The Deadman Difference

The Reverse Streak
if The Undertaker reigns supreme at WrestleMania, Who is The Show of Shows' least clutch competitor? Jeff Hardy and Goldust both are an abysmal 0-5 at WrestleMania. Mr. McMahon, The Dudley Boys and Finlay are all 0-4. But those still fall short of Tito Santana's streak. After defeating The Executioner at the first WrestleMania, Tito Santana lost his next seven matches, making his the longest losing streak on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
