw for WrestleMania 29 at MetLife Stadium, and it could go down as one of the biggest matches the event ever saw.

Lesnar may not have seen the last of Triple H and even Shawn Michaels, but the groundwork is there for a showdown with the deadman...he and his legendary streak.
