Tales Of The Tape: The Viper Vs. The Next Big Thing

What it do BLEACHer's. I'm back after a much too long hiatus from one of my favorite sites. As a sort of welcome back gift to myself I have decided to continue with my Tales of the Tape series that I began several months ago. If anyone recalls my past match-ups were between Evan Bourne vs. AJ Styles and Kane vs. Abyss. Without further ado let's get to it.

Accomplishments

Brock Lesnar

1x IWGP Heavyweight Champion in New Jan Pro Wrestling. 1x IWGP Third Belt Champion in Inoki Genome Federation. 3x OVW Southern Tag Team Champion with Shelton Benjamin as the Minnesota Stretch Crew. 3x WWE Champion and the youngest WWE Champ in history winning the belt at age 25. 2002 King of the Ring and 2003 Royal Rumble Winner. In 2003 Pro Wrestling Illustrated awarded Brock with both the Match of the Year and Fued of the Year for his rivalry with and his infamous 60 minute Iron Man Match against Kurt Angle. The also named him #1 on their list of 500 Best Singles Wrestlers for that year.

Randy Orton

Orton is a 2x OVW Hardcore Champion. 1x WWE World Heavyweight Champion and also the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history. 1x WWE World Tag Team Champion with Edge as Rated RKO. 5x WWE Champion. 1x WWE Intercontinental Champion, the 2009 Royal Rumble winner and the 17th Triple Crown Champion in WWE history.

 

Movesets

Brock Lesnar

Brocks moveset consists of your typical big guy power moves, but it well blended with a variety of technical grapples that you would see from guys li8ke Kurt Angle or Sting. Brock utilized a varying amount of suplexes, much like Kurt and Benoit. Brock was even known to utilize a Shooting Star Press in OVW.

Randy Orton

Orton's moveset is varied between grapples and punishing strikes. Randy is a very methodical and cerebral. He doesn't rush anything at all. It's hard to put Randy into a specific wrestling category as he does so much so well. 

Battles

Brock Lesnar

Brock has had memorable fueds against several wrestling superstars. He has gon up against The Undertaker, The Hardy Boyz, The Rock, Big Show, John Cena, Hulk Hogan and Goldberg.

Randy Orton

Orton has had phenomenal matches against the likes of Kurt Angle, CM Punk, John Cena, Chris Beniot, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, MIck Foley and The Undertaker.

Finishers

Brock Lesnar

Lesnars Finisher the F5 or the Verdict in Japan is a devestaing manuver that is delivered with incredible force and impact.

Randy Orton

Orton's most famous finishing manuver is the RKO. The move is made dangerous for its ability to be struck in almost any situation.

Breakdown and Victor

This matchup would feature more in-ring action than mic work seeing as how Brock wasn't known for his phenomenal mic skills. These two would have to go at it several time to settle their dispute. To get the best out of each superstar they would both have to come in to it as a heel, though Randy would be treated as more of the face of the two. Though Brock has a serious power advantage over orton I see Randy coming out the victor in this match due to his greater knack for being a cunning and conniving superstar. After all he is the Viper.
