Well like someone already said we didn't see Brock as he approaches the undertaker, maybe he made a gesture, gave him the finger or something, who knows? He is facing Brock as he is doing the interview so there's plenty of footage of Brock that we don't see.
I agree with this and all of the other points made defending Taker's actions. Nobody knows the other side yet. Hard to judge. And you can definitely tell he was being Lesnar-friendly until, obviously, Lesnar did something to piss him off.
The closest answer I've been able to find that makes sense to me is this-
Apparently wrestling fans feel that Brock had his career handed to him on a silver platter (sound familiar?) He was a fast rising star in the WWE from the jump, and one of biggest storylines I guess was a feud with the Undertaker. I guess at some point he faced Taker in a hell in a cell match, which is supposed to be Taker's specialty or something, and he actually beat Undertaker. Supposedly some time after that Brock left the WWE far behind, but the whole time there had been some kind of agreement for Brock to, at some point, participate in a storyline that involved the Undertaker gaining his revenge on Brock since he had done him such a big favor by boosting his career with the hell in a cell victory.
The whole thing sounds pretty plausible to me. I'm willing to bet Undertaker is either the #2 or #1 WWE star of all time, so it only makes sense that in a business like that you would want to pay your respects in such a manner. On a personal level it also agrees with my assessment of Brock as a bit of a "spoiled athlete". No doubt the man's physical skills have earned him any spoils he achieves as an athlete, but he's definitely got a long history of not exactly "paying his dues" besides in amateur wrestling.
