WWE: Brock Lesnar's Top 10 Greatest Moments in the WWE
The "Next Big Thing" has returned to the WWE! And in his return, Brock Lesnar has created yet another memorable moment.
After trying to become a professional football player, to making one of the most improbable runs to a UFC championship ever, to having life-threatening bouts with diverticulitis, to getting brutally dominated in his last MMA fight, Brock Lesnar has finally come home.
Will his return mean a WrestleMania match a year from now? Does this mean he will be facing CM Punk for the WWE Championship at the next PPV? Does he feel jilted that John Cena chose The Rock over him? We are certainly going to find out!
I personally cannot wait to see what the future holds for Brock and the WWE. And as such, I have come up with a way to catch us up to speed with who Brock Lesnar was and what we have to look forward to.
In this article, we will see some of the most dominant moments in Brock Lesnar's WWE career, and even see the light-hearted side he rarely showed.
So sound the music and let's embark on a thrilling journey of the 10 greatest moments in Brock Lesnar's WWE history.
No. 10: WWE Debut
During a hardcore match, out of nowhere the melee becomes even worse, as Brock Lesnar enters the fold and decimates everyone in sight!
What a way to debut!?!
No. 9: A 500-Pound "Light-Hearted" F-5
Do you remember who Zack Gowen is?
Do you remember Brock Lesnar's strength?
Well, when both are combined, we are led to moment No. 9.
Brock Lesnar comes to the aid of Stephanie McMahon, Kurt Angle and Zack Gown, who is fighting for a WWE contract. Brock not only defies Mr. McMahon, but he F-5s The Big Show!
N0. 8: Brock vs. Heyman
Let it be known that Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar haven't always been the best of friends. There was a time when Heyman was the GM of SmackDown and formed an alliance with Kurt Angle.
Brock Lesnar was not a fan of this and ended up getting a steel cage match against Paul.
The match itself is worthy of moment No. 8, not to mention that it was for a shot at Kurt Angle's WWE Unified Championship.
No. 7: The King of the RIng
To earn a shot at the WWE Championship is a feat in and of itself, but to earn it by winning the King of the Ring is monumental.
That is what leads us to moment No. 7—Brock Lesnar vs. Rob Van Dam in the final match of the King of the Ring Tournament.
Not only was this a great match between the two men, but it was also Brock's first title-shot win.
No. 6: F-5 vs. F-U
Back when John Cena rapped, had a chain gang, and was a heel, he feuded with a man named Brock Lesnar, who was at that time the WWE Champion.
Not only did John Cena lose to The Rock at WrestleMania 28, but he also lost to Brock Lesnar this night in particular, even though he pulled out all the stops.
This is moment No. 6, because Brock Lesnar made John Cena famous.
No. 5: The Dead Man Cometh
The Undertaker recently became 20-0 in WrestleMania action this past Sunday, but he hasn't faced Brock Lesnar yet at a WrestleMania.
If this match at No Mercy is proves anything, it is that The Undertaker should be very afraid for his streak.
No. 4: "The Next Big Thing" vs. "The Most Electrifying Superstar in the WWE"
The Rock is not unfamiliar with once-in-a-lifetime matches. At SummerSlam 2002, he defended his WWE Championship against Lesnar.
Unlike WrestleMania 28, The Rock met a much tougher competitor, and though The Rock came very close, he could not overcome The Next Big Thing.
Brock Lesnar stole not only the show, but the WWE Championship.
No. 3: He Really Is an Iron Man
Culminating the end of his chase for the WWE Championship after putting up with a crooked Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar faced Kurt Angle on SmackDown in an iron man match for the WWE Championship.
Not only did Brock not tap, but he played the game the best way he could, and defeated Kurt Angle for the gold.
Very deserving of moment No. 3!
No. 2: And the Ring Comes Crashing Down
Earlier this year, the WWE pulled off the same feat, but it was no where close to as monumental as this moment.
Not only has Brock Lesnar F-5ed The Big Show, but he has also destroyed the ring with The Big Show too.
Just listen to Michael Cole's reaction if you don't think this is fitting for No. 2.
No. 1: We Want Lesnar
No one can deny the electricity that was at Raw this past Monday night. Not only were the rumor mills exploding over speculation on the timing of Brock Lesnar's re-debut, but in what form he was going to do it.
Personally, my brother and I were debating over how he was going to get involved with Rock-Cena at WrestleMania 28, and were left very disappointed that he didn't show.
On Monday night I was no longer disappointed. I was jumping out of my skin over the realization that Brock Lesnar had just returned to the WWE!
You have to love the gems Michael Cole can create.
Not only was I surprised and infatuated with the F-5 on Cena, I might as well call myself a Cole-miner too.
Brock Brings Destruction
Brock Lesnar is such a polarizing force, that major media outlets are already talking about his return to pro wrestling.
I wonder how they are going to cover him as he rips through the ranks of the WWE. Maybe they will make him out to be a monster? Maybe they'll say he had to go back to the fake stuff? Or maybe, just maybe, this is what will bring them over the wrestling side of thinking.
I cannot wait to see the path of destruction that will begin with Brock Lesnar once again in the WWE.
